Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben March 17, 2018

 

 

Aubrey Reuben

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

March 17, 2018

Escape to Margaritaville, book by Creg Garcia and Mike O'Malley, music and lyrics by Jimmy Buffett, at the Marquis Theatre, is a musical about two young ladies, who go on a week's vacation to a Caribbean Island. One (Lisa Howard) is about to be married. The other (Alison Luff) is tied to her work. Both have a romantic affair on this tropical island, one with a genial bartender (Eric Petersen) and  the workaholic with a handsome guitar playing song writer (Paul Alexander Nolan) (photo of the cast below).The song are quite popular and pleasant to listen to. Cheeseburger in Paradise is one title, and they were served at the party. Buffett's fans adore his songs, and snap their fingers and wave their hands in recognition. The choreography by Kelly Devine is excellent, with pretty chorus girls and athletic young men. Christopher Ashley directed the cheerful cast, who sang and danced very well. The book is sophomoric and mindless, but the audience is encouraged to drink margaritas before and during the intermission. The result is an enjoyable evening. Among the many opening night guests was one lady I have known since 1989, where the only photo of her that I took of her 18 months previously at the Hard Rock Cafe existed at the New York Post and was bought all around the world and earned me a great sum of money. It was Donald Trump's beautiful Ex-Second Wife Marla Maples (photo below). She posed for me exclusively during the intermission. People who enjoy entertainment as a sermon should attend church and those who want an  education should attend a school. I was brought up in Manchester, England, during World War II, and every  Saturday night, my father took me to the Music Halls.  I am eternally grateful to him. Even being bombed by the Germans throughout 1940, I survived happily and optimistic. The opening night party took place at Pier 60 at Chelsea Piers. It was the best party that I have attended this season. The food and drink were excellent, and to Jimmy Buffett, my wife and I thank you for a delightful evening!


Three Wise Guy
s, by Scott Alan Evans & Jeffrey Couchman, is a TACT production at Theatre Row. It is based on two stories by Damon Runyon. The seven member cast, directed by  Scott Alan Evans, capture the language and the spirit of Runyon, and the short 80-minute play is quite amusing. After 25 years, this is TACT's final play. It leaves a worthy legacy of reclaiming fine neglected plays. It will be missed.
 

Three Small Irish Masterpieces is a production of The Irish Repertory Theatre. The Pot of Broth, by William Butler Yeats in collaboration with Lady Gregory, is humorous. Riders to the Moon, by John  Millington Synge, is tragic, and The Rising of the Moon, by Lady Gregory, is a fascinating mystery.



All three short one act plays are magnificently acted by an excellent six member cast, directed by Charlotte Moore. We congratulated the cast and director at a delightful opening night party in the Gallery of the theater after a most entertaining night theatrical experience.


Later Life
, by A.R. Gurney, is a Keen Company production at the Clurman Theatre. At a party, a man and a woman meet after many years, when both were single. That one night was lovingly remembered by the lady. The man tries to recall the incident. Their new encounter is interrupted ad nauseam by a variety of irritating guests, played by two other actors. The four member cast is directed by Jonathan Silverstein. The playwright has written many fine plays,. Unfortunately, this 80-minute dull effort is not one of them. An opening night party was held in the lounge on the second floor at Theatre Row.


MoMA presented El Indio: The films of Emilio Fernandez, March 1-13Salon Mexico, by Emilio Fernandez, Mexico, 1948, is another tedious melodrama, about a woman, who works in a sleazy dance hall to earn money to support her younger sister to receive an education in a high-class boarding school. She dances with a brutal gangster, who is in love with her and beats her in repeated scenes, which are not pleasant to watch. The convoluted story ends tragically.


 

Broadway Belts for PFF, at Edison Ballroom, 240 West 47th St, was a lovely affair, with Julie Halston as the Emcee. Among the many guests and performers was Robert Creighton.
 

 

A Toast to the Artist honored librettist and director Dick Scanlan at the Transport Group Gala at the Current at Chelsea Piers at Pier 59 . It was a lovely affair with many guests like Michael Mayer and performers.

 

The League of Professional Theatre Women presented the Theatre Women Awards at the Timescenter, 242 West 41st St, with an Awards Ceremony and Champagne Toast. As always, it was a wonderful event. Among the six worthy winners, actress Phylicia Rashad received the Lifetime Achievement Award and Linda Winer received the LPTW Special Award. Among the presenters were NY1 Roma Torre and actress Celia Keenan-Bolger. The host was Florencia Lozano. After the ceremony over glasses of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, we chatted with the awardees, presenters, and the many, many guests, who support this marvelous organization, which works for women to succeed in the theatre community. It was a delightful, thoughtful and intelligent evening. I congratulated Mahayana Landowne and Ludovica Villar-Hauser, the Co-VPs of Programming.
