Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben November 17, 2018

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

November 17, 2018


The York Theatre Company's 27th Oscar Hammerstein Award Gala
 honored Susan Stroman at the Edison Ballroom. Matthew Broderick was the host. A multitude of actors performed including Sierra Boggess, Terrence Mann, Karen Ziemba, among many others too numerous to name. It is always a grand evening.
 

Sam Waterston presented Jane Fonda (photo below of Sam and Jane) with the 2018 Trophee Des Arts and CEO Sebastien Bazin with the FIAF Polier d'Or, at the Plaza Hotel. Among the many elegant guests, the creme de la creme of the French society in New York, I photographed the honorees and chatted with old friends like Sam Waterston and Charles and Clo Cohen. It is always a delightful affair. It was one of three events I covered the same night.

 

The 48th Annual Theater Hall of Fame supper took place at The Palm Restaurant, where the honorees, presenters and guests enjoyed a delicious meal. The honorees present were Rene Auberjonois, Christine Baranski, (photo below with Andre Bishop) David Henry Hwang and Joe Mantello. Three honorees had passed away, and Cicely Tyson was being honored the same night in Los Angeles. Among the numerous guests were Frank Langella, Nathan Lane, Carmen de Lavallade, Dana Ivey, Lois Smith, Charlotte St. Martin, Estelle Parsons and Andre Bishop. I am the official photographer for the event, one of my favorites of the season.

 

King Kong, written by Jack Thorne, score composed and produced by Marius de Vries, songs by Eddie Perfect, directed and choreographed by Drew McOnie, at the Broadway Theatre, is a spectacular production. The scenic & projection designer Peter England and the Kong/aerial movement director Gavin Robins have done a superb job to create an enormous gorilla of the title. It will please adults and children. If a magnificent puppet gorilla, worked by eighteen puppeteers, can deserve a Tony nomination, this is the one. It is, without doubt, the most and enjoyable and impressive part of the musical. .






The female lead, who captivates the animal, 
Christiani Pitts, sings and acts very well, and their scenes together are the highlight of the show. The plot is weak, the songs are not memorable, the lyrics of the songs are banal and the choreography is unimpressive. But that gorilla will remain in your memory forever. A side note. Fay Wray was the star of the film, and I had the pleasure of knowing her and her last husband. She was charming.

Broadway Salutes
 took place at Sardi's, with host Danny Burstein, and Nicolette Robinson performing a song from Promises, PromisesMichael David offered special thanks at the 10th annual event recognizing theatre professionals working 25, 35, 50 plus years on Broadway. It was wonderful to see, chat and share a glass of wine with so many talented people that I have known for over fifty years. It was a lovely afternoon.


 

MoMA is presenting Modern Matinees: Douglas Fairbanks Jr. November 1-December 28. I saw Gunga Din, by George Stevens, USA, 1937, about an Indian water carrier (Sam Jaffe), who bravely saves a British garrison from being destroyed by terrorists in India during the nineteenth century, when Queen Victoria was the Empress of India. It starred Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Cary Grant and Victor McLaglen. I was eight-years-old in Manchester, England in 1940 during World War II. The film made me proud of my British heritage.
 


The Columbus Library presented The Red Shoes, by Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger, U.K, 1938. It is about the head of a ballet company (Anton Walbrook}, a ballerina (Moira Shearer) and a composer (Marius Goring), who created the ballet of the title. The entire cast is outstanding, and is probably the finest ballet film ever made. I saw the film as a student at Indiana University in 1949, and fell in love with ballet. I have danced with Makarova (not ballet), chatted with Nureyev, met Shearer, drank with Balanchine, photographed Martha Graham, and taken classes with Tommy Gomez (a dancer on Broadway in The King and I). The dance world has enriched my life, and given me many pleasant memories, joy and happiness.
