Though its plot is communion-wafer thin, "Altar Boyz," the Christian boy-band satire currently being performed by Palo Alto Players, still offers some praiseworthy parody and fun.

We attended the Saturday's showing of The Altar Boyz and what a surprize it was. A highly entertaining 90 plus minutes has us laughing and clapping eleven rows back from the stage. Each member of this talented groups got to highlight their song and dance talent - and they each pulled it off like real pros. We agree with Karla Kane's review, expect on one important point. We found Daniel Harper's caricature and performance to be not only spot on, but as fully engaging as the other members of his troop. A delightful evening!
