Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - November 19, 2016

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
November 19, 2016

 


 

Dave Malloy wrote the music, lyrics, book and orchestrations for Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, adapted from War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy, an imaginative and inventive Broadway musical at the Imperial Theatre, which has been redesigned as an elegant cabaret room with a Russian theme. There are portraits and paintings and mirrors covering all the walls, and the actors and musicians circulate throughout the theatre. It is short selection from the novel about the seduction of the heroine Natasha by a rogue Anatole and saved by Pierre. The cast is excellent, headed by Josh Groban (Pierre), who sings wonderfully, as well as playing various instruments. Also, outstanding are Denee Benton (Natasha) and Lucas Steele(Anatole). The director Rachel Chavkin and the choreographer Sam Pinkleton have done an expert job intermingling the cast with the audience. I have seen the Ars Nova production twice Off-Broadway, where we were served Russian food and vodka. Here some lucky members of the audience caught pierogies thrown by members of the cast. It is a most entertaining show.


 

Off-Broadway, Sweet Charity, book by Neil Simon, music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Dorothy Fields, opens Sunday November 20. My review will be in my next column.


 

Othello The Remix, written, composed and directed by GQ & JQ, at the Westside Theatre, is an 80-minute show for lovers of Rap. It is based on the play Othello by William Shakespeare, and tells the tragic story of how a wife is destroyed by her husband's jealousy. The talented four member cast and the DJ are energetic, and the audience enjoyed the performance..


 

Terms of Endearment, by Dan Gordon, based on the novel by Larry McMurtry, and the screenplay by James L. Brooks, is a wonderful production at 59E59 Theater. A six member cast, directed by Michael Parva, are terrific. Molly Ringwald as a possessive mother and Hannah Dunne as her daughter give superb performances. I enjoyed every minute of the play, and I recommend it highly. At the delightful opening night part at Blu on Park, 116 East 60th St, a host of celebrities attended, including Marlo Thomas, Elaine May, Susan Stroman, Rachel York, Tovah Feldshuh and David Saint. The wine beer and hors d'oeuvres were delicious. Producer Julian Schlossberg deserves congratulations on a splendid evening.


 

A Taste of Things to Come, book, music and lyrics by Debra Barsha and Hollye Levin, is a production of the York Theatre Company. The talented four member all female cast and the four female musicians, directed and choreographed excellently byLorin Latarro, tell the story of four friends who meet in the kitchen to cook for a cooking contest in 1957. The second act, ten years later, reveals the changes that have taken in their lives. It is an entertaining musical. The opening  night party took place at Luna Piena Restaurant, 243 East 53rd St. The food was delicious and the wines and beers also. It is a fine Italian restaurant, and definitely worth a visit.


 


 


 


 





The Dead, 1904,
 based on the novella by James Joyce, adapted by Paul Muldoon and Jean Hanff Korelitz, directed by Ciaran O'Reilly, at the American Irish Historical Society, 995 Fifth Avenue. It is a production of the Irish Repertory Theatre. It opens on December  8. My review will appear in the column following the opening.


 

I am the official photographer for The 46th Annual Theatre Hall of Fame at the Gershwin Theatre, which honored Paul Libin, Joe Masteroff, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Marsha Norman, Phylicia Rashad, Sir Tim Rice, Catherine Zuber, and Glenn Close, who, unfortunately, was unable to attend. The Mistress of Ceremonies was Susan Stroman. Among the guests at the late supper afterwards at The Palm Restaurant, 250 West 50th St, were Dana Ivey, Lois Smith, Jim Dale Christopher Durang, Debbie Allen, Bartlett Sher, Michael Wilson, Susan H. Schulman, Charlotte Moore and Joe Benincasa. The food was delicious and the wine and beer was enhanced the meal. It was a memorable occasion.



The Frick Collection, 1 East 70th St, as I have written many times, is one of the glorious buildings in New York. I attended the press preview of a wonderful exhibition, Pierre Gouthiere: Virtuoso Gilder at the French Court: November 16-February 19, 2017. Pierre Gouthiere was one of the greatest French artists of the eighteenth century, and seeing twenty-one of his finest works confirms this statement.His vases, ewers, firedogs, wall lights and doorknobs are exquisite. No wonder he created his objets d'art for the nobility of France. Do not miss this superb exhibition! You will be delighted.


 

The Theatre Communications Group Gala honored Danai Gurira, Stephen C. Byrd, Alia Jones-Harvey, The Vilcek Foundation & Rick Kinsel at the Edison Ballroom. Tamara Tunie was the host for the occasion. Among the presenters were TCG Executives, Adrian Budhu, Teresa Eyring and Kevin Moriarty, and also Emily Mann. Among the guests were Akosua Busia, Jainab Jah and David Henry Hwang. The dinner was delicious and the wines and cocktails were excellent. It was another splendid evening.

 


 

Kinky Boots celebrated 1500 performances and the debut of Todrick Hall with a lovely party at Paramount Bar and Grill with a delicious buffet and an open bar. The cast was very happy.


 

Sheldon and Margery Harnick hosted a delightful reception for their son's, Matt Harnick, launch of his book Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade at: A New York City Holiday Tradition at the Friar's Club, 57 East 55th St. Among the guests were Robert Cuccioli, Jim Dale and Kate Baldwin, who performed. It was a lovely event.


 

White Heat, by Raoul Walsh, USA, 1949, stars James Cagney, who was memorable as a gangster in the films of the 1930s. He returned to that role again playing a psychopathic leader of a gang of thieves in this remarkable film at the Columbus Branch Library, 742 Tenth Avenue. He is obsessed with his mother, and seeks revenge for her murder, when he escapes from jail. It is a fast moving, well made film, and Cagney is a joy to watch. Also impressive in a fine cast are Virginia Mayo as his unfaithful wife and Edmond O'Brien as the undercover cop who brings Cagney to his death.
