On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -December 14, 2013

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
December 14, 2013

12-10-13 Honoree Alan Menken and wife Janis at the York Theatre Company 22nd Oscar Hammerstein Award Gala at the Hudson Theatre Ballroom. 145 West 44th St. Monday night 12-09-13
Off-Broadway, The (Curious Case of the) Watson Intelligence, by Madeleine George, celebrated its opening night party at Heartland Brewery. 

Love, Linda, is basically  a one woman cabaret show, in which Stevie Holland (who wrote the book) tells the life of Mrs. Cole Porter, singing many of her husband's famous songs. Three musicians accompany her. The opening night party took place at Al Bustan restaurant. Among the opening night guests were Sheldon Harnick, Charles Strouseand Marni Nixon.

The York Theatre Company 22nd Oscar Hammerstein Award Gala was a splendid affair. Alan Menken and W. David McCoy were honored at the Hudson Theatre. Among the distinguished performers and guests were Bernadette Peters, Norm Lewis, Zachary Levi and Beth Fowler.

Kinky Boots Director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell, and cast members Annaleigh Ashford, Stark Sands and Billy Porter received their well deserved caricatures at Sardi's.

Cast members of A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, headed by Jefferson Mays, had afternoon tea at Downton Abbey's Tea & Biscuits Food Truck on 50th St. after their Wednesday matinee performance.
I joined them.

MoMA is presenting Ileana Sonnabend: Ambassador for the New December 21, 2013-April 21, 2014, an exhibition of some 40 works that the legendary galley owner in Paris (1962) and New York (1970) collected and presented in her art galleries.






































There is a wide selection of works by the modern masters like Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenberg, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and be sure to see one of my favorites, Pink Panther, by Jeff Koons, a beautiful porcelain of Jayne Mansfield

MoMA is presenting Dante Ferretti: Designing for the Big Screen until February 9, 2014. I saw Aviator, by Martin Scorsese. USA/Germany, 2004, a splendid film about a certain time (late 1920s to 1947) in the life of Howard Hughes. Leonardo DiCaprio is impressive as the mentally disturbed genius of the airplane industry, and his involvement in the movie industry in Hollywood. Cate Blanchett received an Oscar playing Katharine Hepburn, a one time lover of Hughes, as did Dante Ferretti for his sumptuous design. The entire cast is terrific, and I enjoyed every minute of this wonderful film.

The Past, by Asghar Farhadi, Iran, 2013, will open at Film Forum on December 20, and is about two Iranian men married to two French women In Paris. One (Ali Mosaffa) returns to his wife (Berenice Bejo) after a four year absence to grant her a divorce. The second (Tahar Rahim) is living with the other man's wife, while his own wife is in a coma in a hospital after an attempted suicide. Also, living in an untidy house, are three unhappy children. All the actors give fine performances, but the film is overlong and depressing.

Opera in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented La Traviata, by Giuseppe Verdi, from the opening night at Teatro alla Scala, December 7, 2013. The singers were magnificent. Diana Damrau as Violetta was in perfect voice, powerful when required, and softly mellifluous in her dying scene. It was an outstanding performance. Her two male colleagues, Piotr Beczala (Alfredo) and Zeljko Lucic (Germont), also sang brilliantly. The orchestra, under the baton of Daniele Gatti, played the music splendidly. It was a great night for singing. The staging and sets by Dmitri Tcherniakov were another matter. The sets for the two party scenes were minimal, with dancers missing from Act II. The final act was ridiculous with only a chair, and Violetta lying on the floor instead of a bed. The staging was also absurd. Violetta and Annina sharing a cigar in the first act, Alfredo being pushed across the room by Germont in the second act, and everyone leaving Violetta to die alone in the final act, contributed nothing to the wonderful masterpiece that Verdi composed.
