Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben November 3, 2018

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

November 3, 2018



The Waverley Gallery, 
by Kenneth Lonergan, at the Golden Theatre, is a play about a grandmother (Elaine May) who rents the art gallery of the title In Greenwich Village. She is having hearing difficulties, and shows signs that she is losing her mind. Her grandson (Lucas Hedges) narrates her sad story, while her daughter (Joan Allen) finds it is hard to take care of the frail lady. The five member cast, directed by Lila Neugebauer, give excellent performances. Anyone who has grandparents or parents suffering from dementia will relate to this realistic play.
 

Inner Voices, at TBG Mainstage Theatre, is an interesting evening of three short musical solo pieces, by three talented artists, accompanied by two different musicians for each selection. It began Window Treatment, starring Farah Alvin, about a lonely woman looking for love. The second was The Costume, starring an 11-year-old Finn Douglas, taking care of an injured bird in his bedroom. It concluded with Scaffolding, starring the incomparable Rebecca Luker, directed by Victoria Clark, about a single mother, hoping her son will be accepted at MIT. On opening night we congratulated the performers at a reception at the theater.

 

The Yeomen of the Guard, libretto by William S. Gilbert, music by Arthur Sullivan, at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College, is a production of the New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players. Directed and conducted by Albert Bergeret, founder, artistic director and general manager since 1974, it is one of the finest companies presenting the delightful operettas the nineteenth century of the two geniuses that are Gilbert and Sullivan. It is a convoluted story that takes place in the 16th century outside the Tower of London. A prisoner is to be beheaded, and what follows is highly entertaining.The principal singers and ensemble performed magnificently in this superb production. Among the singers, that were especially outstanding. one must mention James Mills, Daniel Greenwood, Matthew Wages, and Abigail Benke in her debut with the company. The beautiful music was played by the excellent orchestra. Albert Bergeret has to be congratulated for the glorious music that he has given New York for the past 40 years. I have enjoyed every production that he has offered.

The Martina Arroyo Foundation 2018 Gala honored three wonderful gentlemen of the world of opera, Simon Estes (photo below with Martina), Rufus Wainwright and Maestro Anton Coppola. 

It a was a pleasure to see Martina again. She was one of my favorite opera singers at the Metropolitan Opera, where I reviewed her many times. I also met Elaine Malbin, with whom we shared many memories from a long time ago. She also  was one of my favorite opera singers. I mentioned to Rufus that I was born in Manchester, England, and I visited my hometown in 2009 with my wife, where his opera Prima Donna was being performed. A small world indeed!  I took photos of Martina and the honorees. The event took place at the JW Marriott Essex House. It was a lovely affair.
 

I attended the after-party for the 24 Hr Musicals on Broadway, which is part of the 24 Hour Plays, which supports the Lillys, at the American Airlines Theatre. Many of the performers attended like Lea DeLaria, Jordan Roth and Norm Lewis, and writers like Amanda Green. I photographed Amanda and her husband before they left. It is a always a delightful event.

I attended the Claire Tow Theater for the 12th Annual Yale Drama Series Prize presented to Leah Nanako Winkler for her play God Said This. The evening began with a cocktail party followed by the award presentation, A reading of the play took place inside the theater with six splendid actors on stage, followed by another cocktail reception. It was a wonderful event, with delicious hors d'oeuvres and fine drinks. I enjoyed every minute of the delightful evening.
 

New York City has many fine museums, but the jewel in the crown is the Frick Collection, 1 East 70th St. At a press preview, three magnificent exhibitions were presented. Luigi Valadier: Splendor in Eighteenth-Century Rome, October 31, 2018-January 20, 2019. He was a brilliant artist, who worked in silver, gold, bronze and precious stones, and there are three rooms are dedicated to his work. It is a breathtaking exhibition. Do not miss it! The second exhibition is Masterpieces of French Faience: Selections from the Sidney R. Knefel Collection, October 10, 2018-September 22, 2019. The colorful ceramics are a joy to see. The plates are works of art.. The third exhibition is The Charterhouse of Bruges: Jan van Eyck, Petrus Chistus, and Jan Vos, September 18, 2018-January 13, 2019. The paintings are simply exquisite. Be sure to visit the Frick! You will be rewarded with a most enjoyable and memorable experience
