Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -April 6, 2019

 

 

Aubrey Reuben

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

April 6, 2019




The Ballet Hispanico,at the Joyce Theater, presented three ballets, of which two were world premieres. It began with 
 El Viaje,  choreographed by  Edwaard Liang , with all eleven dancers. They displayed rigorous training, being lifted and raised over their male dancers' heads. It was an impressive beginning. The second ballet was  Sombrerisimo , choreographed by  Annabelle Lopez Ochoa , with six female dancers, wearing bowler hats. It was the highlight of the evening, and the skill and agility of the dancers was amazing. The program concluded with  Homebound/Alaala , by  Bennyroyce Royan . It consisted of boxes and boxes, moved and thrown by the eleven member cast. Part of the music was from the Philippines, Bayanihan, which is the name of the folklore company from that country. The highlight of the ballet was when all the dancers danced across the stage in unison like the conclusion of a Balanchine ballet. It was a varied, interesting program, and the female dancers were outstanding. 
 
MoMA is presenting Modern Matinees: B is for Bacall, Mar 1-Apr 26. I returned again to see Designing Woman, by Vicente Minnelli, USA, 1957, starring Gregory Peck, Lauren Bacall and Dolores Gray. A sports writer (Peck)  meets a fashion designer (Bacall) in California. After a few days together, they fall in love and marry. Returning to New York, their professional lives seem incompatible. A former girlfriend (Gray) is starring in an upcoming Broadway show, and Bacall is asked to design her costumes. That's when the trouble begins; that and a few gangsters after Peck, who displays his very funny side in this delightful comedy.
Charlie's Waiting, by Melisa Annis, at Theaterlab, is a Parity Production. Louise (Xanthe Elbrick) (photo below of the three actresses) is making last minute preparations for her wedding to Kelly (Stephanie Heitman). A mysterious stranger Annie (Amy Scanlon)  arrives, who Louise mistakenly believes is a guest of Kelly. Annie wants to see Kelly, but cannot wait for her. She reveals a secret to Louise, which leaves Louise bewildered and shaken in her trust of Kelly. Kelly finally arrives home, and Louise is reluctant to tell her all Annie has said. It is short, clever play, full of suspense, seventy minutes without an intermission. The three actresses are superb, under the expert direction of Ludovica Villar-Hauser (photo below with the playwright). We congratulated the cast and creative team at the opening afternoon reception in the theater. Among the guests was Xanthe's proud mother, who came from upstate New York, to enjoy her daughter's wonderful performance.
 
What the Constitution Means to Me, by Heidi Schreck, at the Helen Hayes Theater, takes place in an American Legion Hall. The playwright plays a fifteen-year-old competitor in a contest to tell what the Constitution of the United States means to her. Mike Iveson in a legionnaire who introduces her. Later, she removes her jacket, and becomes a later forty-year-old woman, and relates the story of the brutal treatment of the female members in her family by men. Iveson also removes his jacket, tie and glasses, and addresses the audience for a brief moment as a friend who has an incident at a bar to tell. A fourteen-year-old girl come on the stage after eighty-minutes to debate with Schreck for twenty minutes. The three member cast was directed by Oliver Butler. A copy of the Constitution was given to the audience with advice from ACLU. It is more a lecture than a play
