Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -June 28, 2014

 



Aubrey Reuben




On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
June 28, 2014

06-24-14 Honorees Andy Karl and Anika Noni Rose received the Inside Broadway 2014 Broadway Beacon Awards at JW Marriott Essex House. 160 Central Park South. Monday night. 06-23-14
 

 





Off-Broadway, When We Were Young and Unafraid, by Sarah Treem, is an overlong, overstuffed play, that takes place in 1972 in a bed and breakfast on an island off the coast of Seattle. The owner Cherry Jones, when not baking muffins, gives shelter to abused women, one of whom is Zoe Kazan. The endless themes include domestic abuse, abortion, lesbianism, racism, fellatio, divorce and others too numerous to mention. Each actor preaches relentlessly. It is exhausting, and totally unbelievable.

 
Donogoo, by Jules Romains, translated and directed by Gus Kaikkonen, is a comedy in 23 tableaux (scenes). Unfortunately, it is not very funny, and the play itself is rather dull.  It is about a scheme to get unsuspecting people to invest in a gold mine in a non-existant town in Brazil. However, the many projections by Roger Hanna & Price Johnston are imaginative and quite well done, and are a pleasure to see
 
 
American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented Giselle, music by Adolphe Adam, staged by Kevin McKenzie. It is a delightful production, made even more enchanting by the presence of Alina Cojocaru in the title role. She is a joy to behold, charming and perfect in technique. David Hallberg, substituting for Herman Cornejo, partnered her expertly. Yuriko Kajiya was impressive in the Peasant Pas de Deux in the first act. The wilis, led by Stella Abrea, were superb. It was a memorable performance. 

 
ABT also presented Swan Lake, music by Tchaikovsky, choreography by Kevin McKenzie. Alina Cojocaru was injured and Hee Seo replaced her. This was the second time this week, because Gillian Murphy was injured during the opening night performance, and Hee Seo was called on to replace her during that performance. Odette-Odile is a very demanding role and Hee Seo is scheduled to perform on June 28. She gave a very competent performance on Friday night, and I wish her good luck tonight if she performs as scheduled. Robert Bolle replaced Herman Cornejo as Prince Siegried and was an ardent, supportive prince.

 
The Inside Broadway 2014 Broadway Beacon Awards at the JW Marriott Essex House was a splendid affair. The reception featured delicious food and exquisite wines, followed by the awards ceremony and entertainment. was a splendid affair. Among the honorees were Andy Karl and Anika Noni Rose, who received their well deserved awards.

 
The CD release party for Himself and Nora was held at 353 West. Among the guests were director Michael Bush, composer, lyricist and book Jonathan Brielle, Liliane Montevecchi and James Morgan. It was a delightful event.

 
I rarely eat cereal, but Kellogg's Cereal and Milk held a week of tastings at a venue on Seventh Ave and 54th St. I tasted a Kellogg's Recharge Bar Combo called Berry au Lait, consisting of Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats, Milk Bar Cereal Milk, ground coffee and fresh raspberries. It was delicious. I returned to make one of my own combinations with Kellogg's Raisin Bran, Milk Bar Cereal Milk, Fresh Blueberries and Strawberries. Again, it was scrumptious. I guess I will be eating lots of Kellogg's Cereal and Milk for the rest of my life.

The Film Society at Lincoln Center is presenting press screenings of the 13th New York Asian Film Festival, June 27-July 14. A press conference was held at he Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office with Film Director Alan Mak Overhead 3,  director/screenwriter  Felix Chong Overhead 3 and actress Sandra Ng Golden Chicken. It was an informative session, and the speakers were amusing and charming..
 

MoMA is presenting ongoing An Auteurist History of Film. Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes (Aguirre, the Wrath of God), by Werner Herzog, Germany, 1973, is an imaginative story of the historical conquistador of the title (Klaus Kinski) leading his men while searching for the fabled City of Gold, El Dorado, along the Amazon River. The expedition is a disaster. As they progress on a large raft along the river, they are afflicted with hunger, fever, hallucinations, and they are all eventually killed by the natives, attacking them with spears and arrows. It is a grim look at a brutal period in the history of the conquest of Latin America by Spain.


 
Film Life's 18th Annual American Black Film Festival presented Life Essentials with Ruby Dee, by Muta' Ali, U.S.A. 2014, a deeply personal documentary by her grandson. After the death of his grandfatherOssie Davis, the grandson interviews his grandmother, Ruby Dee, for guidance in his own life. Besides receiving her wisdom after a successful 56 years of marriage, a fulfilling career in the Arts on stage, film and television, and an active political leadership in the Civil Rights Movement in the fight for equal rights, he has made a charming, delightful film. It is truly the jewel of the festival. Filmgoers will be inspired by this magnificent couple, and understand why they were considered the king and queen of Black Hollywood. I knew them, wrote about them, photographed them, admired them, and I miss them.

 
Marius, by Daniel Auteuil, France, 2013, is based on the writings of Marcel Pagnol. The first film of a trilogy is about a young man (Raphael Personnaz), working in his father's bar, yearning to go to sea to see the world, but torn between leaving and marrying his childhood sweetheart, Fanny (Victoire Belezy). The resolution of this conflict is the main story. However, the film is full of a wonderful assortment of characters, that includes his father Cesar (Daniel Auteul), Fanny's worried mother (Marie-Anne Chazel), a wealthy business man (Jean-Pierre Darroussin), who would like to marry Fanny, and many more. The acting is superb, the dialogue is intelligent and realistic, the plot is absorbing and the photography is beautiful. I eagerly await the second film entitled Fanny.

 
Film Forum is presenting A Hard Day's Night, by Richard Lester, U.K. 1964, from July 4 to July 17 as a 50th Anniversary release. I attended a press screening of the newly restored film with new surround sound. The film is about the Beatles taking a train journey to play a television concert in London. It is a chaotic series of adventures by the four young men. The film was made immediately after their astounding success in the United States. For avid Beatles fans, the highlight is the closing concert in the television studio, where they perform a series of their popular songs. 50 years later, while one must give credit for all the experimental techniques employed by the film, one realizes that the film itself reveals that the four young men are really devoid of much personality and charisma. The extended scenes of Ringo alone wandering around London, going into a pub, strolling by a canal and being arrested is not funny, just pointless, and Wilfred Brambell, playing Paul McCartney's grandfather, is just plain annoying and irritating. Fortunately, the hysterical teenage girls grew up and the Beatles broke up, and sanity returned to the popular music world. However, as an historical document of a certain period in popular music, the film is worth a visit.
