Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -October 24, 2015

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!

October 24, 2015

Many years ago, a modest musical was a success Off-Broadway. Now it is on Broadway. Dames at Sea, book and lyrics by George Haimsohn and Robin Miller, music by Jim Wise, directed and choreographed by Randy Skinner, at the Helen Hayes Theatre, is charming, and just plain fun. Six terrific performers, John Bolton, Mara Davi, Danny Gardner, Eloise Kropp, Lesli Margherita and Cary Tedder, tap dance, sing and act wonderfully. The music is pleasant, and you cannot help smiling as you watch the cast delight you. The story of a young girl from Utah in the 30s becoming a star on Broadway (although, the show is performed on a battleship, when the theater is destroyed) is the usual nonsense. However, the show is done with such panache, that you cannot help but be amused by two hours of enjoyable musical comedy.

Off- Broadway, Trip of Love, created, directed and choreographed by James Walski, at Stage 42, is a Las Vegas style song and dance spectacular. It is a trip down memory lane, with popular songs from the 60s, like Where the Boys Are, These Boots Are Made for Walkin', The Girl From Ipanema, Moon River and Downtown All the songs have colorful scenic designs by Walski and Robin Wagner and lovely costumes by Gregg Barnes. The seven principal singers and dancers, and the twelve member ensemble, are just fine. The ladies are beautiful and the men are handsome. They sing and dance marvelously, and are a delight to watch. 

Rothschild & Sons, music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, book by Sherman Tellen, is a production of The York Theatre Company. It is a pleasant musical, starring Robert Cuccioli as the founder of the famous banking family in the eighteenth century in Frankfurt, Germany. It is played without an intermission, and the cast is very good, under the direction of Jeffrey B. Moss. The opening night party was held at Lexicon, 226 East 54th  St,  with guests Richard Kind, Ted Chapin and Tom Meehan.



The Humans,
 by Stephen Karam, at the Laura Pels Theatre, is a production of the Roundabout Theatre Company. It opens on Sunday October 25, and my comments will appear in my next column

Cause Celebre The Sunrise Gala at 3 West Club, 3 West 51st St, was a splendid event honoring Jonathan Tunick with the Sunrise Artist Award. Susan Charlotte introduced the program, as the guests enjoyed a cocktail reception, followed by a delicious dinner. Among the many artists who attended were Louise Lasser, Danny Aiello, Fritz Weaver, Sheldon Harnick and Carole Shelley. Penny Fuller performed, accompanied by Billy Goldenberg at the piano. It was a memorable evening.

I attended American Fashion Designer Jackie Rogers Spring 2016 Collection at 10 West 56th St, which is a townhouse, the former home of Elizabeth Taylor and Mike Todd. As Rogers was a friend to Salvador Dali in Paris, the theme of the Fashion Presentation was entitled Homage to Dali. As we sipped delicious French wines, we enjoyed a superior fashion show.

Alan Alda, Candice Bergen, Elaine May and Diane Sawyer hosted a theatrical luncheon at La Grenouille, 3 East 52nd St, for Clever Little Lies and its superb cast. Patrick Pacheco moderated a press conference with playwright Joe DiPietro, director David Saint, cast members Marlo Thomas, Greg Mullavey, Kate Wetherhead and George Merrick. It was a lovely event with delicious food and fine wines.

Cover Girl for August 2015 Social Life Magazine is philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, who attended a reception in her honor at Villagio on the Park, 40 Central Park South. She looked lovely in an elegant gown. The Italian restaurant served scrumptious hors d'oeuvres, accompanied by fine wines.

I attended a press screening of Burnt, and a press conference the following morning with members of the cast. We were asked to hold our comments until October 28, where they will appear in my column on October 31.
