Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - July 1, 2017


Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
July 1, 2017



On Broadway, Marvin's Room, by Scott McPherson, at American Airlines Theatre, was seen Off-Broadway 25-years ago. Now for no good reason, it has transferred to Broadway. In spite of having a fine cast, directed by Anne Kauffman, it is about a dysfunctional family, that suffers from every imaginable disease. The title refers to the grandfather, who does not appear, as he is dying in his room. The cast spends a lot of time going into his room. The opening scene features his daughter (Lili Taylor) with a doctor, who is to take a blood sample. He is the most stupid, incompetent, ridiculous character to ever appear on a stage. It is supposed to be funny. For me, it was not. It was irritating and unbearable. 


Off-Broadway, Napoli, Brooklyn, by Meghan Kennedy, at the Laura Pels Theatre, takes place in 1960 in Park Slope. The highlight of this tedious play is when the stage darkens, and a tremendous explosion is heard. A plane has crashed killing six people on the ground. Until then, we meet a tyrannical Italian illegal immigrant, his wife, who prays a lot, and his three unhappy daughters. There are also three other characters. Gordon Edelstein is responsible for directing this eight member cast.


Off-Broadway, The Crusade of Connor Stephens, by Dewey Moss, who also directed the excellent eight member cast, headed by James Kiberd, at the Jerry Orbach Theater, takes place in a small town in Texas, where a family is ripped apart by gun violence.


It is a serious, powerful, well acted play. Gun violence is the disease of modern America.

I photographed the final curtain call of Sunset Boulevard, starring Glenn CloseSir Andrew Lloyd Webber appeared on stage to congratulate her. It was a very emotional moment. She spoke to the audience touchingly about repeating this wonderful role over twenty years later. She is a magnificent actress.


Kate Burton received a caricature at Sardi's. Many of her cast members from Present Laughter showed up to congratulate her, with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Many friends also attended, like Jordan Roth, Tony Walton and Gen Walton. It was a lovely event.


I attended a Meet & Greet for Canada's Soulpepper Theatre Company at Pershing Square Signature Center, 480 West 42nd Street, where it will perform from July 1 - July 29. They will offer 12 productions with 65  actors. Artistic Director Albert Schultz addressed the reporters to explain the reason for their visit to New York in celebration of Canada Day on July 1, which celebrates the 150th birthday of Canada as a nation and its friendship with the United States. The talented singers and musicians performed two selections from Spoon River, composed by Mike Ross. It was most impressive. I eagerly await seeing the entire 90 minutes production. I also hope to see many of the other productions from this wonderful company.
