Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben April 7, 2018

 

 

Aubrey Reuben

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

April 7, 2018



Three Tall Women
, by Edward Albee, at the Golden Theatre, was first presented Off-Broadway. It is now appearing on Broadway, with a magnificent actress, Glenda Jackson, heading the three member cast, directed by Joe Mantello. In May, she will be 82-years-old, and gives an outstanding performance. She will surely by nominated for a Tony Award, and could, perhaps, win. The almost two hour play is in two acts, without an intermission. In the first act, she is a 92-year-old wealthy, dying widow, whose mind is wandering. Her caretaker (the always wonderful Laurie Metcalf) and a young lawyer (Alison Pill) are with her in her elegant bedroom, designed by Miriam Buether. The second act , the three ladies are the same person. Pill is 26-years-old, yearning for love. Metcalf is 52-years-old, embittered and unhappy, especially with her son, who abandoned the family. Jackson, in marvelous, healthy shape, as the future dying old lady, reflects on her life. A silent young man appears in her bedroom to kiss her goodbye. This actor is not named in the program, but takes a curtain call with the three superb actresses. As Jackson turns into a self-centered old lady, hating everyone, including her son, we are forced to hear every cliche about health, death, jewelry, sex, male and female misbehavior. The dialogue, is occasionally quite funny. But the audience does not care. They give a well deserved standing ovation for three fine actresses.
 

Frozen, music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, book by Jennifer Lee, at the St. James Theatre, is a musical, based on a Disney animated film, which I did not see. The night I attended, the theater was packed with parents and their children. Judging from their reaction, the spectacular production was a rousing success. The two female leads, Cassie Levy and Patti Murin, have beautiful voices, and sing wonderfully. The entire cast directed by Michael Grandage, with choreography by Rob Ashford, perform excellently. It is a silly fairy tale about two sisters, played by the two stars mentioned above, but it is highly entertaining. The music is pleasant, and the audience seems to have a good time. After all the serious, grim depressing shows in the theater this season, it is a simple joy to delight in a pleasant, painless experience, thanks to Disney.

 

Bobbie Clearly, by Alex Lubischer, at the Black Box Theatre at the Miriam and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, is a play with eleven cast members, directed by Will Davis. One character kills a classmate in the middle of a cornfield in Milton, Nebraska. Years after the incident, a cop, a nurse, the co-captains of a dance team, and others, including the murderer himself are ready to tell you their sides of the story. Unfortunately, it is a convoluted story, and many of the performers are uninteresting. Most spectators would be well advised to avoid this rural town.
 

Goldstein, book by Charlie Schulman, music and lyrics  by Michael Roberts, at Actors Temple Theatre, is a modest 90-minute musical, with a seven member cast, directed by Brad Rouse.

A young man writes a book about three generations of his Jewish family. The music and the singing are pleasant, without being memorable, and the book is filled with the usual cliches about Jewish life in America.

The book party for The Geraldo Show: A Memoir took place at Del Frisco, 1221 Avenue of the Americas. It is an autobiography about Geraldo Rivera's life and adventures as a broadcast journalist for 48 years. It is a fascinating history of meeting many of the most famous world celebrities, including President Trump, It was hosted by Sean Hannity (two photos below), and the venue was crowded with Geraldo's friends and family. Among them, were Bo Dietl, Andrew Stein, Adam DeshowitzAdam Buchman, plus many others too numerous to name. Delicious hors d'oeuvres and cocktails were served. It was splendid event.

 

A cocktail party was held at the Hayes Theatre for David Rockwell, whose scenic design is on view at Lobby Hero. There was a conversation about designing for a new generation in theater afterwards with Rockwell and Artistic Director Carole Rothman and Alex Poots. It was a lovely event.

 

Hitler's Hollywood, written and directed by Rudiger Suchsland, Germany, 2017, shows the influence of American films on German films in the Age of Propaganda from1933-1945. The film clips are fascinating to watch. Even the musicals are imitations of the great American film musicals. The Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels was the mastermind of their productions, and how clever he was in manipulating the German people into believing they were a master race. There is also archival newsreel selections, which show the rise of anti-semitism, with its persecution of Jews, and scenes of World War II. It is a remarkable film, which leaves an indelible impression on the viewer. It will be screened at Film Forum April 11-17.

 

This is Our Land, by Lucas Belvaux, France/Belgium, 2017, is a one of the finest films that I have seen this year. It is a serious look at right wing politics in France, where a naive single mother (Emilie Dequenne) is persuaded to run for mayor in a small town. The acting is magnificent, especially that of Emilie Dequenne and Andre Dussollier as a doctor who persuades her to run. In a period of childish movies, it is a pleasure to watch an intelligent film. It will open April 18-May 1 at Film Forum. Do not miss it!

 

58th Street Library presented Darkest Hour, by Joe Wright, UK & U.S, 2017, stars Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in 1940. He gives a brilliant performance, and was rewarded by winning an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor. I lived in Manchester in 1940, and survived the German Blitz. One night, eight bombs fell on my street. It was a crucial time, and Churchill inspired the nation. It is a marvelous film.
