Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - August 27 2016


Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
August 27, 2016


Off-Broadway, The Layover, by Leslye Headland, at 2econdStageTheatre, is play about two strangers (Annie Parisse and Adam Rothenberg) sitting together on a flight, which is delayed. They lie about themselves and wind up in a hotel room making love. The unbelievable play continues, with a violent ending. The acting is quite good, under Trip Cullman's direction, but the play leaves a lot to be desired.


A Day by the Sea, by N.C. Hunter, at the Beckett Theatre, is a production of the Mint Theater Company. This fine company presents productions of excellent plays, which have been forgotten, and resurrects the reputation of the playwrights.. A fine example of their wonderful efforts is seen in this play, with an excellent ten member cast, expertly directed by Austin Pendleton. A diplomat in the British Foreign Office (Julian Elfer) is 40-years-old, and experiences a midlife crisis, when he is informed that he is suddenly being reassigned from Paris to London. During his visit home with his family and friends on a beautiful estate in the south of England, he tries to decide his future. The play is intelligent, and the dialogue is a joy to listen to. Jill Tanner as his mother gives an outstanding performance, and the other cast members are equally good.


Philanthropist & Auhor Jean Shafiroff is on the cover of the Resident Magazine's August Hamptons 2016 issue. There was a celebration at the elegant Chelsea Station restaurant and bar, 290 8th Avenue, with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. It was a delightful event.


I photographed a caricature presentation at the Palm Restaurant, 250 West 50th St, of the cast of Avenue Q and their puppets. It was well deserved.


Things to Come/L'Avenir, by Mia Hansen-Love, France, 2016, stars Isabelle Huppert as a university philosophy teacher, married to another philosophy teacher for 25 years. They have two grownup children. He announces to her that he has met someone and is leaving her. They divorce and she has to begin a new single life. Huppert is in every scene. We see her on the train, in the classroom, at home, and often with her disturbed mother, who finally dies. This is film that middle aged divorced women can relate to. Huppert, one of France's most distinguished film actresses, give a fine performance, but the character is a dull, serious, depressing person, who, in the classroom, reads philosophical jargon to her students, as she says, to make them think. Her daughter presents her with a grandchild towards the end of the film. The photography is excellent, but the film is less appealing.


Crystal Renee Emery is a producer/writer/director of the documentary film Black Women in Medicine. I attended a reception at the First Presbyterian Chuch before viewing the film at Cinema Village. The film shows how very few women, especially black women, have become successful in the field of medicine. She interviews those that have succeeded in spite of the prejudice that exists. It is an impressive film. CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller spoke to the guests at the reception and was the emcee for the occasion. It was a delightful evening.
