Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben September 16, 2017

 

 

Aubrey Reuben

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

September 16, 2017


 

On the Shore of the Wide World, by Simon Stephens, is a production of the Atlantic Theatre Company. It is about a family living in Stockport, England. I was born and raised in Manchester nearby and I have visited the dreary town. I do not enjoy listening to uneducated characters, using the F*** word in most of their sentences with unintelligible accents while leading dull, frustrated lives. They watch soccer on television, drink lots of alcohol, smoke cigarettes constantly, and wonder what fried food they should eat. Fish and chips are frequently mentioned. It is boring dialogue, and painful to hear. The actors are good. The play is not.

 


 

MoMA presented 3-D Funhouse: Recent Restorations from the 3-D Film Archive, Sept 1-103-DRarities. 1922-53. USA-Canada. 2015, is a compilation of film clips covering the period. Some are quite interesting. One is the trailer for Miss Sadie Thompson, starring a sexy Rita Hayworth. Others are appropriate for children like Caspar the Ghost, an animated feature. For those wanting to learn the history of 3-D, this collection is a fine introduction.
 


 

MoMA presented Deepak Rauniyar's White Sun. Sep 6-12. It is a 2016 film from Nepal. A revolutionary returns to his remote village for the burial of his father. He has been away fighting in the civil war for ten years. In the meantime, his wife gave birth to a daughter from another man, and now plans to marry his brother. What happens next, is a profound view of the life of people in Nepal. Some want to preserve traditions and others want to change their way of life. The acting by the entire cast, directed by Deepak Rauniyar, is excellent, and the two children featured in major roles are adorable. I enjoyed every minute of this fascinating film.



I have enjoyed the Astaire Awards since its inception. Now they are the Chita Rivera Awards, and the program at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre was superb.

 




Chita Rivera
 and her daughter Lisa Mordente (photo below) were present.Scenes from various Broadway shows were presented, and it was wonderful to see dance numbers from Grand Hotel, Pippin, Come From Away, West Side Story, A Bronx Tale, Sweet Charity, among others. Among the honorees were Tommy Tune, Diane Paulus and Antonio Vendome, and winners like Megan Sikora and Corbin Bleu. Presenters like Karen Ziemba (photo below), David Hyde Pierce, Carmen de Lavallade and Lee Roy Reams introduced the winners.The host was 
Bebe Neuwirth and the co-producers were Nikki Feirt Atkins, founder of the American Dance Machine for the 21st Century, and Patricia Watt. We celebrated the marvelous evening with a great VIP party at Sardi's restaurant. It was a memorable event.
 


 

The Jewish Museum, 1109 Fifth Avenue, held a press preview for Modigliani Unmasked, September 15, 2017-February 4, 2018. 130 drawings were displayed, with a selection of 12 paintings and 7 sculptures. The exhibition is for admirers of Amedeo Modigliani, an Italian artist, who moved to Paris in 1906, and died much too young in 1920. It is an impressive exhibition, and I recommend it highly for lovers of modern art.

 

I attended a delightful cocktail reception at the D & D Building, 979 Third Avenue, at George Smith's Cocktail Furniture Collection, Suite 1615. The furniture is impressive, and we were encouraged to admire the collection with champagne, white wine (Sancerre) or a Martinini (Grapefruit gin, Maraschino liqueur and dry vermouth) and little snacks, and meet Martin Brudniki. It was a pleasant afternoon, and we enjoyed the cocktails!


 

The Metropolitan Museum held a press preview of Rodin at The Met, September 16, 2017-January 15, 2018. It is a magnificent exhibition of sculptures by the great artist, Auguste Rodin. You will see The Thinker, Adam, Eve, Honore de Balzac, and many inspired by Greek mythology, like Cupid and Psyche, Orpheus and Eurydice. It is a marvelous exhibition, and highly recommended.
