Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - September 10, 2016

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
September 10, 2016

 

I attended a delightful photo op to watch five selections performed by the Berkshire Theatre Group of Fiorello! music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, who was in attendance, and also on opening night. It opened at the Classic Stage Company (CSC)'s East 13th Theatre, 136 East 13th St, on September 9. The talented cast gave a fine performance. The cast was enthusiastic and energetic, directed by Bob Moss. It is a lovely musical, with glorious songs and melodious music, and Chelsea Cree Groen as Dora stole the show. It was a very entreating evening.
 


 

I attended a Meet and Greet to welcome the new El Gallo, Peter Reckell (Days of Our Lives) to the cast of The Fantasticks at the Jerry Orbach Theater, 1627 Broadway. He will appear from September 5-25. Wine and snacks were served. It was a happy photo op. I look forward to attending one of Peter's performances.


 

I attended the launch party for Origin's 1st 1016 Annual Festival of Irish Theater, September 1-October 2, at Mutual of America, 320 Park Avenue. It was a delightful affair attended by all the sponsors, and many of their speakers spoke about the many works to be presented. A scrumptious buffet and fine drinks, including two Irish whiskeys and an Irish beer, were served. Origin Theatre Company's Artistic Director George C. Heslin is to be congratulated for this exciting program bringing the best of new Irish Theater to New York.


 

I attended a press event at the Woolworth Building, 233 Broadway, to announce the debut of the Brussels' Artist-Led Accessible Art Fair New York, presented by MvVO ART and their media partner artnet, which will take place at the National Arts Club during the month of November. Six speakers spoke about the Fair, including Maria van Vlodrop, the Founder and President of MvVO ART, and Stephanie Manasseh, who started the Fair in Brussels in 2007. It is a platform for both talented emerging and established artists to sell their work to the art buying public. Two artists also spoke about their experiences at the Fair. Other speaks were the director of North American Brussels Airlines, which is one of the sponsors, and two curators of the Fair. The reception took place in the headquarters of artnet.  An Elit Stolichnaya vodka and two fine wines were served, with small bites of crudités, cheeses and fruits, plus Neuhaus Premier Chocolates from Belgium. It was a lovely event.


 

Wine and cheesecake was served at a Meet & Greet for That Golden Girl Show!-A Puppet Parody, created by Jonathan Rockefeller, at the DR2 Theatre, 103 West 15th St. I photographed the cast. It opens on Monday,, October 3, and I eagerly await the opening night.


 

Spamilton opened at the Triad Theatre,
158 West 72nd St.





The opening night party was held at Arte Cafe, 106 West 73rd St, with the cast and guests including Dee Hoty, Bryan Batt and Christine Ebersole.
A buffet with wine was served on this happy occasion.



The Morgan Library & Museum
, 225 Madison Avenue, is one of the jewels of New York. Everyone should visit the exquisite building. Charlotte Bronte: An Independent Will, September 9, 2016-January 2, 2017, is the current exhibition, and it is superb. The author of the classic Jane Eyre is celebrated on the 200th anniversary of her birth. There are are manuscripts, letters, her drawings, portraits and even one of her dresses. By the time you leave the exhibition, you will know her life intimately, and recognize her wonderful achievements. Do not miss this it!


Cameraperson
, by Kirsten Johnson, USA, 2016, is a documentary, directed, and produced by the cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. If your eyes can tolerate jerky camera movements and blurred scenes, this may be a film for you to see. It is a self indulgent film with many repetitious scenes. You will meet her mother many times, who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. You will see her twins, not the father, again many times. You will see clips of many of the places that she has traveled to for various documentaries. For that reason, there are scenes in Nigeria, where a nurse/midwife deliver twins, one healthy, one not. You listen to a district attorney repeat the ghastly tale of a man dragged to his death in Texas. You see an interview with a young boy, blind in one eye, telling us how his brother had his head shot to pieces by a rocket in Afghanistan. There is also a scene, where a woman trashes her mother's belongings after she committed suicide. She is fascinated with a family in Foca, Bosnia, which she visits five times. She mainly focuses on a very old lady in the town, who likes to smoke. I could describe many more scenes, that are mostly unpleasant. As a celebrity photographer with the New York Post for over 30 years, I was eagerly anticipating seeing this film. I was thoroughly disappointed.
 


 

Neruda, by Pablo Larrain, 2016, is a film about the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco), a communist, who went into hiding when the government arrested communists in 1948. A dull detective (Gael Garcia Bernal) was ordered to capture him. While this is partially factual, it is also fanciful, which makes much of the story suspect. Unfortunately, the film is slow moving for a cat and mouse tale, and the dialogue is pseudo-intellectual. All the characters are unattractive, and Neruda, apparently, was sex obsessed. We see him having an orgy with four naked women, and the same scene is repeated three times throughout the film. A long scene takes place in a repulsive brothel, where a drag queen asks him to repeat a poem which is also repeated three times throughout the film, and then kisses him on the lips. Afterwards the transvestite is interrogated by the detective, and confesses how wonderful it was to meet a fellow artist, a great poet. Neruda appears to be a self-centered egomaniac, whose treatment of his two wives is appalling. Only, lovers of Neruda' poetry will enjoy this film.
