Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - January 9, 2016


 

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
January 9, 2016

 
After a long wait to be invited to review Al Pacino before it closes in three weeks, the question is was it worth the wait? Sadly, the answer is no. China Doll, by David Mamet, directed by Pam MacKinnon, at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, was written especially for its star, Al Pacino. He plays a devious wealthy businessman, who buys a private jet plane, which is stranded in Canada. It is a two character play. The other cast member is Christopher Denham, who portrays his personal assistant. Pacino spends most of the two hour play on the phone, talking to different people. If you have had the misfortune to be stuck on a bus, while a loudmouth is talking on his cellphone, you can imagine how annoying and irritating it is. I would like to propose that phones be banished from the stage. To give the star credit, it is a nonstop talkathon, and since he is a famous movie star, his fans enjoy every minute, seeing him in the flesh. However, even the four paid customers in the fourth row center orchestra fled the theater at intermission, as did the pair behind me in the sixth row. The packed house gave the star a standing ovation at the conclusion. He deserved it for still being able to survive this ridiculous place
I was invited to photograph the cast and creative team of Smokefall, by Noah Haidle, starring Zachary Quinto and Robin Tunney. It is a MCC production opening on February 22. As I have attended every opening night of their stimulating productions, I do not plan to miss this one. Also, the opening night party is always fun.

 
Actors like Nathan Lane, theater critics like Michael Sommers, press agents like Pete Sanders, theater writers like Michael Riedel and theater photographers like me gathered on Sunday, January 3, to bid farewell to Angus McIndoe, 238 West 44th St, after fifteen years as one of the most popular restaurants in the theater district. A rent increase by the landlord added the finishing touch to a restaurant that had been the host to all the celebrities appearing on Broadway. I have cherished memories since its opening of theater parties, record launches, and even my first attendance at a gay wedding when my colleague at Playbill Harry Haun married Charles Nelson. Angus McIndoe was the charming owner, who welcomed everyone to his place, like a home for all Broadway fans. He and the restaurant will be sorely missed.
