Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - July 14, 2018


Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
July 14, 2018


Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley hosted Concert for America: Your Kids, Our Kids in the Great Hall, Cooper Union. Among the singers were Idina Menzel, Audra McDonald, Chita Rivera (photo below with Mitchell and his wife) and her daughter Lisa Mordente, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Patrick Wilson. Among the speakers were Tina Fey, Andrea Martin, and from organizations that support helping reunite children with their parents who were separated at the southern border for crossing illegally into the United States. I photographed some of the entertainers backstage in the Green Room after the concert.

Vitaly: An evening of Wonders
, created and starring Vitaly Beckman, at the Westside Theatre, is  a delightful program of magic tricks, performed by a charming, pleasant young man, who makes objects move, sketches on a large pad and makes his drawings move, does card tricks and is fun company. After the performance, he poses for photos with the happy children that attend his show. We met him at his opening night party at The Palm, 250 West 50th St. His proud parents came from Israel to congratulate him. We had a lovely time.

Whipped Cream
, choreography by Alexei Ratmansky, music and libretto by Richard Strauss, a production of American Ballet Theatre (ABT) at the Metropolitan Opera House is a present for children of all ages. The set and costume design by Mark Ryden is a joy for all fans who love fairy tales. It is about a Boy (Jeffrey Cirio) who, at a confectioner's shop, overdoses on whipped cream and becomes ill. He is placed in a hospital, and escapes with the help of Princess Praline (Misty Copland). It is a colorful ballet with brilliant dancing by the entire cast. The two leads along with Hee Seo as Princess Tea Flower and Cory Stearns as Prince Coffee are outstanding, The orchestra, under the baton of Charles Barker, played the score wonderfully. It closed the eight week season on a triumphal note.

Cause Celebre: Musical Brunch Series
 is a program created by Susan Charlotte at Chez Josephine, 414 West 42nd St. It is always a delightful afternoon with wonderful food, lovely drinks and fine performances. Sketches and Songs were performed by Larry Pine and Carole Shelley, with Michael Citriniti, and performed at the piano by Eric Yves Garcia and Jon Weber. Susan invited some of her guests to her penthouse after the brunch to enjoy a spectacular view of the city from her terrace.

Mary Page Marlowe, by Tracy Letts, at 2ndstage, is a 90-minute intermission-less play, about the woman named in the title. In a series of brief scenes, six actresses play the woman at various stages in her life. It is a convoluted story switching back and forth in time. Her life is a mess. She is an alcoholic, a sex maniac, a jailbird, marries frequently, and her two children are unhappy. The acting by a large company by Off-Broadway standards, directed by Lila Neugebauer, is quite good. The play is not.

Steven Minichiello presented a magnificent memorial for Liliane Montevecchi at Gotham Hall. The coffin was surrounded by glorious bouquets of flowers and exquisite candles. Six musicians played various selections. Four ballet dancers performed and two tango dancers appeared in three dances. Two beautiful models appeared in Follies Bergere outfits a la Liliane. Film clips of Liliane performing were screened and photos of her were displayed throughout the large hall. Steven introduced many of her dearest friends, who told humorous anecdotes about the talented actress. Among them were Arlene Dahl, Marc Rosen, David Staller, Maury Yeston, Donna McKechnie, who also sang, and Tommy Tune who directed Liliane in her Tony Winning performance in Nine in 1982. He also directed her in her Tony Nominated performance in Grand Hotel. The final speaker was Claudio Soprani, her companion in her last 30 years. It was a wonderful memorial, closing with a champagne reception, where I chatted with Karen Akers, Lee Roy Reams and Jamie de Roy among many others. Steven is to be congratulated for a marvelous afternoon, that Liliane would have enjoyed.



Get the Boat,  written and starring Eavan Brennan and Sioban Donnellan at Soho Playhouse, is about two young women, who meet on a boat from Ireland to England, where they will get an abortion. In those days, it was illegal in Ireland. The two fine actresses, directed by Ruth Smith, tell each other their tragic stories. In a talk-back afterwards, they explain why they wrote the play and why they became activists for women's rights in Ireland, which recently passed a referendum allowing abortion. The second short play is Innit, written, starring and directed by Colette Forde, about a young high school girl in Manchester, England. (My home town). In a thick accent, which borders on unintelligible, she relates her miserable life, while wanting to grow up to be a pop singer. She is uneducated, vulgar and cannot utter one sentence without using profanity. She is an unpleasant character.

The Saintliness of Margery Kempe, by John Wulp, at The Duke on 42nd Street, is about the life of the of the 14th century English mystic. The nine member cast, headed by a remarkable Andrus Nichols (photo belowwith O'Connell) as the title character, is directed expertly by Austin Pendleton. The story reveals that Kempe left her husband (Jason O'Connell) and six children to live her own life. It is a fascinating story, and in this production it is very funny. At the opening night party at Sardis, we congratulated the playwright, director and the splendid actors.

Resident Magazine held a reception for Ryan Serhant, who is featured on the July cover. It took place in an elegant townhouse, 253 West 18th Street, with delicious hors d'oeuvres served from La Pulperia with fine Spanish Rioja wines. It was a most enjoyable evening.
