Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -December 5, 2015

 

 

 

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
December 5, 2015

On Broadway, School of Rock, book by Julian Fellowes, lyrics by Glenn Slater, music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, at the Winter Garden, opens on December 6. My comments will appear in next week's column.
 
Off- Broadway, Invisible Thread, by Matt Gould & Griffin Matthews, at 2econdStage Theatre, is about a young Black American (Griffin Matthews), who goes Uganda for a Charity Organization, hoping to do good for the people. As he is gay, and Uganda is anti-gay, it is a bit of a problem. The choreography (supposedly African type) is routine and dull. The story (supposedly true) does not impress. The dialogue is puerile. However, the singing is fine, and the cast is well directed by Diane Paulus.

Rose, by Laurence Leamer, at the Clurman Theatre at Theatre Row, directed by Caroline Reddick Lawson, is a one woman play, with Kathleen Chalfant giving an amazing performance as Rose Kennedy, the matriarch of the Kennedy family. It takes place in her home in Hyannis Port, Mass, in late July, 1969, after the Chappaquiddick tragedy, where her son Senator Edward M. Kennedy drove his car into the water, and his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, drowns. Chalfant, in 90 minutes, tells the story of this strong willed lady, who survives the deaths of her famous sons. The playwright had access to 40 hours of tapes, and most of the play is based on her own words. Rose Kennedy would be proud of Chalfant's superb performance. The opening night party took place in the Lounge at Theatre Row with the star and the creative team.
 
 A Child's Christmas in Wales, by Dylan Thomas, adapted & directed by Charlotte Moore, at the DR2 Theatre, will now open on December 6. My comments will appear in next week's column.

I went to BB Kings, 237 West 42nd St, for the pre-opening night party for Gigantic, because it actually opened the following night.




The cast and creative team enjoyed desserts and a bar, featuring rum cocktails. Among the talented cast were Leslie Kritzer, Burke Moses and Taylor Louderman, whose charming mother from Missouri was present to applaud her beautiful daughter.


I dropped by for a quick photo of New York Giant Rashad Jennings and Dr. Oz at the Rashad Jennings Foundation 1st Annual GIANT Night of Comedy Team Fundraiser & Show presented by Rocky Mountain High Brands, at the Gotham Comedy Club, 208 West 23rd St. It seemed like a fun evening, but I had to attend another reception at the same time.
 
Denise Rich & Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research #AngelBall2015 held a reception at Tao Downtown, 92 Ninth Avenue, with cocktails provided by Manhattan Moonshine, 50 Bleu Vodka and Forever Young Wine, plus delicious hors d'oeuvres. I met William Kehler, the CEO & Founder of Manhattan Moonshine, which I tasted and enjoyed. Denise Rich addressed the crowd, speaking of the wonderful work done by her foundation in memory of her dear daughter. They have raised enormous sums of money over the past 20 years. Denise can be proud.

Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) held its annual New York Dinner at The Pierre Hotel. The celebrity hosts were Whoopi Goldberg and John O'Hurley, with Baseball Hall of Fame Managers Joe Torre and Tommy Lasorda. It was a lovely event
 
A commercial film Every Thing Will Be Fine, by Win Wenders, Germany/USA, 2014, is in 3D. As such, it is photographed beautifully with gorgeous landscape scenes. As a drama, it is difficult to appreciate. James Franco is a frustrated writer. Rachel McAdams is his unhappy girlfriend, and Charlotte Gainsbourg is a grieving mother. The writer has an accident with his car, resulting in his meeting Gainsbourg. The film is painfully slow, with excruciating scenes of sad faces. There is not a light moment in this ponderous film. All three leading actors are boring company.
