Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -January 18, 2014

 



Aubrey Reuben




On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
January 18, 2014

01-13-14 Sting and Trudie Styler at the opening night party for "Beautiful - The Carole King Musical" at Cipriani. 110 East 42nd St. Sunday night. 01-12-14


 
On Broadway. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, book by Douglas McGrath, words and music by Gerry Goffin & Carole King and Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, recreates a short period in the composer's life at the age of 16 in Brooklyn, when she (a superb Jessie Mueller) wrote her first hit, got married at 17, had her first baby, and formed a partnership with her lyricist husband, Gerry Goffin (Jake Epstein), which ended unhappily . The songs she wrote became classics, and throughout the musical, we hear the most famous, as well as those composed by their composing rival friends, Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann (played by Anika Larsen and Jarrod Spector). The cast, singers and dancers, are excellent, under Marc Bruni's direction. It is a pleasant production, and the audience will leave the theatre humming or singing famous songs, like You've Got A Friendand So Far Away. The opening night party at Cipriani 42nd St. attracted many celebrities like Sting, and wife Trudie Styler, NYC Police Chief Bill Bratton and wife Rikki Klieman.

 
A revival of Machinal, by Sophie Treadwell, is given a first rate production at the American Airlines Theatre. The set design by Es Devlin, showing nine scenes on a revolving turntable, is spectacular. That said, it is basically a depressing play, with irritating dialogue. It is based on on the true story of Ruth Snyder, who was the first woman executed in the electric chair for murdering her husband. The play was presented 86 years ago on Broadway and it made the playwright famous. Today, it is just an historical oddity. Rebecca Hallplays the neurotic young woman, and we watch her working in a mindless job, living with a nagging mother, marrying her dull boss, whom she doesn't love, giving birth to a child she doesn't want, having an affair with a young man, and finally killing her husband and being sentenced to death. Hall gives a remarkable performance, but it is a 105 minutes of gloom.

 
Off-Broadway, The Acting Company presented a one night staged reading of The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard, directed by Ian Belknap. The excellent cast was headed by John Glover. It is an amusing play, not seen in New York in many years. A reception followed for the contented audience.

 
A revival of Loot, by Joe Orton, is a farce about a dead body, stolen money and a devious policeman. When first produced in the 1960s, it was considered shocking. Today, it is just mildly amusing. The production by the Red Bull Theater features a fine cast, expertly directed by Jesse Berger. The opening night party at A.O.C. attracted many wonderful stage actors like Olympia Dukakis, Laila Robins and Reed Birney.

 
The York Theatre's wonderful Musicals in Mufti opened the season with Sheldon Harnick's A World to Win, with four excellent performers Kerry Conte, Jason Graae, Rhyn McLemore and Aaron Serotsky, accompanied at the piano by Jeffrey Saver. It was a revue of Harnick's songs from famous Broadway shows like Fiddler on the Roof. His professional life was related by the cast. It was delightful. Among the guests at the opening night party at the theatre were Charles Strouse and Sherman Yellen.

The production by the Red Bull Theater features a fine cast, expertly directed by Jesse Berger. The opening night party at A.O.C. attracted many wonderful stage actors like Olympia Dukakis, Laila Robins and Reed Birney.

 
A delicious sit down three course dinner at Philip Marie, 569 Hudson St, was served to celebrate Coco Brown The Brightest Star in the Galaxy, who is in training for a space trip for the Space Expedition Corporation in 2015. The charming lady, a former star of adult films, was the center of attraction, and, although born in Toledo, Ohio, now for the past 12 years, lives in Germany with her German husband. After tasting a choice of appetizers, the main course was either pork, or chicken or salmon or a special Marie's Farmer pasta, followed by dessert, accompanied by fine wines. It was a delightful event.

 
Sofia Italian Grill, 42 West 48th St, had a tasting for the press. Chef Michele Orsino prepared exquisite hors d'oeuvres, accompanied by fine wines. Among the guests at this festive event were Coco Brown and mystery novel writer Carol Higgins Clark. This newly opened two levels restaurant is beautiful. It moved from the theatre district, where it had been popular for many years. It will be very popular on West 48th St. also.

 
Film Forum is presenting My Darling Clementine, by John Ford, USA, 1946, from January 24-30. It is one of the director's greatest films. It features a wonderful cast, starring a superb Henry Fonda as Wyatt Earp and Victor Mature as Doc Holliday, plus the beautiful Linda Darnell. This magnificent Western ends on a high note with the Gunfight at O. K. Corral. It has many memorable moments and intelligent dialogue, that the viewer will enjoy. 

 
Film Forum is also presenting The Lady from Shanghai, by Orson Welles, USA, 1948 from January 31-February 6. The film was considered a flop when it was first released. One can understand why, in spite of the presence of the glamorous Rita Hayworth. The murder mystery makes no sense and is completely unbelievable. It seems that the director was just indulging himself. However, now there are certain scenes, which reveal the director's talents; in particular, the finale that takes place in a House of Mirrors. It is great cinematic photography.
