Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -August 9, 2014

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

08-08-14 Cast member Julia Stiles and DJ Whoo Kid at the opening night party for "Phoenix" at The Leonora. 529 West 29th St. Thursday night.



Off-Broadway, Phoenix, by Scott Organ, takes place one month after Sue (Julia Stiles) and Bruce (James Wirt) have a one night stand. She arrives in New York to tell him she is pregnant. To get an abortion or not to get a abortion in Phoenix, that is the question. The two actors work hard to give life to this static play with much unrealistic dialogue. They do not succeed. The opening night party was a different matter. it was one of the liveliest opening night parties that I have ever attended. It took place at a new club, The Leonora, 529 West 29th St, with many charming guests like Kathy Searle, Chad Kimball, AnnaSophia Robb and Kyle Harris.

A Meet and Greet was held for Red Eye of Love, a new musical by Sam Davis and directed by Ted Sperling, which will begin performances on August 27 at DiCapo Opera Theatre. The nine member cast performed three selections, and they were delightful. I look forward to its opening night.

Mostly Mozart began its season on July 25-August 23. I attended the concert on August 3.  Andrew Manze conducted the orchestra and Steven Osborne was the soloist in Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat major ("Emperor"), by Beethoven. I have heard this concerto live many times, beginning in Stuttgart in 1954, but I was amazed by this performance by the young brilliant pianist. It sounded fresh, skillfully performed and a delight to hear.





















































The concert also included Symphony No. 104 in D major ("London"), by Haydn. As I was born and raised in Manchester, the home of the Halle Orchestra, I still appreciate Haydn's music, and this symphony is one of his better efforts. But as I told him in 1795, go to Manchester for more inspiration! The Mostly Mozart orchestra never sounded better.

MoMA presented Lady in the Dark: Crime Films from Columbia Pictures, 1932-1957, which finished on August 4. I saw every film except one. It was a splendid series. I had seen The Lady from Shanghai, by Orson Welles, USA, 1947, earlier this year at Film Forum, and was underwhelmed. Seeing it again confirmed my review. The only saving grace of this film is the chance to admire Rita Hayworth at the height of her career. Also the closing scene in a House of Mirrors is a cinematic highlight.

The other film from the series which I saw again was Dead Reckoning, by John Cromwell, USA, 1947. Again my earlier impression was confirmed. The complicated plot is totally unbelievable, but the two stars,Humphrey Bogart and Lizabeth Scott, make the viewing worthwhile. 

The series featured some wonderful screen actors, and besides the three mentioned above, we had the pleasure of seeing Henry Fonda, Glenn Ford, Franchot Tone, Gloria Grahame, Nina Foch and Mickey Rooney. With the Film Society at Lincoln Center, Film Forum and MoMA, New Yorkers are the luckiest film fans in the world.

MoMA is presenting The Great War: A Cinematic Legacy from August 4-September 21. Secret Agent, by Alfred Hitchcock, Great Britain, 1936, is a spy film which takes place in Switzerland during World War I, with four of my favorite screen actors, John Gielgud, Madeleine Carroll, Peter Lorre and Robert Young. It was voted one of the best British film of 1936, and one can understand why. The dialogue is witty, the acting superb, the direction splendid and there are enough twists in the plot to entertain everyone
