Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben August 12, 2017

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

August 12, 2017



Mostly Mozart presented an all-Beethoven concert, at David Geffen Hall. It began with the a rousing Overture to Egmont. The orchestra never sounded better, especially the brass section. It proceeded to Piano Concerto No. 1 in C major, with a 24 years old Beatrice Rana. She gave an astonishing performance. Her dexterity in the rapid first and third movements was simply amazing. I have heard the concerto played over many, many years by the most famous pianists, but I was overwhelmed by this young soloist's virtuosity. It was a memorable performance. The orchestra concluded the wonderful program with Symphony No. 7 in A major. Again, the orchestra gave a splendid performance, under the baton of the brilliant conductor Louis Langree.


Musicals in Mufti presented Jerry's Girls, music and lyrics by Jerry Herman, at the Theater at Saint Peter's Church. 619 Lexington Avenue, with three wonderful singers, Christine Pedi, Stephanie D'Abruzzo and Stephanie Umoh, (photo below) directed by Pamela Hunt, accompanied by a magnificent pianist Eric Svejcar. The composer wrote lovely melodies with fine lyrics from his many Broadway shows, which the three singers performed to the delight of the audience. We congratulated the cast at the opening night party in the Music Room with wine and delicious food.

In 40 years of reviewing Broadway, I have never seen a political rally on stage. Michael Moore (photo below),in his The Terms of My Surrender, at the Belasco Theatre, is certainly not the typical Broadway show that people pay money to see. For almost two hours without an intermission, we are forced to hear his many accomplishments, plus his desire to become President of the United States in 2020.

He spends most of the time, spewing anti Trump remarks, using vulgar language, such as the f... word. He also interviews a guest. On opening night, it was Gloria Steinem. She spoke beautifully without using any vulgar language. He sings a song. He dances with a female dancer Kylie Shea Lewallen. In both cases, he reveals that he should not be cast in a musical. A pointless quiz show is included with a Canadian and and American picked out of the audience. I could give more examples, but again there is no point to it. Michael Mayer directed. Michael has directed many fine shows on Broadway, unfortunately, this was not one of them.A slew of celebrities attended opening night, and many of them enjoyed the opening night party at Bryant Park Grill. I enjoyed a Bacardi Rum. As I mentioned in my review of a recent Off-Broadway play, shows like this could drive a normal person to drink.

A Parallelogram
, by Bruce Norris, at the Second Stage Theater, begins with a young woman (Celia Keenan-Bolger) sitting on a bed in her apartment. She begins to whine, and, unfortunately, never stops. Every cliche about life is uttered. It is excruciating. Scenes are repeated over and over again for no purpose. Plays like this one can drive a normal  person to drink.


Lili Marlene, book, music and lyrics by Michael Antin, at St. Luke's Theatre, is about a Jewish cabaret singer in Berlin as the Nazis begin their climb to power. The head of the passport office helps her and his family to escape to Switzerland.
