Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben March 11, 2017

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

March 11, 2017



Off-Broadway, Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex and my Mother, written and performed by Jamie Brickhouse, directed by David Drake, presented by the 2017 Frigid Festival at the Kraine Theater, is a 60-minute one-man show, in which the performer relates his life, dominated by his mother, and his addiction to booze and sex. It is an honest account, which might have ended tragically. He is now sober, and has a glorious relationship. It is a funny and charming performance. We celebrated his opening night at the Rumpus Room, 249 Eldridge Street, where I photographed Jamie, and met many of his admirers, while toasting him at an open bar with delicious hors d'oeuvres in a private section of the club, owned by Gabriel Levy, who is also the DJ. It was a grand party.


C.S. Lewis, On Stage The Most Reluctant Convert, written and performed by Max McLean, at the Acorn Theatre, Theatre Row, is a production of FPA Fellowship for Performing Arts. It is an 80-minute one-man show about the Oxford University philosopher in 1950. It takes place in his study in Magdalen College, where he smokes his pipe, drinks wine and tells the story of his life up to that point. Although a Christian, he struggled with his faith and became an Atheist. He returned to his faith in 1950. The scenic design by Kelly James Tighe recreates the study perfectly, and the projections of Rocco DiSanti of Oxford are quite lovely. It is co-directed by Ken Denison and McLean.


On the Exhale, by Martin Zimmerman, is a 60-minute one woman show starring Marin Ireland a fine actress, directed by Leigh Silverman, on a bare stage, at the Black Box Theatre, at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. She is an unidentified mother of a child killed by gun violence. For an hour we listen to her grief and her attraction to an assault weapon. There has been a proliferation of one person shows.  I attended four in ten days. Opening night parties at two of them made those two tolerable.


The Gravedigger's Lullaby, by Jeff Talbott, at the Beckett Theatre, Theater Row, opens on Sunday March 12. My review will appear in my next column.



TADA! Youth Theater Annual Gala
 honored Award-winning composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz at Tribeca 360, 10 Desbrosses Street. Jordan Peele was the host and Ben Vereen was the surprise guest. They were hilarious. Among the guests were Telly Leung and Jason Robert Brown. It was a lovely event, with delicious food and an open bar.


The 39th Annual Susan Smith Blackburn Prize Ceremony is a wonderful event. At Playwrights Horizons, it began with a reception, where we mingled with the finalists, like the winner Clare Barron, (photo below) Penelope Skinner, Charley Miles, and other famous women playwrights like Lynn Nottage, Annie Baker, actors like Lynn Cohen, the judges like Maria Aberg, who is Swedish. We then went to the second floor theater, where the winner was announced, and many speakers like Tim Sanford, Evan Cabnet and others spoke about the importance of this prize in furthering the careers of women playwrights. It was a memorable evening.


I attended the Margo Manhattan Cocktail Reception previewing her jewelry collection of rock 'n' roll chic designs exclusively for HSN. It took place in Residence 7, an elegant 6.5 million dollar apartment at 199 Mott Street. We congratulated Margo Manhattan, who is a celebrity jewelry designer, who displays her wonderful jewelry on HSN live TV. We drank vodka and bourbon cocktails, while eating delicious hors d'oeuvres. It was a grand event.


I attended a cocktail reception for China Now: New Literati Art, at ART100, 555 West 25th St, where I met the three directors of the gallery including Michelle Y. Loh, and two of the seven artists, Li Jin and Zheng Chongbin, whose works were on display at the gallery. Their artwork is impressive. INK Studio, the Beijing-based art gallery arranged the group exhibition. The guests I met were charming, and the gallery is a fine space. I look forward to visiting it again. 


I attended a wonderful party at a private apartment at 55 Central Park West for a fundraiser for Bo Dietl as Candidate for Mayor of New York City. Among the many celebrities I chatted with Savion Glover and photographed Vincent Pastore, and reminded Bo that the only time I dined at Rao's was years ago at his Thursday night's table. When he is Mayor, I hope he will invite me again. Meanwhile, we dined on delicious Italian food provided by Nino Selimaj, the owner of Nino's Tuscany, 117 West 58th St, and his charming wife Sylvia gave me a Tiramisu to take home for my wife. We toasted the future Mayor with Donegal Irish whiskey, Georgi Vodka and Prosecco. It was a marvelous party.
