Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - May 14, 2016

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
May 14, 2016

 






Little Wome
n
by Mark Adamo, after the novel by Louisa May Alcott, is a fully staged production of The Mannes Opera, with The Mannes Orchestra, conducted by the Artistic Director Joseph Colaneri, at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater. It is a well done, almost professional production, with many fine singers, accompanied by a superb orchestra. The opera itself is rather dull. The lyrics are repetitious and the story is monotonous, as is the music. However, The Mannes School must be congratulated for bringing little known 
 

works to a larger audience, so that they may explore contemporary music.


 

The New York City Center Encores! presented its third and final production this season. Do I Hear a Waltz? music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Arthur Laurents, based on Laurents' play The Time of the Cuckoo, starring an excellent Melissa Errico as a single lady on vacation in Venice, where she engages in an unfortunate love affair with a married Italian man (Richard Troxell). The music by Rodgers is always wonderful, especially the melodious title song, that reverberates in one's ear on leaving the theater. It is a fitting conclusion to a splendid series, which I have enjoyed since its inception.
 

 

I attended the National Meningitis Association's Give Kids A Shot! Gala Celebration honoring Super Bowl MYP Deion Branch, Carl Buher, Michael Lafoglia and Paul Lee M.D. at the Pierre Hotel. Among the guests were Gold Medalist Nick Springer, Hockey Hall of Fame Rod Gilbert, producer/actor Joseph Sirola and mystery writer Carol Higgins Clark. It was a lovely event.

 

The 2016 Drama Desk Awards Nominees Reception was held ay the New York Marriott Marquis Astor Ballroom. It is always a wonderful party with champagne. Who says 11:00am is too early to drink champagne? Many nominees were present, including Jessica Lange (upon leaving we shared the elevator together!), Frank Langella, Michael Urie, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Laura Benanti, Steve Martin, Cynthia Erivo and many others too numerous to name.


 

Audra McDonald was honored at the New Dramatists 67th Annual Luncheon at the New York Marriott Marquis. Among the tributes offered the six time Tony winner were those by Brian Stokes Mitchell and Norm Lewis. Jim Dale introduced the multitude of guests that came to congratulate the wonderful honoree. Among them were Helen Yorke, Adrienne Warren, Sheldon Harnick, Ben Wishshaw, Michelle Williams, Pascale Armand, Robert Sella, and I could go on and on naming names. It is always a terrific affair.

 


 

I photographed three actresses, headed by Estelle Parsons, at a Meet & Greet for Out of the Mouths of Babes, by Israel Horovitz, directed by Barnet Kellman, which opens at the Cherry Lane Theatre on June 19. I eagerly await the opening night.
 

 

The Caron Treatment Centers 22nd Annual  New York City Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street is a lovely event. This year one of my favorite cabaret performers, John Pizzarelli was honored and received The Artist Award. Among the guests were two beautiful ladies, Alyz Henrich, with two titles Miss Venezuela and Miss Earth, and the Former Miss Germany Petra Levin. These two ladies can lighten up every gala!


 

Lyricist Sheldon Harnick, Fiddler on the Roof and She Loves Me on Broadway this season, arrived on a double-decker bus for the unveiling of the Harnick & Bock street sign at 53rd Street and Broadway. As one of the leading lyricists, Sheldon is being honored by a special Tony Award and a special Drama Desk Award. It is well deserved.


 

I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see the Turner's Whaling Pictures, May 10-August 7. They consist of four paintings showing the tough occupation that sailors endured in the nineteenth century capturing whales. On the wall, there is mention ofMoby Dick, Melville's masterpiece, that was published two years after Turner's death. It is an interesting exhibition.

 

My wife and I were invited to dine at A.G. Kitchen, 269 Columbus Avenue. It was a memorable dining experience. After superb cocktails, AG 1940 Sparkling Mojito with Copacabana 1940 Anejo Rum (there were 11 other specialty cocktails, that all sounded fabulous, with names like Thai Me Down and Her Name Was Lola), we ordered two delicious appetizers. My wife was in extasy with Seafood Ceviche with shrimp, lobster, tomatoes, mango and avocado, and I enjoyed A.G. Grilled Cheese with soup of the day (tomato soup). Two entrees followed. Grilled Mahi Mahi with jumbo crab, mango, pineapple & papaya salsa, caramelized onions and chimichurri, and Garcia's Seafood "Paella" with crab claws, lobster, shrimp, clams, mussels, chicken, chorizo, saffron rice and chimichurri. After that, it was almost impossible to eat dessert, but we divided a Banana Mania, consisting of banana bread, caramelized bananas and vanilla ice cream, and a coffee cubano. The menu is extensive, serving everything from burgers to exotic latino dishes at reasonable prices. The restaurant has three sections, the main dining room with banquettes, an informal, comfortable lounge and bar area, and a glass enclosed cafe area. It is open every for lunch from 11am until 11pm, and midnight on Friday and Saturday.
