Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben October 13, 2018

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

October 13, 2018


 

The New York City Ballet, at the David H. Koch Theater, presented a varied program of four ballets. Pulcinella Variations, music by Igor Stravinsky, choreography by Justin Peck, gave all the soloists to display their talents, in colorful costumes by Tsumori Chisato, especially Sara Mearns and Russell Janzen in Serenata, and Sean Suozzi in TarantellaThe Bitter Earth, music by Max Richter and Clyde Otis, choreography by Christopher Wheeldon, featured Teresa Reichlen and Ask La Cour, who danced the short piece beautifully. The Runaway, music by Nico Muhly, Kanye West, Jay-Z and James Blake, with a violin and piano soloist, plus taped songs, choreography by Kyle Abraham in collaboration with NYCB, was a disappointment. The taped songs were loud and unpleasant. The costumes and fright wigs by Giles Deacon were unattractive. The program concluded on a high note with Fearful Symmetries, music by John Adams, choreography by Peter Martins, in which all the wonderful dancers displayed the magnificent technique that delights a ballet audience. Andrews Sill conducted the orchestra.

 

The New York City Ballet, at David H. Koch Theater, presented a program of three of their popular ballets. The first and the third were two ballets, with music by Leonard Bernstein, choreography by Jerome RobbinsFancy Free is about three sailors in New York City in 1944 drinking in a bar, and meeting three young ladies outside on the street. It formed the basis of the successful Broadway musical On the Town. The six dancers were greeted with a well deserved thunderous ovation. West Side Story Suite is based on another successful Broadway musical West Side Story. The dancers and singers also received well deserved applause. It tells the story of two two rival teenage gangs fighting each other on the West Side of Manhattan. The second ballet was Prodigal Son, music by Sergei Prokofiev, choreography by George Balanchine.
 





The Prodigal son (
Joaquin De Luz) leaves home, and is seduced by The Siren (Maria Kowroski). He is robbed and abandoned, and returns home sadder and wiser, and welcomed back by his father. The two leading dancers were marvelous, and the audience rewarded them with many curtain calls. Andrew Litton conducted the orchestra. It was my final visit of the fall season, and I enjoyed every program. What a jewel is the New York City Ballet! I have admired the company since 1951, and seeing them perform is one of the most delightful moments of my theatre-going experiences.
 

My Parsifal Conductor, by Allan Leicht, at the Majorie Dean Little Theater at the West Side YMCA, is a production of the Directors Company. The title refers to the appointment of a Jewish conductor Hermann Levi (Geoffrey Cantor), who is chosen to conduct the first Parsifal at Bayreuth in 1882. Richard Wagner (Eddie Korbich) opposes the choice of a Jew to conduct his last opera. When he fails, he tries to persuade Levi to become a Christian. The two fine actors dominate the play. The seven member cast, is directed by Robert Kalfin. The set design of Harry Feiner is impressive. We first see Wagner's wife Cosima in bed in 1930, where she recalls the incidents that took place between 1880 and 1886, and then she comments on what is taking place during those years.
 

Midnight at The Never Get, book, music and lyrics by Mark Sonnenblick, co-conceived by Sam Bolen, is a production of the York Theatre Company. It is about two gay men in the late 1960's in Greenwich Village, New York City. One (Jeremy Cohen) is a songwriter and the other (Sam Bolen) sings his songs. They become lovers during a time when homosexuals were persecuted by the police. It follows their life, which ends sadly for both. A third actor (Jon J. Peterson) (photo below of 3 cast members) is the singer as he grows old. All three are fine singers, directed by Max Friedman (photo below with costume designer Vanessa Leuck).The opening night party took place at Lips Restaurant, 227 East 56th St, which as the ad states is New York's ULTIMATE Drag Queen Show Palace, where we congratulated the cast and creative team.
