Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben February 10, 2018

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

February 10, 2018

The Chekhov Dreams, by John McKinney, at the Beckett Theatre, is an overlong play about the Russian playwright and a actor, who is working on a scene from one of his plays. The actor has a dead wife, who appears in his dreams. It is quirky play. If you care for ghosts, this may be the play to see. The five member cast is directed by Leslie Kincaid Burby.

Hangmen, by Martin McDonagh, directed by Matthew Dunster, at the Linda Gross Theater, is a production of the Atlantic Theater Company. In 1966, England abolished capital punishment. Two years later, Harry, a hangman, (a fine Mark Addy) is running a pub near Manchester, where I was born and raised. A police inspector spends his time there drinking beer with three regular customers. A stranger arrives, and the far-fetched plot thickens. The cast is quite good, and five of them are from England, some from the original production. However, the overlong production includes banal dialogue repeated over and over again. If you enjoy watching people being hanged, this play may be your cup of tea. The playwright specializes in two nouns beginning with v, violence and vulgarity.

The 2018 Annual Williamstown Theatre Festival Gala was held at Tao Downtown, 369 West 16th St. A host of celebrities came to honor Gary Levine. Among them were Matthew Broderick (photo below), Emmy Rossum, Mandy Patinkin, Becky Ann Baker, Ann Harada, James Naughton and his lovely new wife Sarah and many more too numerous to mention. It was a lovely event.



The 2018 Kleban Awards for Musical Theatre took place at ASCAP, 1900 Broadway, with a reception and a ceremony. The recipients were lyricists Alan Schmuckler and Amanda Yesnowitz, and librettist Christian Duhamel (their photo below). Among the many guests were Richard Maltby, Jr, Maury Yeston, John Weidman and Andre Bishop. It is always a wonderful affair.


I was invited to a Jue Lan Club VIP Tasting Dinner at the Jue Lan Club, 49 West 20th St. It was a delicious dinner. We began with appetizers of Pastrami & Onion Spring Rolls, Steam Crab & Pork Juicy Buns, Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce, Edamame Dumplings, Truffle Oil, Miso Broth, Braised Oxtail Bao Buns, Asian Slaw, Crispy Duck & Mushroom Dumplings. Then entrees Beijing Chicken, Red Bean Sauce, Walnuts, Miso Glazed Salmon, Sauteed Eggplant, Cucumber Salad, Green Prawns, Chinese Water Spinach, Cauliflower, Cashews, 4lb Ginger & Scallion Lobster, Their Signature Peking Duck, Housemade Pancakes, with sides, Duck & Kimchee Fried Rice, House Special Fried Rice, Baby Bok Choy, Ginger, Carlic a, Chicken Lo Mein. and for dessert, Jue Lan Club Special Forbidden Dessert Plate. All this wonderful food was served family style. With marvelous cocktails like Purple Rain and fine wines, it was a meal to remember. Every gourmet must dine at the Jue Lan Club.

The Columbus Library presented Young Man With a Horn, by Michael Curtiz, USA, 1950, starring Kirk Douglas, Lauren Bacall, Doris Day and Hoagy Carmichael. It is the story of a trumpet player, who dedicates his life to playing jazz music. His life becomes upset when he marries a wife with serious mental problems.  Popular songs like With a Song in My Heart, and The Very Thought of You are heard throughout the film sung by Doris Day. The dialogue is adult and intelligent, and the acting is superb. Music lovers of jazz and popular music will enjoy the film.
