Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben October 6, 2018

 

 

Aubrey Reuben

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

October 6, 2018





The Nap
, by Richard Bean, at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, takes place in Sheffield, England, at the World Snooker Championship. A young player (Ben Schnetzer) is forced to lose Frame 4 in order for an illegal betting syndicate to win lots of money. An assortment of characters overact in this silly play directed by Daniel Sullivan. There is a transgender gangster, who mispronounces her words. There is a manager, who appears in each of his scenes, talking to foreign countries on his cellphone, without knowing where the countries are. There is a father, who uses profanity, especially the f... word, in nearly every sentence. There is an alcoholic mother with a smelly boyfriend. Lame jokes about films and celebrities are repeated ad nauseam. The scenic design, by David Rockwell, is impressive.
 

The New York City Ballet, at the David H. Koch Theater, presented a varied program of four ballets. Allegro Brillante, music by Peter Ilitch Tschaikovsky, choreography by George Balanchine, with piano solo by Elaine Chelton, is a joyful dance piece, with the always brilliant Sara Means. Her powerful performance never ceases to astonish me. She was supported by a fine Tyler AngleEasy, music by Leonard Bernstein,  choreography by Justin Peck, was a disappointment. Fortunately, it was the shortest piece on the program. Carousel (A Dance), music by Richard Rodgers, choreography by Christopher Wheeldon, features the remarkable Tiler Peck, who appears to float on the stage. With the glorious music, she is a delight to watch. The highlight of the program was La Sylphide, music by Herman Severin Lovenskjold, choreography by August Bournonville, staged by Peter Martins. It is about a Sylph (Sterling Hyltin) who captivates a Scottish farmer (Joaquin De Luz), who pursues her into a forest, ending in tragedy for both of them. It is a charming ballet, and the two leads were marvelous. Daniel Capps conducted the orchestra. 
 

On Becket: Exploring the Works of Samuel Beckett, conceived & performed by Bill Irwin, at the Irish Repertory Theatre, is a ninety-minute performance by Irwin, in which he displays his admiration for the famous Irish playwright. He acts eight selections from his plays, the most famous being Waiting For Godot, in which he is joined by 13-year-old Finn O'Sullivan, who also reveals his growing talent. Irwin is a marvelous clown, and while putting on a series of hats, and changing his trousers and jackets, he shows his ability to transform himself before our eyes. After the performance, we attended the opening night party at Jake's Saloon, 10th Avenue between 22nd and 23rd Streets, where we congratulated the two actors, with guests Tony and Gen Walton, and Artistic Director Charlotte Moore and Producing Director Ciaran O'Reilly (photo below Ciaran with Bill, Charlotte and Finn). It was a lovely party.
 

We attended a luncheon at Bond 45, 221 West 46th St, to meet The Wheelhouse Theater Company's cast and founding members of the company, and see selections from their newest production Happy Birthday, Wanda June, by Kurt Vonnegut. The director and founding member Jeff Wise spoke about the production, as did Marc Leeds, who wrote four books about the playwright, including The Vonnegut Encyclopedia, and the cast performed two selections from the play. The play, after receiving a rave review in the New York Times, has moved to the Duke on 42nd St, 229 West 42nd St, for a six week limited engagement from October 18-November 29. It opens on October 23, and I hope to be there. I photographed the cast (photo below) and we enjoyed a delicious buffet lunch. It was a delightful afternoon.
