Every third Wednesday of the month, a fabulous actor/singer/dancer fills out editor Matthew Wexler’s nosey little questionnaire and offers a glimpse of what he looks like from a bit closer than the mezzanine. We kicked off the New Year with a gamble and it paid off. Albert Guerzon from Honeymoon in Vegas dishes about how to stay in shape and where to binge on “wangs” and ribs.
Honeymoon in Vegas
208 West 41st Street
Your ultimate honeymoon destination:
Boracay, Philippines. It’s not as crowded and less expensive than Hawaii.
How do you channel your inner Elvis?
Hmm. My Elvis reminds me of The Dynamo outfits in Mamma Mia. I’ve done that show for so long I can’t help but compare the boots and spandex. But I channel the moment I get to take those heels off after the curtain call. LOL!
If I wasn’t a performer, I would be:
A teacher. I think if I went the normal college route I probably would’ve studied early music education.
Places, Intermission or Curtain Call?
I love the curtain call! There’s something really special about seeing a crowd stand up and feeling like you’ve done your job as an individual and as a company. There’s a huge sense of teamwork and gratification that comes from hearing screams and seeing people on their feet. I don’t know what they’re going through but for those two-and-a-half hours we’ve been able to help them escape, laugh and be inspired.
There’s more! Take the leap…
The best post-show cocktail in New York City is at:
I don’t drink but I love me some sticky wangs and Dallas BBQ!
After you’ve hit all the traditional sites of New York City, you should totally go to…
the West Village and just walk and eat. It’s not as crowded as Times Square and it’s filled with funky, trendy people walking dogs, kids playing, and people painting—it’s artsy but not as a Broadway commercial environment. I love it there!
If I could live anywhere else in the world it would be…
In a brownstone in the West Village or in Piermont, NY.
My workout “secret” is:
I love me a good Beachbody workout like INSANITY. I love sweating out some stress and endorphins.
When I’m looking for a date, nothing attracts me more than:
My sexy wife! But we like going to zen, peaceful joints and not the loud, clubby places.
My favorite website to visit that you may not have heard of is:
I’m a Beachbody coach and it helps me and others stay accountable with their fitness goals.
People would be surprised to learn that I . . .
once owned a Filipino Fusion restaurant in Rockland County.
When I was 10, I wanted to be just like:
Biggest gamble I’ve ever taken in my life:
Opening up a restaurant.
Ten year from now I’d like to be:
A songwriter for the stars. I write a lot now and would love to collaborate one day with Alicia Keys and John Legend types. It’ll happen, WATCH!
