Hi, I'm Andrew Henry a boy born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. I am currently enrolled at Hunter College and I love food (french fries in particular). I love fashion and music, and my stage name is Holy Alejandro. I got my stage name from Lady Gaga's song "Alejandro" because I would sing it so much in my Junior year of high school that people just started calling me "Alejandro." At a young age my parents enrolled me in piano lessons. I always used to sing in church but when I started playing the piano that was when I truly fell in love with the art of music. The feeling that I get listening to a piece of music, no matter the genre, is satisfying. It's amazing to see someone rejoice, cry, or even be confused by a piece of music. I am very passionate about my own music and love to create. I live my life 3-Fold between reality, fantasy, and comedy. I truly believe in honoring your vision, or your vision will dishonor you.
When I first got wind that there was a play called Building The Wall I knew it had to have something to do with the political state of America. I knew it had to make reference to Donald Trump to some capacity, since he loves to talk about building walls.
Me: "Walking? What do you mean?"
Hostess: "You will walk through different rooms with this show."
Me: "Sooooo ummmmmm, are they going to give me headphones? Is there audio? ARE THERE ANY ACTORS?!"
Hostess: "There are no actors and the audio is in each room."
Gemma: I've never seen a ballet that wasn't all lovey-dovey
Andrew: Omg! Same!!! Let's start from the top!
Gemma: And this show was super...heavy. It's a good thing I had a margarita beforehand haha
Christine: Yeah it's not every day you see a pas de deux with a pedo and a little girl
Tom isn't the only one with issues - the entire family is a hot mess! Joey got an opportunity to go on a business venture for two years in Germany but decides she doesn't want to go. Ray on the other hand is sleeping with her boss, and quits her job because she feels that quitting would bring them closer, which it most certainly doesn't.
Xiomara and Isabel were a team they always did everything together. They joked about customers, came and left work together, and they would even steal from the store register together. They called stealing "borrowing" because they always put the money back but little did they know this bad habit was going to haunt one of them in the near future.
Ira and his gay nephew, Christopher, hosted Larry and his gay son, Bryan, at their house for the weekend. Everyone in the house was a democrat except for Ira’s nephew, Christopher. He voted for... none other than Donald Trump and basically kept this secret from everybody so you know it was a pretty big deal for everyone in the house and for me as well…
I have literally never learned so much from a play in my life. When Heuy P. Newton called another member of the group by their full name “Afeni Shakur” I was like…
Shakur? The only Shakur I have ever known was Tupac. So I took out my cellphone and googled “Tupac’s mom” and low and behold…
PXP writers Andrew and Christine went to the Opera and shared their entire experience with us - from getting ready to their post-show reactions.
I am a kid enamored with art, entertainment, and fame. So when I heard that there was a show about the late great Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, my heart exploded!
I honestly didn’t know how to feel; this was the first time I was shocked but felt no emotion. I usually pick sides but I couldn’t blame anybody. I couldn’t blame Anna’s dad because, of course, he did not know what her future was going to hold and I couldn’t even imagine questioning Anna because she was clearly the victim.
Andrew: Let's get down to business. Why should we care about the TONY's...or DO we care about the TONY's? That's the topic.
Gemma: So, I personally care about the TONY's because it's like my sporting event.
Andrew: It's your Superbowl.
Gemma: Okay, peeps. Lateness...to a show. Feelings?
Christine: Prices, and if you're going with someone or not. What is considered "too late"?
Andrew: Listen, it's not a problem, because what if the person is just trying to look for spots around town to eat? After the theatre.
Christine: They can do before or after...or during the wonderful thing called intermission.
Gemma: Then do that AFTER THE SHOW!
A lot of times, I go see musicals and I don't know the WHO behind the music. And then I find out and I am like, "YEAH!" So, to inspire you to check out who the composer/lyricist/writer in a musical is (dude, it could possibly be an old favorite artist on the radio), Here are some composer from musicals currently showing...
It's probably the best season weather and fashion wise! You don't have to wear a jacket if you don't want to, which enables you to show off your slayFUL* outfit. Yes, I just made that up. *slayful = no one can compare, even if they tried!
Don't worry. Nothing big is going to happen, besides a mountain of shame...
But to help you through one of those not-so-subtle tired times, we are here to help you out.
Remember: Fall is the perfect season to have fun with fashion. Be daring, and unapologetic at the same time.
