Albert Guerzon: Actor, Singer, Dancer, and Songwriter
This was Albert Guerzon's website from around 2006 when his theatrical agent was Corey Smith through 2014. The content below is from the site's archived pages. Today you can follow Albert Guerzon on Twitter or Instagram under alguerzon.
I've been a fan of Albert Guerzon since I saw him in Mama Mia. I was sitting on the lanai of a fabulous condo in Maui when I discovered that the domain for albertguerzon.com was available. I bought it with the goal of recreating some of its content from the site's archived pages. I definitely didn't want someone else purchasing the domain and re-purposing it for something that had nothing in common with Albert Guerzon. So there I was delighted that of all the condo rentals on Maui I could have selected I chose this one. The views of the western coast of Maui as the sun set were amazing. The hike at the top of HaleakalÄ, a massive shield volcano that forms more than 75% of the Hawaiian Island of Maui felt and looked as if I were on another planet. It was so alien with very thin air at over 10,000 feet that I almost felt I was hallucinating. The northern coastline is so wild while the western coast is line with resorts and high condos. Well enough of my gushing about Maui.
Enjoy looking back at the earlier years of Albert Guerzon's career. I expect to see more great things from this exceptionally talented man.
So buckle your seatbelts and take a wiz ride back......

So like all of us, performers or not, life is a work in progress. So here’s the short version and highlights of mine. I was born in Nyack, NY and grew up in Rockland County. HOLLA! I’m fourth of five kids and grew up around church, athletics and my father singing lots of Sinatra. After Nyack High School I went to The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) on the Upper West Side. Thankfully, I was able to do a few NY workshops to get my feet wet soon after.
My first workshop was MISTER with Anthony Rapp. Later I toured with some dance artists like The Roc Project feat. Tina Novak of Tommy Boy Records and UK artist Holly James of Ultra Records. Then Broadway called. I made my Broadway debut playing Eddie in Mamma Mia! It was truly a dream come true. During this time I was able to also perform my own material at NY venues such as The Triad, The Cutting Room and Crash Mansion with up and coming producer Christian Almiron. After a long run and lots of ABBA I relocated to San Diego’s Old Globe to perform in the World Premier of The Times They Are A-Changin’ directed by Twyla Tharp. I know! I was working with Twyla Tharp! I was trying to bring back tumbling passes I haven't done for years. It was a physical but beautiful challenge. I returned to NY to teach some dance classes only to find myself going back to San Diego a few months later. This time I was headed to La Jolla Playhouse to do the Broadway bound revival of The Wiz with David Alan Grier and the direction of Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys). After easing on down the road I moved to LA for a bit where I performed at BB Kings at Universal City Walk. More recently I performed in a workshop with Vivian Reed called Virtuosity and soon after was blessed with the opportunity to sing with her in Paris. Look out for Virtuosity in the near future!
So there it is short and sweet. Or at least what I wanted to tell you. God willing, this is just the beginning. Please check back for more projects, gigs, class and info. I hope your life and career are well. “With God all things are possible.” Peace

Name: Albert Guerzon
Show: Honeymoon in Vegas
208 West 41st Street
Hometown: Nyack, NY
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.
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: www.teambeachbody.com
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:Michael Jackson!
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!
