Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -December 24, 2016

 

 

 


On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
December 24, 2016


 

Off-Broadway, Life is for Living: Conversations with Noel Coward, created and compiled by Simon Green, speaking and singing, and David Shrubsole, at the piano, at 59E59 Theatre, is some reminiscences of the famous English playwright, director, actor and much more, plus many of his songs. The most humorous was Place Settings and one of his most famous was London Pride. For Noel Coward lovers, the 70-minute show will satisfy.


 

The Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema presented The Nutcracker, music by Pyotr Ilich Tchaikovsky, choreography by Yuri Grigorovich, starring Anna Nikulina as Marie and Denis Rudkin as The Nutcracker-The Prince. It is a delightful production, and the two leads were brilliant. In the final pas de deux, the audience applauded repeatedly and made them return to the stage. The ensemble is, as always, magnificent. It is such a pleasure to listen to the glorious music and admire this marvelous company.
 

 

Film Society Lincoln Center presented press screenings of the 26th New York Jewish Film Festival: January 11-24. Moon in the 12th House, by Dorit Hakim, Israel, 2016, is a film about two sisters. The older one goes to Tel Aviv and works in a discoteque. The owner, her lover, is a drug addict and dealer. When the club is raided, she flees and returns to her family home in a small town. Meanwhile, her younger sister is a high school student. looking after her father, a widower, who has suffered a severe stroke and is hospitalized. Basically, it is a film about the tension between two sisters, who cannot relate to each other. It is overlong, slow moving, and there are many repetitious scenes of the younger sister swimming, feeding her father, and eating standing up in the kitchen looking out the window. There is no humor whatsoever in the film, but the acting is excellent. My Travels with Oliver, by Laurel Chiten, U.S. 2017. is a short film that precedes the opening night film above about Oliver Sachs, a famous English neurologist and writer, who is revealed to be eccentric, but pleasant. The director and Oliver take a trip together. Mr Bernstein, by Francine Zuckerman, Canada, 2015, also is also a short film based on a true story aboutLeonard Bernstein conducting an orchestra in a displaced persons camp after World War II and the effect of the music on one of the audience. Years later, Bernstein appears in New Zealand to conduct a concert, and the daughter of the displaced person interrupts the rehearsal to tell her father's story to the conductor. It is a touching story.

 


 

 

Peshmerga, by Bernard-Henri Levy, France, 2016, has the director traveling with Kurdish soldiers as they fight ISIS on the Syrian border. It is a sad commentary on the violence and the horror of war in the Middle East. Many scenes are brutally graphic, but it is true and realistic.
 


 


 


 


 






Shalom Rabin
, by Amos Gitai,  Israel, 2017, is a look at the former Prime Minister of Israel, who worked for peace between his country and Palestinians, and was, tragically, assassinated. It takes an inside look at his visit to Washington, meeting with President Clinton and other officials plus to other countries. Unfortunately, the ending is quite bizarre with strange images and footage of Nazis burning books


 

Hummus! The Movie, by Oren Rosenfeld, Israel, 2016, is an amusing film, which will delight everyone. It wanders around Israel to various towns, beautifully photographed, to focus on restaurants that make hummus, and the owners, who are dedicated to produce the finest hummus, and win every honor, including the Guinness Book of Records for the largest hummus in the world. There are also side trips to Beirut, London and Berlin. All the restauranteurs are comical characters, and quite endearing. After seeing this film, you will want to visit every restaurant and sample their hummus.

 
 

The Mid-Manhattan Library, 455 Fifth Avenue presented Written on the Wind, by Douglas Sirk, USA, 1956, a typical Hollywood melodrama, about a wealthy family with two spoilt children played by Robert Stack and Dorothy Malone, who won an Oscar for her performance as an oversexed young lady. Rock Hudson and Lauren Bacall were the leads in this overheated drama, which is quite entertaining.
 


 

The Columbus Library, 741 Tenth Ave, presented Meet Me in St. Louis, by Vincent Minnelli, USA, 1944, about a three generation family living in the city of the title in 1904, at the time of its World Fair. Judy Garland and Margaret O'Brien as her younger sister star in this sweet, sentimental musical with glorious songs, such as The Trolley Song. At this time, American soldiers were fighting in World War II in Europe and the Pacific and this film reminded them of the American Way of Life, which they were defending. It is a wonderful film, which is refreshing for the lack of vulgarity in many modern American films today.


 

I went to a photo op for the 35th Anniversary of Dreamgirls at the Michael bennett Studios, 890 Broadway. It was a pleasure to see and photograph cast members like Vondie Curtis-Hall, Lillias White and Allison Williams among many others. I had to leave early before many arrived as I had another event below to cover,. I especially wanted to photograph my old pal Sheryl Lee Ralph. Can it really be 35 years ago that I saw the original cast starring Sheryl? I must have been two-years-old at the time!


 

I had to go to Bobby Van's Steakhouse, 135 West 50th St for a VIP reception for New York Giant Damon "Snacks" Harrison and his charity I Told The Storm Foundation, The First Annual United States Marine Toys For Tots Holiday Toy Drive.Damon was interviewed for television by Andy Adler on WPIX. Between pizzas, sliders and french fries, plus wine, I enjoyed chatting with old friends like Richard Corkery, retired celebrity photographer of the Daily News. We recalled the Good Old Days when we snapped famous celebrities in New York. It was a lovely event.
