Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - May 7, 2016


Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
May 7, 2016


The Tony Nominations were announced by Nikki M. James and Andrew Rannells at The Diamond Horseshoe in the basement of The Paramount Hotel. The next day, the nominees received their certificates and were photographed. There were few surprises.Hamilton received 16 nominations, the most ever for a show on Broadway. Most of the nominees attended, and I eagerly await Sunday, June 12, when I will photograph the winners at the Beacon Theatre.


Off-Broadway, Dear Evan Hansen, book by Steven Levenson, music and lyrics by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, at 2econdStageTheatre, is a musical about teenagers. Five of them dominate the stage. Four are outsiders in their school, and miserable. One commits suicide. For various, unbelievable reasons, they become popular and famous. Although the musical arrived with much publicity, I was not impressed.


Crude, by Jordan Jaffe, at Ars Nova, has an apt title. Although it refers to an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the play itself contains crude language, and is full of cliches. Diversity on stage is proved by the four member cast, directed by Kel Haney. They are a white man, a white woman, a black man and a latino, who is a drug dealer. They consume drugs, drink alcohol and act like total, irritating fools. I was not amused.


I attended a Meet & Greet for Himself and Nora The Musical, book, music and lyrics by Jonathan Brielle, directed by Michael Bush, at Signature Theater Rehearsal Studios, which opens on Monday, June 6 at Minetta Lane Theatre. We photographed the five member cast and creative team, after we saw five selections, performed by the cast. I eagerly await the opening night.


I attended the Awards Ceremony and Gala performance of the Valentina Kozlova International Ballet Competition 2016, at Symphony Space. It was an amazing and delightful evening. The talented dancers from age 11-26-years of age displayed their skill and technique in classical and contemporary dance, and in original choreography in the gala performance. Everyone was very good, but some were exceptional. Eun Soo Lee in Harlequinade, Seung Min Yoo in Don Quixote, Jun Yu Lee in Sacred Blade, all from South Korea, and Nikita Boris from USA in Esmeralda were phenomenal. I congratulate Valentina Kozlova for her contributions to the world of dance.






The New York Pops 33rd Birthday Gala Do You Hear The People Sing
, at Carnegie Hall, was one of the finest programs they have ever done. They honored Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg, who created the magnificent Broadway musical Les Miserables. A wonderful cast performed their music, including Patti LuPone, Laura Osnes, Norm Lewis Jeremy Jordan, Lea Salonga, Montego Glover, Stephanie J. Block and many others. Musical Director Steven Reineke conducted the orchestra. After the concert, an elegant dinner dance was held in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.


After New York, my favorite state is now Kentucky. Why? Because I attended a reception with charming visitors from that state, who came to the Phillips Club, 155 West 66th St, before The National Chorale and The National Chorale Orchestra performed theRequiem, by Giuseppe Verdi, at David Geffen Hall, conducted by Artistic Director Everett Mccorvey. They brought specially baked rolls with ham, boxes of chocolates laced with bourbon, and Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Other food, like shrimp, tea sandwiches, without crust on the bread, platters of various cheeses and fruit, plus dishes of strawberries, accompanied by three fine wines, made the reception a beautiful party to enjoy the music that followed. The program began with The Professional Performing Arts High School Choir singing two selections by Mozart, and Va, pensiero, from Nabucco, by Verdi. The Soldiers Chorus of the United States Army Field Band sang six selections, which included Battle of Jericho and Lean On Me, conducted by Colonel Jim R. Keene. This was a memorable night of delicious food and drink and glorious music.


The 34th Annual Fred and Adele Astaire Awards 2016 Nominations were announced by Michael Riedel at a cocktail reception at the Friars Club. Many of the nominees attended including Savion Glover, Sergio Trujillo, the three nominees from Cagney,Robert Creighton, Ellen Zolezzi and Jeremy Benton and many, many others. It was a lovely occasion. The Awards take place at Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, 566 LaGuardia Place, on Monday, May 16. I plan to be there.


The Jewish Museum held a press preview for Roberto Burle Marx, a Brazilian Modernist, who revolutionized garden design and artistic expression in Brazil. The exhibition began on May 6 to September 18. It also featured Gamboa II, five hanging sculptures, by another Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes. They are well worth a visit. 


The Morgan Library  & Museum, 225 Madison Avenue, held a press preview of Dreams in Dust: The Pastels of Lucas Samaras, May 6-August 21, of dreamlike seascapes and interiors, self-portraits, nudes and still life. At the same time, we were invited to see two other exhibitions Warhol by the Book, to May 15 and Sight Reading: Photography and the Legible World, to May 16. All three are fascinating.
