Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -July 25, 2015


 

 

Aubrey Reuben

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

July 25, 2015

 
Off-Broadway, Of Good Stock, by Melissa Ross, at the Manhattan Theatre Club, is a play about three sisters in a reunion in a family home in Cape Cod. Each has a man in her life. They all have problems, and it is a typical play about a dysfunctional family. In the second act, there is a scene where the sister scream, cuss and get drunk. It is very unpleasant and hard on the ears. The six actors perform well, directed by Lynne Meadow.

 
Threesome, by Yussef El Guindi, at the 59E59 Theatre, begins as an amusing sex comedy, but develops into a serious drama about the treatment of women in Moslem, i.e. Egyptian, and American society. The three member cast, Alia Attallah, Quinn Franzenand Karan Oberoi, are excellent, under the expert direction of Chris Coleman.

 
The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey, written and performed by James Lecesne, at the Westside Theatre, opens on Monday, July 27. My comments will be in my next column.

 
There was a Meet & Greet for the cast and creative team of MCC Theater's The Legend of Georgia McBride, by Matthew Lopez. The five member cast is directed by Mike Donahue, and will open on September 9. I eagerly await the opening. By the way, the press was offered two alcoholic drinks. I raise my glass to toast their thoughtfulness. I only drink on two occasions, when I am alone or with someone.

 
MoMA is presenting Glorious Technicolor: From George Eastman House and Beyond June 5-August 5. The Garden of Allah, by Richard Boleslawski, USA, 1936, features an exotic Marlene Dietrich, who goes to the Sahara desert to find herself, and instead finds Charles Boyer, a former Trappist monk, who broke his vows and fled the monastery. They marry, but he leaves her to return to the monastery. It is a silly film, but entertaining, with lots of sand, camels, Arabs and Tilly Losch as a sexy dancer in a night club.

 
 

 

 

Tonight and Every Night, by Victor Saville, USA, 1945, is about the legendary theatre in London that never closed during the blitz in World War II. Rita Hayworth is the star of the show and falls in love with an RAF pilot, Lee Bowman. There are lots of songs and dancing, but two selections stand out. A dancer from Manchester, Marc Platt auditions with a brilliant routine to classical music plus to a speech by Hitler, and is hired to dance with Hayworth and Janet Blair, and Professor Lamberti as the Fred, the Great Waldo does a hilarious routine with his xylophone. 


 
Saskatchewan/O'Rourke of the Royal Mounted, by Raoul Walsh, USA, 1954, is a picturesque technicolor film filmed on location in Canada. The scenery is spectacular and worth the price of admission. The story is a typical action packed cowboy versus indians picture; only in this case, the cowboys are replaced by Canadian Mounted Police. Alan Ladd stars and Shelley Winters is the love interest. It is entertaining, but that scenery is breathtaking.

 
MoMA is presenting Mexico at Midnight: Film Noir from Mexican Cinema's Golden Age July 23-29. La Diosa Arrodillada (The Kneeling Goddess), by Roberto Gavaldon, Mexico, 1947, is an overlong melodrama starring two of the most famous Mexican film stars at that time. Arturo de Cordova is a married man having an affair with a femme fatale Maria Felix. When his wife dies, he is suspected of murder. It is a convoluted story, that makes little sense. However, there is a scene in a nightclub in Panama, where Felix performs in cabaret. She reveals limited talent singing and dancing. She is no Rita Hayworth! But, she is beautiful.

 
A superb exhibition Sinatra: An American Icon is on display at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. With it, films are being shown in the Bruno Walter Auditorium. We saw a second film The Manchurian Candidate, by John Frankenheimer, USA, 1962, introduced by the composer of the music of the film, David Amram, a lively 85-year-old. The film is an exciting thriller about brain washing during the Korean War in 1952. A soldier Lawrence Harvey is captured with his majorFrank Sinatra, and is brain washed to be an assassin, when he is returned to the United States. Angela Lansbury plays his devious mother. The three actors are superb in this excellent film.
