Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben October 7, 2017



Aubrey Reuben

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

October 7, 2017

Off-Broadway, one of the most delightful evenings that I have spent at the theatre this season was Desperate Measures, loosely based on Shakespeare's Measure for Measure, book and lyrics by Peter Kellogg, music by David Friedman, at the Theater at Saint Peter's, which is a York Theatre Company production. The six members cast sing and act wonderfully, under the direction and choreography of Bill Castellino. The four musicians play the lovely songs and melodious music under the conductor David Hancock Turner. It is a pleasure to hear. The six cast members are so marvelous, that I must name them. Nick Wyman, Peter Saide, Emma Degerstedt (photo below), Lauren Molina, Conor Ryan and Gary Marachek are hilarious. I enjoyed every minute of the show. I congratulated the cast and creative team at the opening night party at Luna Piena, 243 East 53rd St with guests like Kate Baldwin, Julie Budd and Tovah Feldshuh.

MoMA presented Jang Woo-jin's Autumn, Autumn (Chuncheon, chuncheon), South Korea, 2017 (although the final title states 2016), Sep 29-Oct 5. It is a film in two parts. An unemployed young man returns from a job interview in Seoul, and is frustrated as he makes contact with old friends. The second part has a middle age couple from Seoul spending time together, obviously on their first date. As their dialogue proceeds over two meals and a night spent in a hotel, we learn about their lives. It is a tender, sensible, remarkable film, beautifully photographed. In 78 minutes, one captures the life of three separate individuals in a distinctly South Korean small town atmosphere. The acting by all three is natural, and the middle age couple are charming. It is a fine film experience.

A Red Bull Theater Benefit Reading of The Triumph of Love, by Marivaux, translated by James Magruder, directed by Jesse Berger, at Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space, featured a superb cast of seven artists and the Lumiere String  Quartet. It is a convoluted plot involved with cross dressing, but is quite funny and entertaining, and proves love conquers all. At a reception afterwards in the Thalia bar, I photographed cast members Kathryn Meisle and Carson Elrod (photo below), and chatted with guests like Laila Robins, Robert Cuccioli and Stephen DeRosa. It was a lovely evening.


I attended a photo op at Shelter Studios for Harry Clarke, by David Cale, starring Billy Crudup, directed by Leigh Silverman, a Vineyard Theatre production in association with Audible. It opens on November 21, and I eagerly await the opening.


I attended a fabulous Gruppo Italiano and Vinomatica.com wine tasting at Il Gattopardo, 13-15 West 54th Street. We tasted a large selection of magnificent white, red and spumante wine from Emilia-Romagna, a region in the north of Italy. Along with hors d'oeuvres from the region, it was delightful event. The varieties of wines were served from Consorzio Tudela del Lambrusco de Modena, Consorzio  Marchio Storico del Lambruschi modenesi, Consorzio Vini di Romagna and Consorzio Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Moderna. After tasting the food and wines, one wants to fly immediately to Italy and enjoy the wonderful food and wine.


I attended a preview of a new Off-Broadway musical, Red Roses, Green Gold, music and lyrics by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter, directed by Rachel Klein, at Paul Colby'The Bitter End, 147 Bleecker Street. The musical from MVM Live opens on October 29 at the Minetta Lane Theatre. We listened to three selections performed by the eight member cast, who are superb musicians and singers. I predict it will be a great success.

The New York City Ballet presented a marvelous program of three ballets by 
. It began with Square Dance, music by Arcangelo Corelli, danced brilliantly, by the entire ensemble and the two leads Megan Fairchild and Anthony Huxley. It continued with La Valse, music by Maurice Ravel, led by Sterling Hyltin and Jared Angle. It concluded with the delightful Cortege Hongrois, music by Alexander Glazounov, which was the highlight of the evening. The two magnificent leading couples were Sara Mearns and Tyler Angle, and Georgina Pazcoquin and Ask La Cour, and the ensemble rose to their high level performance. Balanchine would have been proud of them. Andrews Sill conducted the first and third ballets and Daniel Capps the second.

The Guggenheim, 1071 Fifth Avenue, presented a wonderful exhibition Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World, October 6-January 7, 2018. Unfortunately, the museum had to remove three exhibits from the show, because of vile threats to harm employees of the museum. It is appalling that fanatics can have such a repulsive influence over an art show. Anyway, the museum filled the entire space with a multitude of pieces of modern art, paintings and interesting videos. One of the videos features ten naked men and women who lie down on top of each other on top of a mountain to make the mountain bigger. Voyeurs will enjoy that video in particular. I urge everyone to see this fascinating exhibition. I also hope the police will bring to justice the mental cases, who hurl threats against innocent workers.
