Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - June 17, 2017

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
June 17, 2017

 

The 71st Tony Awards produced few surprises. I photographed the arrivals at Radio City Music Hall, and then went to the Media Room, 3 West 51st St, to photograph the winners. Oslo, Dear Evan Hansen, Hello, Dolly! and Jitney won Tony Awards, as well as Bette Midler, Ben Platt, Laurie Metcalf and Kevin Kline as Best Actors in a Musical and a Play. Rick Miramontez invited my wife and me to a fabulous Tony after party at the Carlyle Hotel, where we danced to disco music, drank fine cocktails, and chatted with Bette Midler, Glenn Close (photo below), Danny DeVito, Tommy Tune, William Ivey Long, Christine Ebersole, Cynthia Nixon and many others until 2am, when exhausted after nine hours of merriment, we went home to sleep and prepare ourselves for next year's 72nd Tony Awards!
 


The Inside Broadway 2017 Broadway Beacon Awards
 at the JW Marriott Essex House is one of the finest receptions and Award Ceremony & Entertainment of the season. The food served at the reception is of the highest quality, and the wines and alcoholic beverages are first class. I have switched to Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, and the wine could not have tasted better. As I was born in Manchester, England, and lived there during World War II, I never ate much for six years except baked beans on toast. I still have not recovered, but my dear wife loves to eat, and tells me the food at the reception was exceptional. Two of my favorite Broadway stars were honored, Kate Burton Present Laughter and Ramin Karinloo Anastasia. I surprised Kate with contacts and negatives from two events taken 31 and 27 years ago. She must have been two years old at the time! Executive Presser Michael Presser is to be congratulated for 35 years of introducing students to the theatre. Students from PS176K The Ovington School performed selections from Cats. They were adorable, and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber would have been proud of them. It was a wonderful evening.
 


 

The Irish Repertory Gala is always one of the most wonderful events of the year. It began with a concert at Town Hall Sondheim at Seven, introduced by Angela Lansbury (photo below), directed by Charlotte Moore, with, 15 superb singers, with an orchestra and chorus, conducted by John Bell.
 


 

 

Among the outstanding performances, was Maria sung by Jeremy Jordan, In Buddy's Eyes by Rebecca Luker and Send in the Clowns by Melissa Errico. A special highlight was the appearance of Len Cariou with two songs from Sondheim's musicals in which he starred. We then went to Bryant Park Grill, where we enjoyed a splendid meal, accompanied by wines and Jameson Irish Whiskey. It was the end of a perfect evening.


 

At Chez Josephine, 414 West 42nd Street, writer/producer Susan Charlotte  presented Cause Celebre Musical Brunch Series, Love and the Other Woman, starring Penny Fuller and Carole Shelley, accompanied at the piano by Jon Weber. Billy Goldenberg and Louise Lasser were in the audience. It is always a lovely event, with great food and drink. It is always a stimulating afternoon, with wonderful talent, excellent service, in one of the finest restaurants in New York City.


 

Off-Broadway, Attack of the Elvis Impersonators, book, music and lyrics by Lory Lazarus, at the Lion Theatre in Theatre Row, is a loud, highly amplified Rock musical in a tiny theater. A 14 member cast, directed by Don Stephenson, tell the convoluted story of a Rock Star, who wants to re-imagine himself as Elvis Presley. The cast run up and down the aisles, on and off the stage, yelling and screaming, as I imagine fanatics of Rock and Roll do at concerts. At 85 years of age, I have never attended a Rock concert, which I believe has preserved my sanity and my hearing. If you attend this musical, earplugs are recommended.


 

I injured my right foot and was unable to walk well. Unfortunately, I had to cancel two Off-Broadway shows, and three opening night parties. That plus a photo op and a Breakfast at Bloom's Tavern in honor of Ulysses by James Joyce makes this column smaller. I am recuperating, but I advise everyone never to fall down. The sidewalk is hard.


 

My wife, who loves ballet, took my ticket to the American Ballet Theatre (ABT) production of Swan Lake, choreography by Kevin McKenzie, music by Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky, at the Metropolitan Opera House. It is, probably, the most popular ballet in the world, and ABT's production is superb, with Hee Seo starring as Odette-Odile. I was sorry to miss it..
