Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - June 10, 2017

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
June 10, 2017

 

Off-Broadway, The End of Longing, by Matthew Perry, at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, is an MCC production. Four cast members, directed by Lindsay Posner, play irritating, unbelievable characters. One, the playwright, acting as a photographer, is an alcoholic, who cannot utter a sentence without the f... word. What ever happened to sparkling, witty dialogue, like that of Oscar Wilde or Noel Coward? An attractive blonde is an escort, who gives him free sex. The other two characters are their friends. It is a 100-minutes, intermission-less ordeal, of multiple short scenes, each introduced by loud music, hard on one's hearing. The revolving stage is dizzying. This play could drive one to drink!

 

The 62nd Drama Desk Awards offered few surprises. Laura Linney, Kevin Kline, Bette Midler and Andy Karl all won awards as Outstanding Actors in a Play and Musical. Come From Away, Oslo, Hello, Dolly! and Jitney won Outstanding Musicals and Plays. Jenn Colella and Gavin Creel (photo below) won Featured Actors in a Musical. Bette Midler did not show up, and Kevin Kline and Danny DeVito did not pose for photos with their awards. However, the after party at the New York Marriott Marquis was wonderful, and we were able to congratulate Laura and Andy, and other winners, presenters and performers like Michael Urie the host, Cynthia Nixon, Danny Burstein, Katrina Lenk and Jane Greenwood. It was the end of a splendid night.


 

The 73rd Annual Theatre World Awards was held this year at the Imperial Theatre. It honors twelve debut performances on Broadway and Off-Broadway. Most honorees show up for the occasion, but Josh Groban, Lucas Hedges and Jeremy Secomb were unable to attend. Among the honorees, who did thank the audience, were Denee Benton, Eva Noblezada, Cobie Smulders and Christy Altomare. Among the presenters were Brian Stokes Mitchell, John Rubinstein and Tony Sheldon.


 

 

Katrina Lenk received the Dorothy Loudon Award from Lionel Larner, and Glenn Close received her Lifetime Achievement Award from Len Cariou, who also performed. 







Peter Filichia
 was the witty host, and the President of the Theatre World Awards Dale Badway thanked the audience for attending. The after party took place at the Copacabana.

 

 

Film Forum presented Moka, by Frederic Mermoud, France/Switzerland, 2016, starring Emmauelle Devos and Nathalie Baye, two magnificent French actresses. Devos seeks revenge for the death of her teenage son, killed by a car. She goes across Lake Geneva from the Swiss city Lausanne to the French town of Evian to find the lady who was driving the car. Devos is in every frame of the film, driving her car, sleeping in her car, stalking Baye, who she believes was responsible for her son's death, meeting a hustler from whom she buys a gun, making friends with Baye, her lover and her daughter, ad infinitum. It is a slow moving, dull, boring film, with a twist at the end, and with splendid acting by the two stars. The photography is lovely, and Switzerland and France are picturesque.


 

Woody Sez: The Life & Music of Woody Guthrie, devised by David M. Lutken and Nick Corley, at the Irish Repertory Theatre, is a wonderful show. Four splendid musicians, David M. Lutken, Andy Tierstein, Megan Loomis and Helen Jean Russell, who play many instruments, recall the life of the great folk singer. Nick Corley directed these marvelous performers. It was one of the best evenings that I have spent in the theater this season. The songs are a joy to listen to, sung by four magnificent singers. In the gallery upstairs there is an exhibition of Woody's life. Do not miss it! We congratulated the cast at the opening night party at Jake's Saloon, 202 9th Avenue. 
 


 

American ballet Theatre (ABT) presented Le Corsaire, staged by Anna-Marie Holmes, at the Metropolitan Opera House. Five composers contributed to the score, providing lovely music throughout the three act ballet, with the orchestra conducted by David LaMarcheChristine Shevchenko (Medora) replaced the injured Gillian Murphy, and achieved an outstanding success. She danced brilliantly, and earned tumultuous applause. She seemed to float on stage, and her turns, jumps and overall performance was a joy to watch. Daniil Simkin (Ali,  the slave) stole the second act with his magnificent jumps and turns. Alban Lendorf (Conrad, a pirate), Aaron Scott (Birbanto, a friend) and Stella Abrera (Gulnare, Medora's friend) were all equally good, and Melanie Hamrick, Lauren Post and April Giangeruso as Odalisques in the first act were just superb. It was another wonderful night at the ballet.
