Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - March 24 2018


Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
March 24, 2018


A revival of Angels in America, by Tony Kushner, at the Neil Simon Theatre, opens on Sunday, March 25. A review will appear in my column after the opening.

A revival of Lobby Hero, by Kenneth Lonergan, at the newly renovated Hayes Theater, formerly the Helen Hayes Theater, opens on Monday, March March 26. A review will appear in my column after the opening.


Gingold Theatrical Group's St. Patrick's Day 2018 Golden Shamrock Gala was held at 3 West Club, 3 West 51st St. Actress Martha Plimpton and Tom Viola were the honorees. Artistic Director David Staller introduced many of the celebrities who attended, like Tyne Daly and Allison Fraser, (photo below) who posed for me with a mockup of George Bernard Shaw, whose plays the Gingold Theatrical Group presents. As I had to attend Part 2 of Angels in America, I could only stay for the lovely reception.


Pia Lindstrom and William Ivey Long (photo below) were among the guests at the American Theatre Wing's 21st Annual Jonathan Larson Grants recognizing emerging creators of musical theatre at Jerome Green Space, 44 Charlton St. where the grantees performed. A reception with delicious hors d'oeuvres and fine wine preceded the presentation.

I received Something Wonderful: Rodgers and Hammerstein's Broadway Revolution, by Todd S. Purdom, 2018, published by Henry Holt and Company. Every theatre lover should purchase this book. The composer Richard Rodgers and the lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II produced some of the finest musicals ever to appear on Broadway, beginning with Oklahoma! in 1943 and ending with The Sound of Music in 1959. Many were made into magnificent film musicals.

The writer describes the background of the two brilliant men, and tells about their successes and failures. They were fascinating personalities, and there is an honest assessment of their personal life as well as their professional life.

I found it hard to put the book down. I had to read every page, and I enjoyed every minute reading it. Wonderful stars of the age tell anecdotes about working with these fine gentlemen, and I am thrilled to write that I photographed many of them and became friends with these stars whom I admired. Who can forget Ethel Merman, Yul Brynner, Mary Martin, Julie Andrews and Stephen Sondheim? I recommend this book highly, and you will be well rewarded reading and treasuring it. It will be a splendid addition to your library.

New York City Center Encores! at 25 presented Grand Hotel: The Musical, book by Luther Davis, music and lyrics by Robert Wright and George Forrest, based on the novel by Vicki Baum, with additional music by Maury Yeston. Although it had a checkered history, it finally became a success on Broadway, when Tommy Tune directed and choreographed it in 1989. In this version, Josh Rhodes directed and choreographed it, and he rose splendidly to the occasion. The cast, the singers and the dancing is perfect. Tommy Tune would approve. The story, about guests and staff of the elegant hotel in Berlin, focuses on six main characters and their problems. All are fine, but the highlight is We'll Take A Glass Together, sung by Brandon Uranowitz and James Snyder with a magnificent ensemble. It richly deserved the tumultuous ovation. I have never in 25 years seen a poor production by Encores!, and I hope to enjoy 25 years more. It is a New York treasure. People who love musical theatre must see their productions.

The 53rd Street library presented Blow-Up, by Michelangelo Antonioni, UK/Italy, 1967, one of the director's best films, starring David Hemmings as a fashion photographer, who takes a photo in a park, which, when blown up, a body of a murdered man appears. It is a brilliantly colored film, and the acting by a wonderful cast, which includes Vanessa Redgrave and Sarah Miles, is superb. It is also a view of Swinging London, with beautiful young ladies, lots of nudity, the influence of drugs, rock and roll music and wild modern fashion for the young ladies. It was the age of the miniskirt. I enjoyed every minute of this marvelous film.
