Black Tie International:

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben

232 West 48th St. Thursday night. 01-23-14


 
 
On Broadway, Outside Mullingar, by John Patrick Shanley, at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, is an intermissionless, short play, with a wonderful scenic design by John Lee Beatty showing two kitchens in two Irish farmhouses, a bedroom and  outdoor scenes. The play takes place in farm country in Ireland in recent times. A timid 42-year-old farmer (Brian F. O'Byrne) and an aggressive, unmarried neighbor (Debra Messing), six years younger, are the subjects of this dull, uninteresting romantic play. Two elderly characters also populate this mildly amusing 95-minutes, which seem much longer.

 
Off Broadway, Craving for Travel, by Greg Edwards & Andy Sandberg, takes place in two travel agents' offices. In the two actor play, when one actor speaks as the travel agent on the telephone, the other acts as a client. This goes on for 75 interminable minutes. The customers are silly and irritating, as irritating as the incessant ringing of the telephones.

Row After Row, by Jessica Dickey, has three characters, who sit in a pub, after reenacting a scene from the battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania 
during the American Civil War. One of the men and the woman are, particularly, unpleasant, as they drink beers and argue. They are not good company for 90-minutes. The opening night party at Hurley's Saloon, however, was very pleasant.

A Meet & Greet was held for AMAS Musical Theatre's musical The Countess of Storyville, starring Vivian Reed and Deborah Cox. I eagerly await to see it performed at the Peter J. Sharp Theatre at Playwrights Horizons from February 12 - 15.


The Carnegie Deli held an unveiling of a delicious sandwich for Handle With Care star Carol Lawrence. The enormous Brisket of Beef sandwich was superb, and the other three members of the cast of the delightful comedy and the playwright joined Carol to taste her now famous sandwich.
 
 
Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema February 5-16. I attended two press screenings. Mother Joan of the Angels, by Jerzy Kawalerowicz, 1961, is an overlong tale of a young priest, sent to a convent, where the nuns are possessed by the devil. It is a morbid film, which sadomasochists will enjoy, especially the scenes of flagellation. For the priest, the gruesome film ends tragically. 

 
The Saragossa Manuscript, by Wojciech Has, 1965, is another overlong film (182 minutes), about two soldiers finding an abandoned book in a bombed out inn, which tells the fantastic tale of one of the soldier's grandfather. We follow his surreal adventures in Spain, where we see many scenes of skulls, dead hanging bodies and meet strange people. I haven't the slightest idea what the film is about, although it is said to be based on one of the greatest works of world literature. Since I admire Scorsese, I will accept his two film choices that I attended, but I, truly, can't recommend either one of them.

 
The Academy Awards nominations were announced this past week, and the nine best pictures seem intelligent choices. Having reviewed only four of them, I dropped by to see The Wolf on Wall Street and August: Osage County. The first is directed by Martin Scorsese about the fraudulent stock broker Jordan Belfort (played by Leonardo DiCaprio). Both director and actor as leading actor, plus Jonah Hill as supporting actor, received well deserved Oscar nominations. DeCaprio gives a brilliant performance. The second film, based on the Tony winning play, is a claustrophobic look at a dysfunctional, unpleasant family, revealing dark secrets after the funeral of a father. Meryl Streep as leading actress andJulia Roberts as supporting actress received nominations, and they are a delight to watch battling each other, and the rest of the cast is equally superb.
