Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - July 28, 2018

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
July 28, 2018

 



 

This Ain't No Disco: A Rock Opera, music and lyrics by Stephen Trask and Peter Yanowitz, book by Trask, Yanowitz and Rick Elice, at the Linda Gross Theater, is a highly amplified production in a small theater. A large cast directed by Darko Tresnjak, with choreography by Camille A. Brown, sing and dance energetically. They recall a New York City in 1979/1980 with some performers recreating live characters like Steve Rubell who owned the discotheque Studio 54 and Steve Mass who owned Mudd Club. It is an unpleasant theatrical experience. 

Straight White Men
, by Young Jean Lee, at the Helen Hayes Theater, is a strange play with a six member cast, directed by Anna D. Shapiro. Four of the actors appear in a living room on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. There are two actresses named Person in Charge 1 and 2 who introduce the play. 
The father and three sons play childish games. They clown around throughout most of the play, which seems like a television sitcom. It's hard to understand the point of the play.


Rendez-vous in July
, by Jacques Becker, France, 1949, is a film about aimless young middle class men in Paris who hang around together and visit jazz clubs and dance to the music. Their relationships with their parents is bad as they wish to pursue their own lives. Their are many scenes of two young ladies who want to be actresses on stage in auditions, rehearsal and performance. The cast is headed by Daniel Gelin who wants to be an explorer in Africa. One leaves the film, which has an enormous cast, with a good idea of what Paris was life shortly after World War
II. Many of the films of Becker will be shown at Film Forum from August 1-16.

 

I attended a photo op and watched two scenes from Fern Hill, by Michael Tucker (photo with Jill Eikenberry below) at Theater Row Studios. The six member cast directed by Nadia Tass will open at the New Jersey Repertory Company on August 9 to September 9. Unfortunately, I cannot attend the opening, because I only review productions if I can walk there.
 

Head over Heels, songs by The Go-Go's, based on The Arcadia by Sir Philip Sidney, conceived and original book by Jeff Whitty, adapted by James Magruder, is a highly amplified production at the Hudson Theatre. The cast is directed by Michael Mayer, and choreographed by Spencer Liff. Fans of the Go-Go's may enjoy this silly show. The cast works energetically and some of singers have good voices. I left the theater unimpressed.

My Life on a Diet
, by Renee Taylor and Joseph Bologna, at the Theatre at St. Clement's, is an amusing one woman show, in which Renee relates her life. She tells us how she tried various diets and about her professional life on stage, Hollywood and television. Film clips and photographs are projected on a screen. It is a delightful, entertaining evening. Before the show, we photographed the arrivals while being served with wine, and afterwards at the lovely opening night party at Sardi's, we congratulated Renee. Among her friends at the show were Elaine May, Marlo Thomas, (photo of Renee, Elaine, Marlo below) Lee Grant  and Joy Behar.
