Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -November 7, 2015


 

 

Aubrey Reuben

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

November 7, 2015

 

 
I felt Shakespeare was still alive and writing his wonderful  plays, when I saw King Charles III, by Mike Bartlett, at the Music Box Theatre. What a brilliant imagination this playwright has! He imagines that Prince Charles (a remarkable performance by Tim Pigott-Smith) has become King of England after the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II. He is a most indecisive character, but he is forced to make a decision when parliament passes a bill to restrict the press. This produces a crisis, which results in causing riots throughout the country. His own family is affected. The cast is wonderful, under the expert direction of Rupert Goold. Among the magnificent actors on the stage, one must mention Lydia Wilson as Kate as a manipulative daughter-in-law, Oliver Chis as Prince William, Richard Goulding as Prince Harry and Anthony Calf as the Prime Minister. The entire cast deserves a standing ovation for bringing to Broadway an intelligent, impressive play. The opening night party was held at Bryant Park Grill with guestsEdward Hibbert, Suzanne Bertish, Lea Salonga and George Takei. It was a delightful event.


The story of Emilio and Gloria Estefan and Miami Sound Machine is presented as a musical, On Your Feet!, book by Alexander Dinelaris, at the Marquis Theatre. Fans of their music will have a great time, listening to their successful hit songs. Directed byJerry Mitchell, and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo, the entire cast, mainly latino, sing, dance and act energetically to bring the story alive. Ana Villafane is terrific as Gloria Estefan, with a magnificent voice, and captures the life of the Cuban American superstar beautifully. She is well supported by Josh Segarra as Emilio, and a superb Andrea Burns as her mother. An adorable young little actor, Eduardo Hernandez, in three roles, steals every scene in which he appears, when he dances. The production is entertaining, and the audience loves it. Some even get to dance a conga up the aisles with the cast before the intermission. The opening night party at the Marriott Marquis Hotel was full of celebrities, including Gloria and Emilio, plus Rita Moreno.

 
 
Off-Broadway, Romance Language, by Joe Godfrey, at Theater 511 at Ars Nova, is about a divorced, middle aged, lonely widow (Audrey Heffernan Meyer), who is seduced by a young Italian private tutor (Jared Zirilli), who is teaching her the language.
 


Her daughter (Mairin Lee) is suspicious of his intentions, and investigates his background with startling results. Directed by Carl Andress, the three member cast is superb. The dialogue is sharp and realistic. It was one of the most enjoyable nights in the theater this season.


Bernadette Peters
 was honored at The Drama League's Centennial Gala at the Plaza Hotel. Gloria Estefan joined her for photos, along with Annaleigh Ashford, Leanne Cope, Joel Grey, Norm Lewis and the cast of Dames at Sea, John Bolton, Danny Gardner, Eloise Kropp, Lesli Margherita, Cary Tedder and Mara Davi, who all performed. Bernadette looked gorgeous. She never changes. She has the secret to the Fountain of Youth.


Margo Manhattan
, 1202 Madison Avenue, is a lovely jewelry boutique, and I was invited there for a streaming of a television program about Margo on EVlineNetwork, while we were served champagne and hors d'oeuvres. Margo is on the cover of Travel magazine on a motorcycle, and looks like a Rock star.
 
 
WebMD held a 2015 Health Hero Awards Gala at The Times Center. Among the honorees was Glenn Close, and among the presenters were Fran Drescher, Seth Rogen and Harry Carson. It was a lovely event
 
A commercial film Mustang, by Deniz Gamze Erguven, Turkey, 2015, is a profound view of Turkish society in a provincial village in Northeastern Turkey on the Black Sea, where women are treated like second class citizens by domineering men. Five free spirited sisters live with their grandmother, since their parents are deceased. A neighbor informs her of suspected misbehavior by the schoolgirls with teenage boys. The grandmother asks their uncle to discipline the young girls. He turns their home into a virtual prison with locked doors, forcing them to learn to cook and do housework to prepare them for arranged marriages. The title refers to the wild, untamed horse with a flowing mane, which the five sisters represent in human form. They try to rebel. The acting of the five young actresses is superb, with Gunes Sensoy outstanding as the youngest rebel. Every scene is perfect, and the photography is beautiful. This film will leave a deep impression on the viewer. It is one of the finest films I have reviewed this year.
