Joseph Hallman's Man Crush Monday Picks
My name is Joseph Hallman, and these are my picks for Man Crush Monday.
"Marc Silver has been one of my long standing mancrushes. Aside from being pretty dreamy, he's got a gorgeous voice and writes great songs. One of these days, we will eventually figure out a collaboration!"
"Jordan one of the mancrushes I have known the longest. Jordan is a kind, mindful man with lots of creative and intellectual interests. He is a definite asset to his students at University of the Arts and to artistic life in general, in Philly."
Charles Cobine and Owen Franklin
"These two! Both handsome, both hella smart, and both super kind (and they both look good in hats)!"
"Jay has been doing his best to diversify the Philly arts scene via his role as Programming Director at the Kimmel Center (and he's a little cutie too!). Kimmel is lucky to have him, and he's also a Penn alum."
David Devan and David Dubbeldam--The Double D's
"David Devan is the Director of Opera Philadelphia and has transformed not only Philly's art scene, but has influenced the opera world both domestically and internationally. His creative approach to programming and his out-of-the-box thinking in regards to arts management, promotion, and programming has been inspiring. The other David just wrapped up his schooling and is serving as a chaplain. Both are handsome, kind, and pretty damn brilliant."
