Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -December 3, 2016




On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
December 3, 2016

When I came to New York on July 29, 1947, I went for five months to a high school in the Bronx. I thought about that when I saw the Broadway musical, A Bronx Tale, book by Chazz Palminteri, music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater, at the Longacre Theatre, a musical about a young boy, a remarkable Hudson Loverro in 1960, and Bobby Conte Thorton, equally fine, as a young man in 1968 growing  up in the Bronx. Robert De Niro and Jerry Zaks co-directed it, and Sergio Trujillo was responsible for the choreography. Both years were tough years for Italian and Black families. full of prejudice and violence. Nick Cordero dominates the stage as a gangster, who rules Belmont Avenue, and Richard H. Blake shines as a father/bus driver, who wants to save his young son from the evil influences in his neighborhood. It is a thoughtful, intelligent musical, well acted by everyone in the cast. The costumes of William Ivey Long and the dances and movements of Sergio Trujillo reflect the period perfectly. The music and the lyrics are easy to listen to, and the singing and dancing is excellent. 



The Pigeon in The Taj Mahal, by Laoisa Sexton, at the W. Scott McLucas Studio Theatre of the Irish Repertory Theatre, is a play about a lonely young man (John Keating) (photo below)who lives in a caravan at The Taj Mahal Trailer Park in the West of Ireland. One night, he discovers an unconscious young lady (Laiosa Sexton) lying outside his home, and brings her inside to revive her. What follows is an unusual tale, well acted by a four member cast, directed by Alan Cox. We celebrated with an opening night party in the gallery of the theater, with delicious hors d'oeuvres (especially my favorite, shepherd's pie), and two fine wines.






Ride the Cyclone
, by Brooke Maxwell and Jacob Richmond, at the Lucille Lortel theatre, is a production of the MCC Theater. A group of teenagers in a high school choir are tragically killed in a roller coaster accident. One is allowed to return to life. The talented seven member cast is choreographed and directed expertly by Rachel Rockwell. It is an unusual, imaginative musical, and the cast sing excellently. We celebrated the success of the show at Sushi Samba, 87 7th Ave. South.


Film Forum presented a press preview of The Lion in Winter, by Anthony Harvey, USA, 1968. It stars Peter O' Toole and Katharine Hepburn in a historical drama, based on a successful Broadway play. The film is beautifully photographed and it captures the 12th century, medieval life perfectly. The acting is fine, and Hepburn won an Oscar for her performance, However, it is a talky movie about a king with three unpleasant sons. Dysfunctional families have always existed!


A lovely  event took place at SIDECAR at PJ Clarkes. 205 East 55th St. It was the Bachelors' Brunch for the 62nd International Debutante Ball. Among the charming and beautiful debutantes present, I met Camila Mendoza Echavarria, Dwight D. Eisenhower's great-great-granddaughter, Oleg Cassini's twin nieces, Connor and Diana Castellano, with their mother and aunt, and Megan Liu Treacy, the daughter of Evelyn Tracey. Among the handsome bachelors present, I met the three Huffinesbrothers, David, Russell and Terence. That, plus a delicious brunch, made the afternoon memorable.


MoMA held a press preview of a fascinating exhibition A Revolutionary Impulse: The Rise of the Russian Avant-Garde. December 3-March 12, 2017. It features books, paintings and film clips from the Russian Revolution. I especially enjoyed seeing the film clips from the 1920s by famous filmmakers like Sergei Eisenstein, whose Potemkin is a masterpiece. Three other interesting film clips by three different directors are shown in the special screening room. As you enter, there is a film clip of The Fall of the Romanov Dynasty, which sets the theme of what follows. It is a wonderful exhibition and I recommend it highly.
