Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -January 2, 2016

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!

January 2, 2016

The Pirates of Penzance
, libretto by William S. Gilbert, music by Arthur Sullivan, at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, is a production of the New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players, As always, they offer an entertaining afternoon for fans of the two English operetta geniuses. The cast was first rate, with an outstanding Carter Lynch as Frederic, with a fine tenor voice, strong in all registers, that projected the words clearly throughout the theater. James Mills was a funny Major General Stanley and David Auxier delighted the audience with his pratfalls as the Sergeant of Police. Among the female members of the cast, Sarah Caldwell Smith revealed dazzling high notes as Mabel and Angela Christine Smith was a comical Ruth. The ensemble was terrific, singing and acting wonderfully. It was a thoroughly enjoyable musical afternoon, thanks to the Artistic Director/director & conductor Albert Bergeret. As we rarely see the operettas of Gilbert & Sullivan in New York, we must consider Albert Bergeret as a New York treasure.

With little happening on the theater front, I discovered Classic Countdown on radio station WQXR. One hundred classics were played according to the wishes of their faithful listeners. I had the pleasure of hearing eleven of the fifty-three already played, and I hope to hear more before it ends during the remaining days of 2015.

They included Piano Concerto No.1 by Beethoven, Piano Concerto in F by Gershwin, two violinconcertos by Brahms and Mendelssohn, Symphony No. 5 by Mahler, Symphony No. 4 by Brahms(which I first heard at Carnegie Hall conducted by Stokowski in 1948), the suite from Der Rosenkavalier by Strauss, the suite from Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky, Rodeo by Copland, The Firebird by Stravinsky and selections from the second act of The Magic Fluteby Mozart. They were recorded by some of the finest orchestras in the world. It was a pure delight. I urge everyone to support both the NY G&S company and the radio station WQXR, two NYC treasures that make our city unique.

Every night, I like to go to bed with a good book, or, at least, with someone who has read a good book. Yesterday I received a book in the mail. Do You Know Me? by Tony Roberts is a memoir of his acting career over five decades. It details the trials and tribulations of an actor's life. He has enjoyed a successful career on the Broadway stage, in film, on television and as the voice in audio books. Every aspiring young actor should acquire this book for its honesty and valuable advice. Every general reader will delight in the many anecdotes about famous actors, directors and producers with whom Roberts has worked. There is a chapter on Woody Allen. He appeared in six of his films, including the Oscar winning Annie Hall. He worked ten years for the Broadway producer David Merrick, for which he was nominated twice for a Tony Award as Best Actor in a Musical. It is a splendid addition to everyone's library, who is a fan of the arts, especially theater and film. I enjoyed every minute reading this wonderful memoir of an actor I have always admired.
