Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - October 1, 2016


Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
October 1, 2016


It was bound to happen. Modern technology caught up with Broadway. Audience members were given headphones to listen to The Encounter, conceived, directed and performed by Simon McBurney, at the Golden Theatre. For almost two hours without an intermission, we see an almost empty stage, with a table, a chair and a few microphones, and listen to recorded voices and sounds, which tells the story of Loren McIntyre, a photographer on assignment by the National Geographic to photograph the Mayoruna tribe, who disappeared in the Amazon jungle to avoid the white people who want to steal their oil. It is a horror story. His camera is destroyed by a monkey. The tribe destroys all their possessions, and McIntyre's also, for religious reasons. There is a dangerous jaguar hunt. He is covered by ants, and there is  a repulsive session with frogs. He suffers hunger. McBurney is the only cast member on stage, and he moves all over the stage, climaxing in removing his shirt while jogging to cast a spell on the tribe. Broadway deserves more.


Off-Broadway, All The Ways To Say I Love You, by Neil LaBute, at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, a production of the MCC Theater, is a one woman, short play, lasting about sixty minutes, starring Judith Light. She plays a high school teacher, who commits a serious indiscretion with a pupil. Complications ensue. Light is superb, directed by Leigh Silverman. The opening night party took place at Sushi Samba, 87 7th Avenue South, with guests Jeffrey Tambor,,Walter Bobbie and Jennifer Mudge among many others. It was a lovely party


Producer/Founding Artistic Director Susan Charlotte presented a delightful Food For Thought Production at The 3 West Club, 3 West 51st St. Dick Cavett and Louise Lasser

performed Amicable Parting, by George S. Kaufman, and Carole Shelley performed The Waltz, by Dorothy Parker. It was a pleasant event.

The New York City Ballet presented a magnificent Jewels, choreography by George Balanchine. It consists of three parts. Emeralds. music of Gabriel Faure, has gorgeous green scenery by Peter Harvey and green costumes by Karinska, both did all three parts. Rubies, music by Igor Stravinsky, with sexy red costumes, and Diamonds, music by Peter Ilyitch Tschaikovsky, were glorious to behold. The soloists in each part were marvelous. All deserve to be mentioned, but outstanding were Megan Fairchild, Joaquin de Luz, and especially Savannah Lowery in Rubies, and Teresa Reichlen and Russell Janzen in Diamonds. Andrew Litton conducted the orchestra. What a brilliant company we are privileged to see in New York!



Career Transition For Dancers presented a program for The Actors Fund The 31st Anniversary Jubilee, honoring Joe Lanteri (photo below) and philanthropists Donald and Barbara Tober, dedicated to the memory of former CTFD President Alex Dube, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel. It was one of the finest dance programs I have ever seen. Among the many performers were Tommy Tune, Bebe Neuwirth, and Desmond Richardson, produced and directed by Ann Marie DeAngelo, and among the guests were RobertFairchild and Leanne Cope. President and CEO Joseph P. Benincasa is to be congratulated for a splendid evening.

Cicely Tyson
 was honored by The American Theatre Wing at the Plaza Hotel, the same night as The Actors Fund Gala. As I love Cicely, I rushed over to hug her and photograph the wonderful actress and friend. Among the many guests, who came to honor her wereLaTanya Richardson Jackson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Cynthia Erivo.  The honor was well deserved.


NASCAR Foundation held its first ever gala at the Marriott Marquis, honoring Chairman of NBC Sports Group Mark Lazurus. The France family were present on this occasion. I photographed the NASCAR Chairman & CEO Brian France, NASCAR Hall of FamerRusty Wallace and many of the drivers. It was another lovely event.


The MOMS, Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein (photo below), held a MAMARAZZI event at The Carlyle Hotel for Kristin Chenoweth and her new album The Art of Elegance. She performed two songs, and then answered questions from in audience in a Q & A. Warriors in Pink were the partners on this occasion, and there were speakers, who spoke about Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Chenoweth also mentioned how the disease has affected her family and friends. There were many breast cancer survivors and their families present. It was a very important event, and we can only hope this dreadful disease will be conquered soon.


I went to the opening night party of The Trial of the American President, by Dick Tarlow, at the Lindeman, 410 West 42nd St. The three member cast and the director and playwright all enjoyed an open bar and delicious hors d'oeuvres. As Cole Porter wrote "It was a swell party".


The Morgan Library & Museum is one of my favorite buildings in New York. I attended a press preview of Dubuffet Drawings, 1935-1962. The French artist produced imaginative works of childlike art, grafitti, portraits, Bedouin scenes, female nudes and more. Do not miss it. It will be on display until January 2, 2017.
