Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben June 9, 2018

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

June 9, 2018


The 2018 Drama Desk Awards were presented at a ceremony at Town Hall hosted by Michael Urie. There were no surprises. Outstanding Musical was SpongBob SquarePants and Play was Admissions. Among the winning actors in a play were Andrew Garfield and Glenda Jackson and in a musical Ethan Slater and Jessie Mueller. At the after-party at the Marriott Marquis, I congratulated Lindsay Mendez, who won Outstanding Actress in a Musical, and performed with Alexander Gemignani in the ceremony, one of the highlights of the night. I also congratulated Karen Ziemba, who also performed, and is one of my favorite actresses in a musical. It was a splendid night among talented artists.

The 74th Theatre World Awards Ceremony was held at Circle in the Square. The winners included Ethan Slater, Harry Hadden-Paton and Victor Garber, who received a Lifetime Achievement Award. Among the presenters were Glenda Jackson, Bernadette Peters, and Lea Salonga. Phillip Boykin was one of the performers, and Peter Filichia was the host. President Dale Badway spoke near the end to invite everyone to the Copacabana for a party. It is always a festive occasion.

The Irish Repertory Company 2018 Gala Performance
 at Town Hall was a superb production Alan Jay Lerner: A Centennial Celebration, directed by Charlotte Moore. It featured a magnificent cast, a large chorus and a full orchestra, directed by John Bell. The cast included Jeremy Irons, Melissa Errico, James Barbour, Stephen Bogardus, John Cudia, John Cullum, Angela Grovey, Donna Kane, Maryann Plunkett and David Staller. They performed a wonderful selection of the lyricist's Broadway and film musicals. Everyone was a highlight, but mention must be made of Remarks and Reminiscences by 88-year-old John Cullum, seated on a bench with Charlotte Moore, telling us about his first small role in Camelot, and being the understudy for Richard Burton and Roddy McDowall. He sang two songs, and his voice was glorious. He is a Broadway treasure! Also, Jeremy Irons sang I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face, from My Fair Lady, and he equaled the stunning performance that Rex Harrison delivered in the original musical. We celebrated the marvelous evening at Bryant Park Grill with a delicious dinner, lubricated with fine wine and Jameson Irish Whiskey. Robert Lindsay, who was on Broadway in Me and My Gal, in 1986 with Maryann Plunkett, (photo below) was there, and we reminisced about their terrific performance, and we sang Leaning on a Lamp-post together. The end of a perfect night!

American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented Harlequinade, choreography by Marius Petipa, staging and additional choreography by Alexei Ratmansky, music by Riccardo Drigo. To celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Petipa' birthday, Ratmansky created this delightful production. It is based on commedia dell'arte, the the Italian comedy entertainment that was popular during the 16th to 18th century in Europe.

They are stock characters, and in this ballet very amusing. Jeffrey Cirio (Harlelequin) and Sarah Lane(Columbine) danced brilliantly, especially in the second act. Stella Abrera (Pierrette) equally so. The children from ABT Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School were well disciplined and danced marvelously in the second act. The scenery and costumes by Robert Perdziola, and the sparking music played by the orchestra under the baton of David LaMarche, made it a lovely night to remember.


I photographed the Vassar & New York Stage and Film's 34th Powerhouse Season at a press Meet and Greet launch with the cast and creative teams for this summer's shows. It sounds wonderful. Unfortunately, it takes place at Vassar College, and I only attend theatre when it takes place in Manhattan.

Mont Blanc,
 344 West 52nd St, celebrated its first year anniversary with an invitation  to enjoy fine wine, beer and delicious hors d'oeuvres at a reception in the splendid restaurant. Among the guests, I chatted with two Broadway actors Diane Findlay and Walter Willison, costume designer Mitchell Bloom for the Metropolitan Opera, Broadway and film and Broadway and Off- Broadway producer Douglas Denhoff. It was a festive occasion.

I photographed Melissa Benoist (Supergirl) at a press event before her Broadway debut this summer in Beautiful-The Carole King Musical at the Stephen Sondheim Theater. She played and sang one song at the piano. She sounds very good and looks beautiful!

The American Theatre Wing celebrated the publication of a magnificent coffee table book The American Theatre Wing, An Oral History: 100 Years, 100 Voices, 100 Million Miracles at a luncheon at Barbetta Restaurant, 321 West 46th St, followed by a Q & A with CEO & President Heather Hitchens, the book writer Patrick Pacheco moderated by Julie James. It was a wonderful program beginning with a champagne reception and photo op in the courtyard, followed by a delicious luncheon in the elegant dining room, with an appetizer, a choice from three succulent entrees, followed by a choice from three mouth watering desserts, served with fine white and red Italian wines. Among the many guests were Lois Smith, Veanne Cox, (the two actresses in photo below), Renee Fleming, Alexander Gemignani, Pia Lindstrom, William Ivey Long, Joe Benincasa, Ari'el Stachel with his proud father Aaron, and many more too numerous to mention. Barbetta is the oldest Italian restaurant in New York and still owned by its founding family. It opened in 1906 by Sebastian Maioglio, and now owned by his daughter Laura Maioglio, located in the  1874 and 1881 Maioglio-Astor Townhouses. It was, as Cole Porter would say, a swell party!
