Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -September 26, 2015



Aubrey Reuben

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

September 26, 2015


Off-Broadway, The New Morality, by Harold Chapin, directed by Jonathan Bank, is a production of the Mint Theater Company. It is amusing, well acted play about a woman living on a houseboat, insulting a neighbor on a another houseboat on the Thames river. Problems ensue between the two families. All the actors are excellent, but Ned Noyes steals the show in the third act as the drunken husband of the insulted wife. The opening night party at West Bank Cafe was very pleasant with the cast being congratulated by friends and relatives.

The Christians, by Lucas Hnath, directed by Les Waters, at Playwrights Horizons, is a play that takes place in a church. The pastor (Andrew Garman) shocks his congregation with his sermon, and all sorts of problems arise. It is well acted, and a large choir sing wonderfully.

There was a photo op for Lost Girls, by John Pollono, directed by Jo Bonney, an MCC Theater production, which opens on November 9. It has a great cast, starring Piper Perabo, and I eagerly await the opening night.

I attended a press preview at the Jewish Museum, 1109 Fifth Avenue, of four wonderful exhibitions. The Power of Pictures: Early Soviet Photography. Early Soviet Film September 25, 2015 - February 7, 2016, The Television Project: Picturing a People until February 14, 2016, Becoming Jewish: Warhol's Li & Marilyn September 25, 2015 - February 7, 2016, and Masterpieces & Curiosities: Alfred Stieglitz's The Steerage until February 14 are four that you must not miss. Seeing clips on television of Beverly Sills, Gertrude Berg, and Barbra Streisand among others are fascinating, but the photos, magazine covers, and Andy Warhol's paintings of Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe are alone worth the price of admission.

I attended Making Musical Waves, a culinary and musical gala, featuring chef Ben Pollinger, benefiting Copland House at Oceana, 120 West 49th St. I photographed Ben displaying his wonderful cookbook School of Fish.
There was a delicious seafood dinner served, accompanied by fine wines, and musical selections were played between courses. It was a delightful evening of good food and beautiful music. Aaron Copland would have been proud.

There was a lovely cookbook party for Domestic Chic, by celebrity chef Kristin Sollenne and the debut of her kitchen couture apron line CELLINI at Il Bastardo, 191 Seventh Avenue, with exquisite wines and delicious hors d'oeuvres. On Saturday, September 26, at 1 PM, Kristin will be at Bloomingdales for a culinary demonstration

The 53rd New York Film Festival September 25-October 14 continued its press screenings with Ingrid Bergman in Her Own Words, by Stig Bjorkman, Sweden, 2015. It is a documentary about the actress, who kept everything from the day she was born to her untimely death at 67 years of age. It includes diaries, letters, photographs and film. She was an avid photographer. An actress reads her words, and her four children appear to discuss her life as a mother. If you enjoy watching private home movies, you may find this overlong documentary interesting. Although she appeared to have a successful public life as a film and stage actress, she actually had a very unhappy private life. She had many unsatisfying love affairs and marriages, and separated herself from her four children, especially her first child Pia, for many years, to pursue her career.

Heaven Can Wait, by Ernst Lubitsch, USA, 1943, is a delightful film, about an old man (Don Ameche) arriving at the entrance to hell.He is interviewed by Satan to gain admittance. He relates his life, where he acted as a type of Casanova. However, he is married for 25 years to a lovely wife (Gene Tierney) and becomes relatively faithful. It is a charming film, with witty dialogue, and entertaining characters. It is one of the lovely films, that Hollywood produced, without vulgarity, filthy language or smutty scenes.

Microbe & Gasoline, by Michel Gondry, France 2015, is a film about two high school students, who become friends and cannot adjust to a normal life. One, nicknamed Microbe, is small and a talented artist, obsessed with sex, and the other, nicknamed Gasoline, is a skilled mechanic, who creates a caravan type car. Thus, begins a road trip, in which they travel through France. It is not an enjoyable film, and the two children are obnoxious. There adventures are ridiculous and unbelievable. The photography is lovely, and as a travelogue, it is pleasant to look at.
