Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - June 9, 2016

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
June 9, 2016

 

The 2016 Drama Desk Awards were presented at Town Hall. The winners were in many ways similar to the Outer Critics Circle Award. Jessica Lange and Frank Langella were the Outstanding Actress and Actor in a Play and Cynthia Erivo and Danny Burstein were Outstanding Actress and Actor in a Musical. The Humans was Outstanding Play and Shuffle Along (which will be considered next season for an OCC Award) was Outstanding Musical. Michael Urie was the host, and the presenters included Chita Rivera, Jennifer Simard and Laura Benati among many others, It was a splendid event.


 

Off-Broadway, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City, by Halley Feiffer, at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, is a four character play, directed by Trip Cullman. It takes place in a hospital room, where a son (Erik Lochtefeld) and a daughter (Beth Behrs) visit their respective mothers. All four are ridiculous, unpleasant characters. The highlight of the 90 minute play is a scene in the bathroom, where the man gives the girl oral sex, while she is sitting on the sink. I have never seen a scene like that before. The party took place at Sushi Samba, 87 Seventh Avenue South with guests like Joe Mantello, Walter Bobbie and Carolyn McCormick with her older son, Cooper Jennings. After that unusual sex scene, I need a strong sake!


 

Shining City, by Conor McPherson, is a revival of a fascinating play at the Irish Repertory Theatre which is now back home in its beautiful, newly renovated theater at 132 West 22nd St. The fine four member cast, headed by Matthew Broderick, and directed expertly by Ciaran O'Reilly, are perfect . In her only scene, Lisa Dwan is wonderful as the frustrated woman, who is abandoned by the man (an excellent Billy Carter) with whom she has been living, and they are parents of a child. An all star celebrity audience attended the opening night, and the party was held on the second floor in the Gallery. Artistic Director Charlotte Moore welcomed Sarah Jessica Parker, Angela Lansbury, Hal Prince, A.R. Gurney, Nathan Lane, Kenneth Lonergan, Tony Walton, Joe DiPietro and Lee Wilkof. It was glorious party.
 


 


 


 


 


 



American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented The Golden Cockerel, choreography by Alexei Ratmansky, music by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. It was a colorful production, thanks to the scenery and costumes by Richard Hudson, inspired by Natalia Goncharova, who created them in 1913 and 1937. Stella Abrera was an exotic Queen of Shemakhan and Cassandra Trenary an exquisite Golden Cockerel. Both danced wonderfully. However, the rest of the ballet is basically mime, with the ensembles doing pretty steps, like the Peasant Women and the Persian Women. The story is silly, with the Tsar Doden (Victor Barbee) and the Astrologer (James Whiteside) captivated by the Queen. Ormsby Wilkins conducted the orchestra, which played the pleasant music well.


 

At MoMA, there is a wonderful series Universal Pictures: Restorations and Rediscoveries 1928-1937 until June 15. Laura, by Otto Preminger, USA, 1944, is a classic, with a lovely Gene Tierney in the title role, accompanied by Clifton Webb, with his caustic comments, and Dana Andrews as a hard boiled detective. Supporting roles by Vincent Price and Judith Anderson contribute to the success of this outstanding example of film noir. I enjoyed every minute of this wonderful film.


 

MoMA presented Dadaglobe Reconstructed, June 12-September 18. Over 100 works by more than 40 artists are represented. It is a fascinating exhibition. Tristan Tzara planned a book in 1921when he was in Zurich, and solicited photos of their art work from all of them, plus a photo of the head of the artist. The book was never published, but what he received was a magnificent example of the imagination of these inventive, superb artists.
 

 

We attended a Candlelight Vigil for sports icon and humanitarian Muhammad Ali at Cafe Vero, 1483 Second Avenue. Restaurant owner Sammy Muscovic provided the guests with a delicious luncheon with mimosas. Boxing legend Gerry Cooney, who was a friend of the heavyweight champion and traveled with him on various occasions, was the host of the party in his memory. It was a fine tribute to a sports legend.


 

Alex Brightman School of Rock-The Musical received his caricature at Sardi's. His friends and family arrived to enjoy the celebration. It is always a fun event.

 

I received an advanced copy of Some Enchanted Evenings: The Glittering Life and Times of Mary Martin, by David Kaufman. Mary Martin was a dear friend, and I miss the charming lady, who was a wonderful singer and a splendid actress. I look forward to reading her biography, and will write my review in a future column.
