On The Town With Aubrey Reuben May 26, 2018

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

May 26, 2018

Woman and Scarecrow , by  Marina Carr,  is a production of the Irish Repertory Theatre. Four splendid actors are directed expertly by  Ciaran   O'Reilly . The play takes place in the bedroom of a dying married lady (a remarkable  Stephanie Roth Haberle ), mother of twelve children and a unfaithful husband. We see her unhappiness and frustration in her  life. It is  a serious meditation on life and death. I photographed Marina and Stephanie (photo below) at the opening night party in the Gallery of the theater at an, always, wonderful party.
The 2nd Annual Chita Rivera Awards were presented at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. The three special awards were presented to Carmen de Lavallade, John Kander and Harold Prince. Among the winners were Sergio TrujilloSummer: The Donna Summer Musical for Outstanding Choreography in a Broadway Show, Tony YazbeckPrince of Broadway for  Outstanding Male  Dancer in a Broadway Show and  Ariana DeBoseSummer: The Donna Summer Musical for  Outstanding Female Dancer in a Broadway Show. Among the guests and presenters were Lee Roy Reams, Norbert Leo Butzand Ben Vereen ( photo below). The awards were originally the Astaire Awards, and I am happy to write that I have attended everyone of them. It is a lovely event.

The 63rd Annual 
 Obie Awards took  place at Terminal 5, 610 West 56th St. It is always an informal affair, that I have enjoyed when I worked with  Jerry Tallmer  at the  New York Post . He founded the event when working at the  Village Voice . Among the many winners was one of my favorite actresses  Kathleen Chalfant  who received a Lifetime Achievement Award. Other winners included  Billy Crudup, Robert Sean Leonard, Jessica Hecht, Amy Herzog , the York Theatre Company  and the Pan-Asian Repertory Theatre , and many more too numerous to mention.  We ate, drank and toasted the wonderful artists.  John Leguizamo  was the host for this magnificent event. 
Of all the museums in New York, none is finer, and  more charming than  the Frick Collection, 1 East 70th St. Every press event is a delight. I attended a press preview of  Canova's George Washington. Unfortunately, the original statue was destroyed in a fire in the State Capital in North Carolina, but a full size  modello  is on display alone in the Oval Room, and in the adjoining room an exhibition  of drawings. pieces of the original statue and  a painting of  George Washington  by  Gilbert Stuart ,  and one of Canova  by  Thomas Lawrence . Canova (1757-1822)  was considered the finest sculptor of his era. Do not miss this fascinating exhibition!

I attended a fundraiser for the new documentary Merely Marvelous: The Dancing Genius of Gwen Verdon, by Dennis Fill, (who was born in England and admired her talent so much that he flew to New York to see her in Damn Yankees four times),  Ken Bloom and Chris Johnson, at the Palm restaurant, 250 West 50th St. We saw clips from the documentary, while the filmmakers and  Gwen's nephew Paul Verdon spoke about the film. Among the guests at the reception were Broadway stars who worked with the immortal Gwen like Penny Fuller, Helen Gallagher  and Lee Roy Reams. It was a marvelous party

The New Group presented  Peace for Mary Frances , by  Lily Thorne , at the Pershing Square Signature Center, starring my all time favorite actress  Lois Smith  as a ninety year old dying lady with three generations  of siblings fighting for their inheritance. The cast is directed Lila Neugebauer . With children like these in the play, one can understand the need for birth control ! The opening night party took place at Social Drink & Food Rooftop at Yotel.

The 68th Outer Critics Circle Awards Dinner took place at Sardi's. Among the winners, who may also go on to win Tony Awards on June 10, were Tina Fey,  Andrew Garfield, Glenda Jackson, Lauren  Ambrose, Ethan Slater, Nathan Lane, Laurie Metcalf, Norbert Leo Butz, Lindsay Mendez. I have been a proud member of the Executive/Nominating Committee of OCC for almost 40 years.

The 18th Annual Audience Choice Awards took place at 48 Lounge, 1221 Avenue of the Americas. Amon gthe winners were Tina Fey, Uma Thurman, Andrew Garfield, Ethan Slater and Taylor Louderman. It was a very enjoyable reception.

My wife and I attended a delicious press Summer Tasting Weekend Brunch at Hooters, 155 West 33rd St. The brunch will debut on June 2 on Saturday and Sunday. Menu entrees range from $6.99 to $13.99, and for $24.99 "all-you-drink" for two  hours. Be sure to enjoy yourself at Hooters!

American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented two ballets with music by 
Igor Stravinsky. The first was a modernized version of Firebird, choreography by Alexei Ratmansky, with a brilliant Devon Teuscher in the title role. Alexandre Hammoudi as Ivan and Alexei Agoudine as Kaschei offered fine support. The orchestra was conducted by David LaMarche. The second was AfteRite, choreography by Wayne McGregor. It is based on The Rite of Spring, which debuted in Paris in 1913. This is a very modern version, perhaps ultra-modern. I loved the original ballet, which caused a riot when first produced. This production is inexplicable and difficult to understand. The dancing is always on a high level, with marvelous dancers headed by the magnificent Alessandra Ferri. The orchestra was conducted by Ormsby Wilkins.
