Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - October 15, 2016

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
October 15, 2016


On Broadway, Oh, Hello on Broadway, by Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, directed by Alex Timbers, at the Lyceum Theatre, is a 90-minute show featuring the two writers. They are comedians, who have a cult following. Their fans filled the theater on the afternoon that I attended. They roared with laughter throughout the performance. They are an acquired taste, which, unfortunately, I have not been able to acquire, They appear before the curtain as 70-year-old New Yorkers, and then the curtain raises with a set supposedly to represent various plays. They then perform a play. A person appears on stage with them for an informal interview. It was Josh Groban, who will appear later in a Broadway show. As you can see, it is a chaotic performance, and I do not have the slightest idea why it is being presented on Broadway. I have a sense of humor, but I did not find anything funny.


Heisenberg, by Simon Stephens, at the Samuel F. Friedman Theatre, is a production of Manhattan Theatre Club, which appeared Off-Broadway last year.  It was then, and is now, an 80-minute, unbelievable play, with two characters, and minimal scenery of two tables and two chairs, with drab costumes. A neurotic middle aged woman, Georgie Burns (Mary-Louise Parker) plants a kiss on the neck of a 75-year-old lonely butcher, Alex Priest (Denis Arndt) on a platform of the London underground. She engages him in conversation, stalks him at his shop, has dinner with him, sleeps with him, relieves him of a large sum of money, with which she takes him to New Jersey to look for her estranged son, they dance the tango, and then become a romantic couple. The two actors act well, under the direction of Mark Brokaw. But the six short scenes seem more like an acting exercise than a play.



Off-Broadway, Chris Gethard: Career Suicide, directed by Kimberley Senior, at the Lynn Redgrave Theater, is an 80-minute one man show, starring  Chris Gethard, who seems to have a cult following. He tells them how he suffered from depression in high school and college, and had suicidal urges. He saw a psychiatrist at 22-years of age, and took various medications.






He is now 36-years old, and a comedian, as well as an actor on television and film. The audience roared with laughter as he told them about his life. The opening night party was held in the theater basement, with his producer Judd Apatow, Josh Radnor and Colin Quinn among the guests. Beer and wine, plus pizzas, mini cupcakes and cookies were served.


There was a Meet & Greet for The Q Brothers Othello Remix, at the Westside Theatre, presented by John Leguizamo, and they performed a selection of the show starring four talented actors and a DJ. It opens on November 16, and I look forward to opening nigh


The New York Pops presented a wonderful program The Musical World of Lerner and Loewe, at Carnegie Hall. Selections from five of their great Broadway and film musicals were sung by three terrific singers, Colin Donnell, Nathan Gunn and Laura Osnes with the Essential Voices USA choir. The orchestra, directed by Steven Reineke, accompanied them. It was a memorable evening.


Film Forum presented a press preview of Portrait of a Garden, by Rosie Stapel, Netherlands, 2016. It is beautifully documentary, filmed over one year, of a garden on an estate founded in 1630, now owned by Daan van der Have, and tended by an 85-year-old pruning master, Jan Freriks. We see them planting a multitude of vegetables, and watch them grow over the year. It is a fascinating look at two people and their workers, who love gardening and producing wonderful food, that grows naturally. It is a charming film and the two gentlemen are a joy to watch and listen to.


The Guggenheim Museum is presenting a fascinating exhibition of modern works, grids and stripes, of Agnes Martin: Oct 7, 2016-Jan 11. 2017. Her work is impressive, and leaves a tranquil affect on the viewer.


I received a copy of  Show and Tell: The New Book of Broadway Anecdotes, by Ken Bloom. by Oxford University Press. It contains many hilarious anecdotes, and some sad ones, about life in the theatre community. The author reveals the insecurities, pettiness and jealousy of many actors on stage, in rehearsal, on tour, and in auditions. It is a fascinating insight into the theatre world. The playwrights, producers, directors and other members of the creative team are also included in this tale of much bad behavior. Theatre fans will enjoy this entertaining book, and gossip lovers will delight in repeating the scurrilous details of many of the popular celebrities mentioned in the book.
