Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben March 18, 2017

 

 

Aubrey Reuben

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

March 18, 2017

 
 
 


 

On Broadway, The Price, by Arthur Miller, at the American Airlines Theatre, is a revival by the Roundabout Theatre Company, with a fine four member cast, directed by Terry Kinney. A policeman (Mark Ruffalo) and his wife (Jessica Hecht) await the arrival of an appraiser (Danny DeVito) to sell their dead father's possessions. The wealthy estranged brother (Tony Shalhoub) unexpectedly arrives, and we see the emotions between the two brothers erupt, and the resentment between them is revealed. It is also a serious play, but DeVito adds a well needed humor to the production. The set design by Derek McLane captures the the atmosphere of a shabby apartment perfectly. 


 

Come From Away, book, music and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, is a musical about 7,000 air line passengers, stranded in Gander, Newfoundland, on 9/11 after the terrorist attack on New York City. They remained there for  five days. The tiny population of Gander and nearby towns rose to the occasion giving them food and shelter. The highlight late in the show is a party where everyone sings and dances. The talented twelve member cast, playing multiple roles, and the terrific eight musicians, directed by Christophe Ashley, made the show memorable. The night I saw the musical, the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau attended and introduced the show, praising the Canadian people and the friendship that exists between Canada and the United States. The former Prime Minister Jean Chretien was also present, as was Ivanka Trump, Irene Sankoff and David Hein, all with whom I chatted and photographed, plus 125 Ambassadors to the United Nations. It was a wonderful evening at the theater.


 

Off-Broadway, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, by Stephen Sondheim, at the Barrow Street Theatre, is a Tooting Arts Club production. The theater is turned into a pie shop in this unique presentation of this wonderful musical. The eight member cast is outstanding, with a brilliant Jeremy Secomb as the barber and a marvelous Siobhan McCarthy as Mrs. Lovett, directed by Bill Buckhurst. The music is played by three talented musicians. The audience is invited to come one hour early to sample a chicken or vegetable pie with a drink. It is a most pleasant theatrical experience.


 

The Gravedigger's Lullaby, by Jeff Talbott, at the Beckett Theatre, Theater Row, a production of TACT, The Actors Theatre Company, is a well acted play, featuring four actors, Jeremy Beck, Ted Koch, Todd Lawson and KK Moggie, directed by Jenn Thompson. The theme is the miserable life of a gravedigger, who lives with his wife and baby in a dilapidated shack. When suddenly he receives an offer for a better job, his hopes raise. It is a very strong play, with astonishing physical display by three of the four actors.
 


 

 

Linda, by Penelope Skinner, at the Manhattan Theatre Club, features the magnificent Janie Dee in the title role as a hard driving advertising executive, who is so focused on her career, that she neglects her two daughters and husband. When a younger girl replaces her on a campaign launch of a new product, her career begin to decline to tragic effect. The eight member cast, directed by Lynne Meadow, is superb, and the scenic design on a revolving stage by Walt Spangler deserves a special ovation. I enjoyed every minute of this riveting production.
 


 

 

 







 

The Emperor Jones, by Eugene O'Neill, is a production of the Irish Repertory Company. Obi Abili stars in the title role, and gives a splendid performance, directed expertly by Ciaran O'Reilly. He rules a Caribbean island and is overthrown. When he tries to escape, tragedy ensues.The other six members of the cast contribute to the success of the play, choreographed by Barry McNabb. The puppet & mask design by Bob Flanagan was impressive. We celebrated at the opening night party at Jake's Saloon, 202 9th Avenue, with Kate Burton, Tony and Gen Walton and John Douglas Thompson (photo below), who starred and was superb in the previous production by the company in 2009.

 

 

The Truffles: Jazz, Murder & Dinner Theater, at Swing 46: Jazz & Supper Club, is a two hour immersive play, created by Sonia Carrion, book by T. Adamson, music & lyrics by Jenni Lark & Hal Galardi, with delicious food and drink, while watching seven attractive actors, directed by Billy Manton, perform a murder mystery at the 10th Annual Donati Gala & Truffle Auction. The menu consists of an appetizer with URBANI Truffles, a choice of steak, salmon, chicken or pasta with truffle essence added if you wish, and a chocolate pudding dessert. You may select any drink you prefer to accompany the meal. It is a perfect way to celebrate birthdays, bachelorettes, office outings, corporate parties and special events. I promise you that you will leave well satisfied and happy.

 


Brasserie 8 1/2
, in the Solow Building, 9 West 57th Street, is an elegant restaurant, with exquisite food. One enters down a sweeping staircase a la Sunset Boulevard, and one is immediately in a spacious dining room with colorful French paintings. My wife and I enjoyed a magnificent lunch. We toasted each other with a Moet & Chandon glass of champagne for my wife and a glass of Sancerre for me. As appetizers, my wife had Yellowfin Tuna Tartare, Nicoise Olives, Capers, Cucumbers and I Onion Soup Gratinee, Emmenthaler, Gruyere Cheese and a glass of red wine, a Cote de Rhone. Our entrees were Atlantic Salmon, Braised Escarole, Ricotta Gnocchi, Portobello Mushroom, and Steak Frites, Dry Aged Black Angus Sirloin with a glass of Bordeaux red for each of us. We finished our lunch with two desserts, Classic  Creme Caramel and Warm Molten Chocolate Cake and a cappuccino with a glass of Fra Angelico for my wife and a Calvados for me. The wine list is extensive. Open daily Sunday 11am-9pm, Monday - Friday 11:30am-10pm, Saturday 5pm-10pm, I heartily recommend this marvelous French restaurant, which serves glorious food that you will always remember.

 

I went to a photo op for Indecent, by Paula Vogel, directed by Rebecca Taichman.The producers are Daryl Roth, Elizabeth McCann and Cody Lassen. I photographed them, plus the ten member cast. It opens on Tuesday April 18 at the Cort Theatre. I eagerly await opening night.


 

I attended the Williamstown Theatre Festival Gala, at Tao Downtown, 369 West 16th St. I photographed  Jessica Hecht, Becky Ann Baker, (photo below), Dylan Baker, Laila Robins and Martyna Majok at the cocktail reception, followed by a dinner and entertainment. It was a glorious event.


The Jewish Museum, 1109 Fifth Avenue ant 92nd Street, presented a press preview for two exhibitions, The Arcades: Contemporary Art of Walter Benjamin March 17 - August 6, 2017and Charlemagne Palestine's Bear Mitzvah in Meshugaland, March 17 - August 6, 2017. The latter is a tribute to teddy bears, made famous and named after President Teddy Roosevelt. The many iconic toys will delight children especially. The first exhibition is a meditation on Parisian city life by a German Jewish Philosopher, Walter Benjamin, which he began in 1927 with many of the famous vaulted shopping passages, (arcades), being represented, and then proceeding to modern artworks . Both exhibitions are worth  a visit.
