Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben February 11, 2017

 

 

Aubrey Reuben

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

February 11, 2017

 
 
 

On Broadway, a revival of Sunset Boulevard, music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, book & lyrics by Don Black & Christopher Hampton, based on the Billy Wilder film, at the Palace Theatre, starring Glenn Close, made a triumphant return to  Broadway. A superb cast supported the wonderful star. Michael Xavier, Siobhan Dillon and Fred Johanson in major roles added to the success of the evening. Lonny Price expertly directed the brilliant cast.. The evening began with a black tie private reception for Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber at the Lambs Club, followed by the opening night party after the show at Cipriani 42nd Street. Needless o say everyone was in fine spirits.


 

Off-Broadway, Jonah and Otto, by Robert Holman, at Theatre Row, is about two men, an older man Otto (Sean Gormley) and a younger man Jonah (Rupert Simonian), who meet one night in a mysterious walled garden on the South-East coast of England, and engage in conversation about their lives. It is a strange short play of about 85-minutes, in which the two weird men tell us about their fears and anxieties. The cast is fine, under the direction of Geraldine Hughes. A reception was held in the Theater Row Lounge,


 

Fade, by Tanya Saracho, at the Cherry Lane Theatre, is a production of Primary Stages. The two character play is directed by Jerry Ruiz. It takes place in a film studio, where a writer (Annie Dow) appears to be an emotional unstable person and uses the F... word a lot, and a janitor (Eddie Martinez) who uses a vacuum cleaner and empties the trash can. In a multitude of short scenes, where very little of importance happens, they exchange confidences, drink beer, and she even kisses him. The opening night party took place at Mr. Dennehy's, 63 Carmine Street, where everyone could enjoy a fine beer, or wine.


 

Crackskull Row, by Honor Molloy, at the Irish Repertory Theatre, is a powerful play,  which mixes reality with phantasy. Four magnificent actors, Gina Costigan, Terry Donnelly, Colin Lane and John Charles McLaughlin, are expertly directed by Kira Simring. A mother and son live in a dreadful, dirty apartment in Dublin. Their relationship is full of violence and sexual perversity. The opening night party took place in the lobby where we congratulated the cast and creative team and their families with fine wine, Jameson Whiskey and delicious hors d'oeuvres. It was a wonderful party.


The Bolshoi Theatre presented Swan Lake, music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, choreography by Yuri Grigorovich, by HD transmission from Moscow, starring Svetlana Zakharova and Denis Rodkin.
 


 

 





Their dancing was spectacular. Zakharova as Odette-Odile is, perhaps, the finest ballerina in the world today. Her technique, her speed, her turns, her 
fouttes are incomparable. Every minute is a pleasure to watch her perform. What brilliance!. Rodkin is her perfect partner, an aristocratic Prince Siegfried.
 

Artem Balyakov (The Evil Genius) and Igor Tsvirko (The Fool) were marvelous. Their speed and high jumps were magnificent. The corps de ballet were wonderful, as always, and the glorious music never sounded better. The set was bland, and many costumes were overdone, but the expansive space allowed the corps de ballet to shine and their costumes, and those of the leading dancers were appropriate. it was another exciting performance.


 

The 27th Annual Kleban Prize for Musical Theatre took place at ASCAP. The winners Daniel Zaitchik (the most promising musical theater lyricist) and Lisa Kron (the most promising musical theater librettist) received $100,000 each. Among the attendees were Sheldon Harnick, Richard Maltby, Jr. Maury Yeston and Seth Saltzman. Among the performers were Judy Kuhn, Emily Skeggs and Rick Hip Flores. There was a lovely reception to honor the winners.



The Transport Group Theatre Company presented A Toast to the Artist: An evening with Mary-Mitchell Campbell & Friends, at The Times Center, 242 West 41st St. Mary received the Transporting American Theatre Award 2017. Among the many artists who performed were Debra Monk, Titus Burgess and Raul Esparza. A reception, followed by the performance, followed by an after party made the evening memorable. Artistic Director Jack Cummings III and Executive Director Lori Fineman are to be congratulated for a fine affair.


 

Resident Magazine placed NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall and his wife Michi on its February cover. We celebrated the occasion at a private gallery on 23rd Street with cocktails and delicious hors d'oeuvres. I tasted a Scotch WhiskyUsquaebach, which was smooth and powerful. I was also offered two more whiskies, a Camus cognac, and Danska, a Polish vodka, along with caviar. It was a terrific party.



A ribbon cutting ceremony was held for the re-opening of the Hudson Theatre with Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford, who are starring in Sunday in the Park With George. Also present were Commissioner Julie Menin, Chairman Kwek Leng Beng and general manager Eric Paris. Inside the theatre, director Sarna Lapine, producers Jeanine Tesori, Adam Speers and Riva Marker posed for photos with the two stars.


 

The Mid-Manhattan Library, 455 Fifth Avenue, presented High Noon, by Fred Zinnemann, USA, 1952, starring Gary Cooper. It was one of the finest Westerns produced by Hollywood, with Cooper as the marshall of a small town, who retires after marrying a Quaker (Grace Kelly). Four bandits arrive on the same day to seek revenge for one of them being finally released from jail, and bent on killing the marshall. It is a taut, tense, intelligent film, with splendid acting by a great list of character actors, who had successful film careers. To mention a few, Lloyd Bridges, Katy Jurado, Thomas Mitchell and Otto Kruger give superb performances.
