Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - December 23, 2017


 

 


On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
December 23, 2017

 

Happy Holidays and I wish everyone a healthy and prosperous 2018

 


Off-Broadway, Harry Clarke, by David Cale, at the Vineyard Theatre, is a one man play starring Bill Crudup, directed by Leigh Silverman. At 8-years of age in South Bend , Indiana, he assumes an English accent, and later changes his name to the title character. He insinuates himself in society on the East coast, and engages in drugs, bisexuality, vulgar language and profanity. For the talented actor, it more of an acting exercise than an 80-minute play.


 

On Broadway, Farinelli and the King, by Claire van Kampen, at the Belasco Theatre, is an historical drama about King Philippe V of Spain (1683-1746), who was mad, and could not sleep, and his wife persuaded a famous castrato Farinelli (acted by Sam Crane and sung by countertenor Iestyn Davies) to come to the court and sing to him. His singing helped the king sleep. For people who like costume dramas, this play may suffice. For people who enjoy listening to arias by Handel, this may be their cup of tea. For people who enjoy Mark Rylance, as the king, cavorting on stage, and breaking the fourth wall in the beginning of the second act by talking to the audience seated in the first rows, they may care for his performance. Otherwise, it is an overlong production, which would not thrill a typical Broadway audience. Among the guests opening night whom I chatted with at the theatre were Jim  Dale, Simon Jones. Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, who sat next to me, and Joel Grey, (photobelow) who sat behind me.


 

A wonderful evening was held at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, where Jerry Zaks (photo below) was honored at Broadway: A Jewish American Legacy Winter Gala Concert. It began with a marvelous reception with delicious food, wine and cocktails. The concert in the Edmond J. Safra Hall, presented by the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, featured many Broadway performers, like David Hyde Pierce, Terrence Mann, Douglas Sills, Ron Rifkin, Sheldon Harnick, Gavin Creel, Katrina Lenk, Liz Larsen, Judy Blazer and many more singing popular Broadway songs in English and Yiddish.

Victor Garber presented the award to Jerry. The evening concluded with a dessert reception after the concert. The end of a perfect evening.


Ballet fans rejoice! The Film Forum presented a press screening of Anatomy of a Male Ballet Dancer, by David Barba & James Pellerito, USA, 2017, which will be shown January 3-16. It captures 20 years of  Marcelo Gomes, the Brazilian leading dancer with American Ballet Theatre (ABT). It is a splendid film. We see film of his attraction to ballet as a child growing up in Rio de Janeiro, his ballet studies in Florida, and at the Paris Ballet School, his rehearsals and performances around the world in ballets like Swan Lake, Don Quixote, Giselle and La Bayadere. It is like a travelogue, when we see him perform in Brazil, Russia, Greece and Japan. We also learn about his family in Brazil and his personal life in New York City. He speaks candidly about his emotions and the injuries that a dancer suffers. It is one of the finest films ever produced about ballet. Do not miss it!

 

The Columbus Library presented White Christmas, by Michael Curtiz, USA, 1954, starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Vera-Ellen and Rosemary Clooney. It is the perfect film for  the holiday season. The four stars wind up in Vermont at an inn, which is facing bankruptcy owned by the male stars' former general from World War II. They decide to put on a show to save the inn. The film is full of pleasant songs by Irving Berlin, wonderful dances and, of course, the immortal song of the title.

 

The library at Lincoln Center presented On the Waterfront, by Elia Kazan, USA, 1954, for which Leonard Bernstein composed the music. Marlon Brando and Eve Marie Saint star in this wonderful film about the tough lives on the docks of New York, where corrupt union officials stop at nothing to steal, murder, and stay in power. The acting is superb. The film, director and two stars all won Oscars.
