Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -March 3, 2019

 

 

Aubrey Reuben

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

March 3, 2019


The New York City Ballet presented 
 The Sleeping Beauty , music by  Peter Ilyitch Tschaikovsky , choreography by  Peter Martins . It is one of the most sumptuous ballets ever presented by the company. Balanchine  had only created the  Garland Dance , which was included in the program. The composer wrote three ballets, all with glorious music. The company rose to the occasion with a magnificent performance. Every dancer was marvelous.  Tiler Peck  (Aurora) was, as always, outstanding, as was  Tyler Angle (Prince Desire). Their  Grand Pas de Deux  at the end of Act II was the highlight of the afternoon. Among other dancers, one must mention  Ashley Laracey  (The Lilac Fairy),  Brittany Pollack  and  Troy Schumacher  as Princess Florine and The Bluebird, and the adorable  Charlotte Nebres  as Little Red Riding Hood. The orchestra was conducted by  Daniel Capps . It was a delightful afternoon of ballet for all the members of the audience, which included many children. 
 
The Price of Thomas Scott, by Elizabeth Baker, is a production of the Mint Theater Company. This company revives forgotten plays, that deserve to be remembered. This female playwright is one of them. It was first presented in Manchester, England, my hometown, in 1913. The plot concerns a businessman, who owns a hat shop, and receives an offer to sell it to be converted to a dance hall, which he finds immoral. The excellent eleven member cast, is directed expertly by Jonathan Bank. One cast member, Josh Goulding (photo below with the director) is actually from Manchester. The other photo below is of two cast members Nick LaMedica and Emma Geer. It is a lovely play, and we congratulated the cast at the opening night party at the West Bank Cafe.
 
I was invited to the home of  Margarita Anthoine  to hear a piano recital by  Juana Zayas . The all F-minor program featured works by Haydn, Beethoven and Chopin. The pianist gave an outstanding performance. It was joy to listen to her. Her proud husband was present, as well as her friend, who prepared a delicious flan for the occasion. Both ladies were born in Cuba.

The hostess offered food and fine wines after the recital. It was a delightful afternoon.

A press preview Moroni:The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture, February 21-June 2, 2019 at the Frick Collection, 1 East 70th Street is a magnificent exhibition. Giovanni Battista Moroni captures each person naturally. This is the first exhibition in the United States of his paintings. There are nearly two dozen portraits, plus Renaissance jewelry, textiles, arms and armor and other luxury items on display. It is a superb exhibition that all art lovers will enjoy in one of my favorite buildings. We are so fortunate to have the Morgan Library and Museum and the Frick Collection in New York City. 
 

I attended a press screening of The Hours and Times, by Christopher Munch, United States, 1991, at the Quad Cinema, 34 West 13th St. It is a black and white film about a four day holiday, that John Lennon (Ian Hart) and his manager Brian Epstein (David Angus) took to Barcelona, Spain, in 1963. The two actors do a terrific job imitating the two famous people, but as the film describes it, it is a fictitious account. Epstein is gay, and Lennon likes to explore his sexuality. It is an interesting film, that holds one's attention. Lennon constantly smokes, drinks Scotch with Coca Cola, plays the harmonica and is generally unpleasant, revealing his nasty personality. Epstein is a gentleman, but with psychological problems. The dialogue is vulgar and crude at times. However, one sees that celebrities, or so-called famous people, have problems like all human animals. It opens on March 1.

Room at the Top,
 by Jack Clayton, United Kingdom, 1959, at the Film Forum, will be screened March 8-March 14. Do not miss it! It is one of the first, and finest, kitchen sink drama films that England produced. It was nominated for six Academy Awards, and won two Oscars, one for Simone Signoret as Best Actress, and one for Neil Paterson for Adapted Screenplay, from the novel by John Braine. The story is about an ambitious young working class man (Laurence Harvey), who meets the daughter (Heather Sears) of the wealthiest man in this grimy industrial town in Yorkshire, and pursues her in order to raise to the top. Unfortunately for him, he becomes involved with an unhappily married woman, a mature older lady (Simone Signoret), and discovers the power of true love. The acting by every member of the large cast is superb, and the screenplay is so realistic that you feel you know all the members of the town intimately. I enjoyed every minute of this magnificent film.
