Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - May 28, 2016

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
May 28, 2016

 






 

The 66th Annual Outer Critics Circle Theatre Awards for the 2015-2016 Season were presented at Sardi's Restaurant. Among the winners, who were present to receive their awards, were Frank Langella, Jessica Lange, Danny Burstein, Cynthia Erivo, Steve Martin, Judith Light, Pascale Armand, Jane Krakowski, Michael Shannon, Christopher Fitzgerald, Sergio Trujillo and David Rockwell. Among the presenters were Marlo Thomas, Alex Sharp, Sheldon Harnick, who was surprised with a special award, and Victoria Clark. It was a pleasant event.


 

On Broadway, Paramour, at the Lyric Theatre, is a spectacular production as Cirque de Soleil. To try to turn it into a Broadway show, with three unattractive leading characters and a ridiculous story, it fails. If you attend, just sit back and enjoy the flying, the floating, juggling, and believe you at the circus.


 

I was invited to see School of Rock at the Winter Garden again. My wife had missed the opening night, because she was in China. I enjoyed it the first time, and I was equally delighted to watch the show again. The talented children steal the show. 
 


 

Maybe This Is It!, is a one man show, written, designed and directed by Steve Bakunas, at the TGB Theater. He displays his versatility, as he takes us on a journey from his birth to a variety of jobs as he travels through life. The program gives special thanks to Linda Lavin, who happens to be his wife.


 

The New York City Ballet presented A Midsummer Night's Dream, music by Felix Mendelssohn, choreography by George Balanchine. It is one of the most delightful  ballets in the company's repertoire. The cast was perfect, with outstanding dancing by Teresa Reichlen as Titania, Daniel Ulbricht as Oberon and Troy Schumacher as Puck. The orchestra, conducted by Andrew Litton, played the wonderful score beautifully.
 


 

American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented La Fille mal gardee, music by Ferdinand Herold, choreography by Frederick Ashton. It is a comic masterpiece. It takes place in a rural setting, with a widow (Roman Zhurbin) wanting her daughter (Isabella Boylston) to marry the idiot son (Craig Salstein) of a wealthy farmer. The daughter loves a young, handsome poor farmer (Jeffrey Cirio). The ballet is a joy to watch, with brilliant dancing by the entire cast to the glorious music played by the orchestra, conducted by Ormsby Wilkins. One cannot have a more enjoyable night at the Metropolitan Opera House.


 

The New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players presented Princess Ida, libretto by William S. Gilbert, music by Arthur Sullivan, at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. As always, we have to be grateful to the director and conductor, Albert Bergeret, for keeping the tradition of the two brilliant geniuses alive. The performances are first class, and delightful to watch. The cast is enthusiastic and energetic, and the staging is funny. The quintet in the second act The Woman of the Wisest Wit was the highlight for the clever staging, excellent singing and witty movements. Thank goodness, we have this splendid company in New York.
 

One of the most delightful events of the season is the Origin Theatre's Annual Gala at Mutual of America, 320 Park Avenue on the 35th Floor with a spectacular view of the city. This year, a lady from my hometown, Manchester, England, Lesley Nicol (Mrs. Patmore of Downton Abbey) received the European Artist Award. Her colleague in the same show, Brendan Coyle was on hand to congratulate her. The second honoree was Attracta Lyndon, Vice President of North America, Dooley Car Rental, who received the Community Leader Award. Artistic Director George C. Heslin can be proud of his magnificent event, which provided a delicious buffet, a fine open bar, sparkling entertainment and a wonderful auction for his guests, which included Charlotte Moore, Ciaran O'Reilly and Noel Donovan of Blooms Tavern, 208 East 58th St, where on June 16 he will serve his Annual Bloomsday Breakfast at 7am. I certainly will not miss that.


 

For the first time in many years, I was unable to attend the Theatre World Awards, which this year took place at Circle in the Square. I was able to attend the lovely After Party at Copacabana, where I congratulated Dale Badway on this special occasion. Among the honorees were splendid actors like Danielle Brooks, Cynthia Erivo, Ben Whishaw, Ana Villafane and many others.


 

Another reception at The Lambs Club was a lovely affair. It was Designed to Celebrate: A Toast to the 2016 Tony Awards Creative Arts Nominees. Among the guests who attended, I photographed Reed Birney, Steve Martin, Adrienne Warren, Jane Krakowski, Sergio Trujillo, Jack Noseworthy, Megan Hilty, Andy Blankenbuehler, and many others. Everyone enjoyed the open bar and delicious food.


 

The American Cancer Society's 11th Annual Taste of Hope at the Metrpolitan Pavilion honored Chef David Burke, Drew Nieporent and Jean Shafiroff. It is always a splendid affair, Many restaurants take part, offering their favorite dishes, and wines and spirits from many countries are served. Among the many celebrity guests were Emcee Chris Wragge, Richard Kind and Mrs. New York Alison Trenk.

 

The Mid-Manhattan Library presented Thank Your Lucky Stars, by David Butler, USA, 1943. I was 11-years-old when I saw it in England during World War II and laughed a lot at Eddie Cantor, who played two roles, himself as a star on radio, and a look alike tour bus driver. Now at 84, I realize that a 11-year-old is generally not a reliable critic. It is an all star film about a charity show to raise funds for the war effort. The silly plot has the bus driver imitating Cantor, when he is kidnapped (by Indians!) because of his interference with the show. Among the many cameo performances, we see Bette Davis, Errol Flynn, Ann Sheridan, Olivia de Havilland and Ida Lupino sing, and Alexis Smith dance a Latin number. Dinah Shore, who has a bigger part in her film debut, sings four songs. While it is an interesting oddity, the song sung by Davis They're Either Too Young or Too Old, about the shortage of available men for dating, because they are being conscripted into the Armed Forces, became a popular hit during World War II, and Davis performed it on screen wonderfully.
