Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - June 2, 2016

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
June 2, 2016

 


 

American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented Le Corsaire, staged by Anna-Marie Holmes, with music by a variety of composers. It was one of the most enjoyable productions that I have seen in years. The first act was simply amazing. Maria Kochetkova (Medora),Sarah Lane (Gulnare), Hernan Cornejo (Conrad), Craig Salstein (Birbanto), Jeffrey Cirio (Ali) and Danil Simkin (Landendem) all danced wonderfully, but Lane and Simkin were outstanding. Also in the first act, the three Odalisques, Skylar Brandt, Luciana Paris and Christine Shevchenko were superb. In the second act, Kochetkova, Cornejo and Cirio dominated the stage, and were equally outstanding. Charles Barker conducted the orchestra, which played the sparkling music by five composers perfectly. It was a glorious night at the ballet, and the principal dancers named left me overwhelmed by their brilliance.


 

Michael Presser and the Board of Directors of Inside Broadway presented Creating the Magic with Les Miserables at the Imperial Theatre for hundreds of school children, who will be the future theater audiences. Four members of the cast performed selections from the musical, and crew members explained how the set, sound, and lighting worked to create the magic of the performance. It was a delightful program, which the young audience enjoyed, judging by their enthusiastic applause.
 

 

At MoMA, there is a wonderful series Universal Pictures: Restorations and Rediscoveries 1928-1937 until June 15. I saw Show Boat, by James Whale, USA, 1936, starring Irene Dunne, Allan Jones, Charles Winninger, Helen Morgan and Paul Robeson. It is a superb film, with great music and magnificent singing by Dunne, Jones, Morgan, and, especially, Robeson. Winninger steals every scene with his comical acting. I enjoyed every moment of this memorable film, a perfect screen version of a brilliant Broadway musical.


 

 

 


 


Theatre critic Matt Windman has just written a marvelous book, which every theater lover should read. The Critics Say...57  Theater Reviewers in New York and Beyond Discuss Their Craft and its Future. The questions are probing. The replies are intelligent. Matt reviews theater for amNewYork and writes a theater column on Monday in Newsday. If you care about theatre, read this book!


 

We had the pleasure of dining with our friends George DiStefano and his lovely wife at Cafe Altro Paradiso, 234 Spring Street. George is the President of Unity Construction Group, which built the lovely, sleek restaurant, which was packed the night we dined there. The food is delicious and the wine list is extensive. It is, of course, an Italian restaurant, but its menu contains a wide variety of delectable selections. I can assure you, it will be one of your most enjoyable dining out experiences!

 

My wife and I attended the Annual Joseph Sirola's Champagne & Roses Soiree at his penthouse, where he has a rooftop garden full of wonderful plants, including his signature roses. He is is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of his party. Famous as an actor on stage, film and television, he is now producing plays on Broadway and Off-Broadway, most recently the excellent Cagney at the Westside Theatre. Delicious food was served on his terrace, and we had a wonderful time chatting with his many friends, including Bill Boggs,KT Sullivan, Jamie DeRoy and Eric Purcell, who happens to be Monique van Vooren's son. It was a swell party.


 

It is always a pleasure to attend a caricature unveiling at Sardi's Restaurant, especially for actors we admire. Cast members Jayne Houdyshell and Reed Birney, starring in The Humans, were honored. Two of their fellow cast members, Cassie Beck and Sarah Steele, introduced the honorees and told us how much they were inspired by the two veteran actors.  Many friends from Broadway were present for the occasion, and I had the pleasure to greet Michael Urie, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and producer Scott Rudin, among the many celebrities at the event.
