Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - May 27, 2017


Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
May 27, 2017


I was born in Manchester, England. This week, a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device killing 21 innocent people and injuring many more. I am in mourning for the victims. I love Manchester. I spent fifteen happy years there. Manchester will recover from this horrible tragedy.


The 67th Annual Awards Dinner for the Outer Critics Circle 2016-17 Season took place at Sardi's. As the winners are announced beforehand, many of the honorees attend the dinner. Among those present on this occasion, I photographed Bette Midler, Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon. The three presenters were Danny Burstein, Katie Finneran and Christopher Fitzgerald.  As always, it is a pleasant affair.


Awards season never ends, so I attended Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards at 48 Lounge, which featured an open bar and delicious hors d'oeuvres. Among the honorees, I photographed Andrew RannellsMike Faist, whom I like, because he laughed at everyone of my jokes, and Barry Weissler. It was a lovely event.


The New Group presented Whirligig, by Hamish Linklater, at the Pershing Square Signature Center. It is a strange play, about a young girl (Grace Van Patten) dying in a hospital bed, apparently on an overdose of drugs. Her mother (Dolly Wells) arrives, and the history of the family is recalled. The mother and the angry alcoholic father (Norbert Leo Butz photo below) divorced many years ago. It is a very dysfunctional family, and their friends are worse. The excellent eight member cast is directed by Scott Elliott. The opening night party took place at the Green Fig's Social Drink and Food Terrace, 570 Tenth Avenue, where guests like Lois Smith, Zachary Quinto, David Rabe and John Epperson congratulated the cast.


One of my favorite actresses, honoree Judith Light (photo below), received the 17th Annual Monte Cristo Award from the Eugene O'Neill Center, at 583 Park Avenue. Executive Director Preston Whiteway posed for photographs with presenter Thomas Kail and the Honoree. Many celebrities attended the lovely affair.


Monday, May 22, was a very busy day. I covered five events. It began with a Meet & Greet for the Off-Broadway musical Attack of the Elvis Impersonators, composed by Lory Lazarus, which opens at the Lion Theatre, on Thursday June 15. I photographed the cast and creative team, and saw two selections by the talented cast. I eagerly await the opening night.


I rushed to the Eighth Annual Lilly Awards at Playwrights Horizons for photographs of the wonderful honorees like Denee Benton, Beanie Feldstein and Madison Ferris, with presenters like Daryl Roth, David Henry Hwang and Ruben Santiago-Hudson. As I tasted three types of Rose wines, I greeted Amanda Green, Stephen Schwartz and Estelle Parsons, before attending my third event.


At the NYU Skirball Center, I photographed two of my favorite ladies, hosts Kelli O'Hara and Dame Helen Mirren, for The Stuttering Association for The Young (SAY) 15th Anniversary Gala. I tasted a Sauvignon Blanc, while talking with film director, Taylor Hackford, who is married to Helen. I wanted to stay, but had to go to my fourth event.



The 62nd Annual Obie Awards at Webster Hall awarded prizes to some my favorite actors and shows of the season. A special award went to a special playwright, Paula Vogel, and among the plays honored were The Band's Visit, and Oslo. Among the guests, I chatted with the magnificent costume designer William Ivey Long, while sipping a Stella Artois beer. Unfortunately, I had to leave for my fifth and final event for the night.


I have known Michael Musto for many, many years, and he was the subject of a Roast, produced by Daniel Demello, at the Actors Temple. I arrived just in time for a reception before the show. As I sipped Tito vodka, I greeted some of the performers, who were to appear on stage like Michael RiedelOrfeh and Randy Jones. Michael arrived, dressed flamboyantly as always, and I was able to give him an envelope of contact sheets and negatives, that I had taken of him over 20 years ago, with many names from various scandals of the past. It was the end of a very busy day.


We went to Fat Pig, 120 Dyckman Street, for a food tasting. Jairo de la Paz is the charming owner of this restaurant, that serves delicious food. He presented us with a tray of brisket, sausages, and other meats. My wife drank a wonderful Mexican beer, Estrella Jalisco, and I drank my usual rum. It was a splendid evening of wonderful food and drink. I recommend Fat Pig highly. You will leave well satisfied.


Every year Joseph Sirola holds his annual Champagne & Roses party in his penthouse. As always, the food is delicious, and the champagne and red and white wines are superb. That plus the many guests makes for a delightful evening. I discovered a contact sheet and negatives from a party 20 years ago, which I gave to Joe. At that party Joe was holding on his lap the lovely Sally Kirkland. Robert Merrill was kissing Rita Gam, and everyone was having fun. It is, without doubt, one of the finest parties of the year.


American Ballet theatre (ABT) presented Whipped Cream, choreography by Alexei Ratmansky, music and libretto by Richard Strauss, set and costume design by Mark Ryden, which was first produced in 1924, without much success and disappeared. In this version, Princess Tea Flower was danced by Devon Teuscher, substituting for an injured Gillian Murphy. It is basically a fairy tale for children. The Boy (Jeffrey Cirio) overdoses on sweets in a confectioner's shop, and is rushed to the hospital. He is rescued from the hospital by Princess Praline (Skylar Brandt), who takes him to her kingdom for a happy ending. Their dancing in the second act is one of the highlights of this pleasant ballet. Another highlight is the ending of the first act, where the ensemble of whipped cream dancers, all in white, perform memorably. The music is typical of Strauss, and the set and costumes are pleasing to the eye. David LaMarche conducted the orchestra.


The New York City Ballet presented A Midsummer Night's Dream, music by Felix Mendelssohn, choreography by George Balanchine. It is one of the finest ballets in the company's repertoire. The entire company danced brilliantly, especially  Miriam Miller (Titania), Daniel Ulbricht (Oberon)  and Emily Kikta (Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons) in the first act, and Tyler Peck and Tyler Angle (Divertissement) in the second act. They all received tumultuous applause. The orchestra played the beautiful music excellently, under the baton of Andrew Litton. The Butterflies and Fairies are children/students of The School of American Ballet, and were adorable. This was magnificent performance, that was memorable, a delight to the eyes and the ears.
