Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -January 2, 2019

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

January 2, 2019


 

Apologia, by Alexei Kaye Campbell, at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, is  a production of the Roundabout Theatre Company. An Art Historian (Stockard Channing) celebrates her birthday in at her home in the English countryside. Her two middle-aged sons visit with the ladies in their life. She has written a memoir and has not mentioned them. Their resentment for her neglect when they were children has a corrosive effect on the celebration. The five actors are superb, under the direction of Daniel Aukin. It is a serious, intelligent play.

 

Ordinary Days, music and lyrics by Adam Gwon, at the Clurman Theatre, Theatre Row is a Keen Company production. Four performers sing a series of songs about their life and problems living in New York, directed by Jonathan Silverstein. The music is pleasant and the cast sings well. Their stories are less interesting. The opening night party took place in the Theatre Row lounge with guests Melissa Errico, Kate Baldwin, Hunter Fisher and Jen Cody.

In the new downstairs cabaret room at Birdland, 315 West 44th St, which is a wonderful space, Jamie deRoy & friends (photo below) performed a benefit for The Actors Fund. The program was marvelous, with Jamie introducing her guests after singing two witty songs. She joined Gretchen Cryer & Nancy Ford in the third song of their three numbers. Donnie Kehr brought the house down when he sang and played the piano with a medley of popular songs, by songwriters like Billy Joel, Elton John, and others. Steven Scott, a stand-up comedian, added humor to the event. Allison Blackwell was one of the highlights of the show when she performed two songs, and Joan Ryan closed the evening with two songs. Ron Abel, piano, and Richie Goods, bass, accompanied the performers, directed by Barry Kleinbort. It was a magnificent evening of cabaret.

The Horton Foote Prize was presented to two playwrights Jacklyn Backaus (India Pale Ale) and Lauren Yee (Cambodian), who was not able to be present, at the Lotos Club, 5 East 66th St. All the cast of India Pale Ale were present to congratulate their playwright, as well as members of the Foote family, and guests like Judith Ivey, Elizabeth Ashley, Andre Bishop, and Lois Smith. A reception before and after was held, and I had the pleasure of photographing the charming female members of the cast (photo below) and the playwright. It is always a lovely event.
 

I went to a cocktail party at Tuscany Steakhouse, 117 West 58th St, to photograph American Idol star Diana DeGarmo, who has a new television series. She is a lovely lady, and we all congratulated her on her success. The restaurant serves delicious food and fine wine. It is always a pleasure to attend their events.

 

I was invited to a media preview of CMX CineBistro, 400 East 62nd Street, a brand new luxury multiplex cinema that serves delicious food and cocktails and fine wine. The many theaters are modern, comfortable and perfect for fine dining while enjoying the films. Upon entering, we were greeted with a flute of Prosecco to get us into the mood. Members of the staff spoke explaining the concept, followed by a VIP dinner and two films. If you love food, drink and movies, you must visit this splendid addition to New York.

 

I attended a screening of the documentary Restoring Tomorrow, by Aaron Wolf, at the American Jewish Heritage Society, 15 West 16th St. The program began with an introduction by the young filmmaker, followed by a Q & A after the screening, and a reception to close the evening. The documentary tells the story of The Wilshire Boulevard Temple, the oldest in Los Angeles, built in 1929 and its restoration, thanks to efforts of its rabbi. It wants to enhance the community and encourage modern young Jews to return to their faith. It is an inspiring story, and one learns the history of the temple over nearly 100 years old, with newsreel clips, including a scene from The Jazz Singer, where Al Jolson plays the piano and sings to his mother. It was an interesting evening,
