On The Town With Aubrey Reuben February 29, 2020

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
February 29, 2020


NewYork City Center Encores! presented Mack & Mabel, book by Michael Stewart, music and lyrics by Jerry Herman, revised version by Francine Pascal. Jerry Herman passed away in December, 2019. If he were alive, he would have enjoyed this wonderful production. Rob Berman conducted the always marvelous Encores! orchestra, and when they played the Entr'acte of musical themes of the musical at the beginning of Act II, they received a tumultuous well-deserved ovation. Jerry, my photo of him with his Oscar appeared for several days with his obituary on where I was the Playbill photographer for eleven years, was the sweetest person I ever knew, and composed the most beautiful, melodious music of the late twentieth century on Broadway. When this musical first appeared on Broadway, it was not a success. The story of Mack, (superby played by Douglas Sills) a tyrannical silent-film director, and his relationship with Mabel (a magnificent Alexandra Socha), a comedienne, whose life ends tragically, was grim. It did not last long on Broadway. The revised version, is slightly better, and I thoroughly enjoyed the Encores! production. Directed and choreographed brilliantly by Josh Rhodes, the dance routines, which included a Hundreds of Girls, a terrific Keystone Cops number, a Pie in the Face and a Tap Your Troubles Away, were performed by an excellent ensemble. The two stars were supported by a talented cast, which included Lili Cooper, Michael Berresse and Ben Frankhauser, and were equally splendid. It is no wonder that the Encores! productions are my favorite musicals.
I photographed Julie Halston ( photo below), who hosted Broadway Belts for PFF/10th Anniversary production at Edison Ballroom. I also photographed one of my favorite Broadway stars, Bernadette Peters photo below). Among the guests were Lisa Howard, Robert Creighton and Jordan Roth, whose mother Daryl Roth received the Ralph Howard Legacy Award, It was a lovely event.
I attended the Ribbon Cutting of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's New British Galleries. Five speakers spoke at the press preview. After a delicious breakfast of British teas and pastries, we then were invited on a tour of this magnificent exhibition, which opens to the public on March 2. Queen Elizabeth II would be proud, as I am, having been born and raised in Manchester, England, of this new addition to this jewel in the crown at the wonderful Metropolitan of Art. I plan to return again and again,
Rules of Desire, is a new play by William Mastrosimone, with a three member cast, directed by William Roudebush, at the Playroom Theater, 151 West 46th St. It lasts  ninety minutes without an intermission. It takes place in an airtight room at the bottom of an aircraft carrier. A sailor has smuggled a girl on board. It will be at the theater until March 21
