Let the record show that sweet, adorable Christopher J. Hanke will always be my favorite Broadway baby.
I saw Hair this weekend in New York City.
How have we not talked about this?
Allow me introduce you to Kyle Riabko and Ace Young.
The show was really good. Ace Young’s abs were VERY NICE. And I am too much of a lady to comment on the nudity. In fact, I almost missed the nudity because I wasn’t paying attention. And when I did realize all the nakedness, I got embarrassed and looked away. But that’s neither here nor there. We’re talking about Kyle’s voice and Ace’s abs.
At the end of the show, the audience is invited up to the stage to dance with the hippies. As I’m trying to figure out the best route to get down there in order to inspect Abe’s abs up close and personal, he was there. In front of me. Three rows ahead. Hugging the entire front row of the balcony.
It was sort of like the time Jordan was two rows up in front of me at the New Kids on the Block concert (last year) and I couldn’t move because I was transfixed by the awesomeness.
So there’s Ace. Hugging people. And I’m standing there. My friend Nancy Jane punches me into reality and I start making my way down to get a free hug from the hippie. But then he ran off through a curtain and I was sad.
Fortunately, I will always have his abs burned in my memory.
If you are living in NYC or planning to go visit the Big Apple (and optional on-stage peen doesn’t bother you) I suggest you see this show.
And make sure you sit on the front row of the mezzanine section.
