Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben June 30, 2018

 

 

Aubrey Reuben

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

June 30, 2018


Little Rock,
 written and directed by Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, at Loreto Theater at Sheen Center, is a play that tells the story of the Little Rock Crisis of 1957, when nine black students were integrated into the white Little Rock Central  High School. It is told with projections of the photos taken at the time. The excellent nine member cast act and sing beautifully. It is an inspiring story. We previously attended the wonderful opening night party at Capitale on June14.

A revival of Carmen Jones, by Oscar Hammerstein II, music by George Bizet, at the Classic Stage Company, featured a glorious singing cast headed by an outstanding Anika Noni Rose in the title role. The entire cast sang and moved well under the direction of John Doyle with choreography by Bill T. Jones. The music is taken from the opera Carmen and it is updated to World War II in a parachute factory with an all black cast. The toreador is now a boxer, a sonorous David Aron Danane, Cindy Lou (Micaela) is Lindsay Roberts, and sang magnificently, and Joe (Don Jose) Clifton Duncan is the soldier in love with Carmen is. The musicians played the score excellently, under the direction of Shelton Becton. It was a delight for the ears from beginning to end.
 

One of the delightful events of the Awards Season is Inside Broadway's 2018 Broadway Beacon Awards at JW Marriott Essex House, 160 Central Park South. This year Ethan Slater (photo below) was honored with Alexandra Kambouris Alberstadt, Kenneth G. Alberstadt and Orin Wolf.




There is always a delicious reception with fine food, wine and cocktails before the Award Ceremony, where adorable children from PS 97 K performed songs from Broadway shows, and performers from Beautiful: The Carole King Musical also sang. It was a marvelous evening.
 

Three terrific singers head the cast, Melissa Errico, Stephen Bogardus (photo below) and John Cudia, of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, music by Burton Lane, book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner, adapted and directed by Charlotte Moore, at the Irish Repertory Theatre. The music is glorious, the songs are wonderful and the eleven member cast perform excellently. Although the plot is bizarre, one is carried away by the exceptional performances, especially by the three leads mentioned above. I had a marvelous night celebrating with the cast at Crompton Ale House, 159 West 26th St, at the opening night party.
 

There is not a brighter night at the ballet than seeing Don Quixote, choreography by Marius Petipa and Alexander Gorsky, staged by Kevin McKenzie and Susan Jones, music by Ludwig Minkus, a production of American Ballet Theatre (ABT) at the Metropolitan Opera House. It has magnificent dancing, sparking music and is very funny. What more can you want? Hee Seo (Kitri) was the highlight, with her impeccable performance. James Whiteside (Basil) supported her excellently. Alexandre Hammoudi was a comic Gamache and Thomas Forster a fine Espada. In Act II, Aaron Scott gave a brilliant, athletic performance as a Gypsy leader with Betsy McBride as his sexy lady. In the Dream scene, Christine Shevchenko (Queen of the Dryads) and Anabel Katsnelson (Amour) were outstanding
