Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben May 19, 2018

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

May 19, 2018


New York City Center Encores! at 25 presented Me and My Girl, book and lyrics, L. Arthur Rose and Douglas Furber, music by Noel Gay. It is a bubbly, entertaining, silly musical, brilliantly directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle. The cast was excellent, singing and dancing happily, as they closed the first act with The Lambeth Walk, with some of them dancing in the aisles. The second act opened with a lovely The Sun Has Got His Hat On, and towards the finale a memorable Leaning on a Lamp-Post, which was one of the most popular songs on the wireless (radio to Americans) during World War II in England, where I was born and bred in Manchester. I sang it all through the war, adding a last line Match in a Gas Tank,  Boom, Boom. It was a joyous production with an energetic Christian Borle in the lead as a Cockney from London suddenly becoming a posh duke. Three ladies deserve special mention, Laura Michelle Kelly, Lisa O'Hare, both marvelous singers and dancers, and a very funny Harriet Harris. I always enjoy Encores!, but this production was extra special.

Four galas in one night. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it! The first one was The Actors Fund's Annual Gala at the Marriott Marquis, 1535 Broadway, honoring Warren Beatty, Kenny Leon, Chita Rivera and Uma Thurman. Among the many guests were Andrew Garfield and Annette Benning (photo below with Warren). It is always a wonderful affair.


The second was the Vineyard Theatre's 2018 Gala at Edison Ballroom, 240West 47th St, honoring Michael Mayer, who posed with Tony Kushner (photo below). Also among the many guests were Kathleen Chalfant and her husband Henry. Another wonderful affair!


The third was at The Boathouse in Central Park for the Urban Stages 2018 Gala, honoring Jim Dale, with Simon Jones presenting him with a Lifetime Achievement Award.


Finally to the Mutual of America, 320 Park Avenue, 35th Floor, for The Origin Theatre Company's Annual Gala, honoring Ed and Brigid Kenney with the Community Leaders Award, and Phil Burke with the Artistic Leader Award. The food served was delicious, and the fine wines and cocktails made a final gala the end of a splendid evening!


Parsons Dance at the Joyce Theater was a special occasion, with Stephen Schwartz being honored. His song Stranger in the Rain was performed by two dancers, and sung by Shosahana Bean, with choreography by David Parsons and with Stephen accompanying them at the piano. The other four dance pieces were Microburst, music by Avirodh Sharma playing a tabla with four dancers, Reflections danced by Abby Silva Gavezzoli, a magnificent Caught, danced by Zoey Anderson, and concluded with Ma Maison, choreography by Trey McIntyre, music by Preservation Jazz Band, with eight dancers of the company.

The Parsons Dance's Annual Gala followed the performance at La Sirena at the Maritime Hotel with all the performers and the honoree Stephen, and guests Michael Wilson, Alan Cumming, Phil Chan and Georgina Pazcoguin. It was a lovely event.

The 2017 winner of Virtuosos, a classical music talent show, Hungarian  soprano Reka Kristof made her debut at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, with baritone Aneas Humm and Gergely Boganyi at the piano. They performed a selection of songs by many composers, most solos, and occasionally duets, and two solos at the piano, named Boganyi, one of the most innovative grand piano retrofits in the last 150 years. It was impressive performance. Both singers have fine voices, and Don Giovanni Paraphrase, by Franz Liszt was the highlight of the evening by Gergely. He is a very talented pianist. The audience granted the three artists a thunderous ovation.

Robbins 100 continued at the New York City Ballet with three ballets. It began with Opus 19/The Dreamer, music by Sergei Prokofiev, with two fine performances by the leading couple, Sterling Hyltin and Taylor Stanley. It continued with Dances at a Gathering, music by Frederic Chopin, with ten of the finest members of the company, and concluded with Glass Pieces, music by Philip Glass, with the terrific Maria Kowroski and Russell Janzen in the second part Facades. The music is hypnotic. Andrews Sill conducted the orchestra. The four programs that I attended are a tribute to a magnificent choreographer.


I attended a rehearsal of Half Time, which opens at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Milburn, New Jersey on June 12th. We saw three selections from the musical, and took a photograph of the cast and creative team. It was quite delightful.

American Ballet Theatre presented Giselle, music by Adolphe Adam, perhaps one of the most famous ballets, first performed in Paris in 1841. The melodious music was a delight for one's ears, and the orchestra played it beautifully, under the baton of David LaMarche. The dancing was superb by the leading soloists and the ensemble. Highlights of the performance were the marvelous dancing of Stella Abrera in the title role, Cory Stearns as Count Albrecht, the Peasant Pas de Deux by Cassandra Trenary and Joseph Gorak, and the impressive debut in the second act of Katherine Williams as Myrta, the queen of the wilis. It was another one of the memorable nights at the ballet.


The 84th Annual Drama League Awards was held at the Marriott Marquis Times Square. It is always a marvelous event with numerous celebrities from the theatre. This years winners were Glenda Jackson,Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, The Band Visit, My Fair Lady and Angels in America, and special  awards to Idina Menzel and Casey Nicholaw.
