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

06-02-14 Winner Outstanding Actress in a Play Audra McDonald at the 59th Annual Drama Desk Awards at the Liberty Theatre. 234 West 42nd St. Sunday night 06-01-14


 Off-Broadway, The Killer, by Eugene Ionesco, is three hours long. It seems longer. It is a ridiculous play, that is not worth describing, and certainly not worth so much of a viewer's time. This is unfortunate, because there are many good actors in the cast.

Just Jim Dale, written and performed by Jim Dale, accompanied at the piano by Mark York, is a delightful one man show about growing up in England, becoming attracted to the Music Hall, performing there, and going on to star in films and on stage, as well as writing award winning songs, performing the characters in audio books and starring on Broadway. Dale is a star in every way, and a wonderful storyteller, as he recounts the story of his life to the audience. Do not miss this wonderful 100 minutes of pure entertainment.

Ethel Sings: The Unsung Song of Ethel Rosenberg, by Joan Beber, is the story of the second woman executed by the United States government for treason after World War II. Although the subject matter could be interesting, the play is not.














































The 59th Drama Desk Awards were awarded at Town Hall. Among the winners were Outstanding Musical A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder and Play All the Way. Outstanding Actor in a Musical (a tie) Jefferson Mays and Neil Patrick Harris and Play Bryan Cranston. Outstanding Actress in a Musical Jessie Mueller and Play Audra McDonald. All were well deserved.

The 70th Annual Theatre World Awards at the Circle in the Square Theatre honored twelve actors making their theatrical debuts, including Chris O'Dowd, Sophie Okonedo and Lauren Worsham. Two special awards were given toChristopher Plummer and Celia Keenan-Bolger. An after party took place at the Copacabana. It is always a festive occasion.

The Origin Theatre's Annual Benefit, hosted by Mutual of America, on the 35th floor with a spectacular view, was a festive occasion honoring the Irish Consul General of New York and his wife, Noel and Hanora Kilkenny. Among the many distinguished guests were the Mayor of Londonderry, Brenda Stevenson, and the Artistic Director of the Irish Repertory Theatre, Charlotte Moore and her Producing Director, Ciaran O'Reilly.

The Honorable Al Gore was one of the honorees at the12th Annual James Parks Morton Interfaith Awards Dinner at the New York Hilton Midtown. His daughter Karenna Gore Schiff accompanied him, and Estelle Parsons was among the guests.

American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented Coppelia, music by Leo Delibes, staged and directed by Frederic Franklin. It is a charming ballet, which ends with a well danced third act. Gillian Murphy was superb throughout, but was quite spectacular in the final act. Jared Matthews supported her expertly. The twelve children (students of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School at American Ballet Theatre) in the Dance of the Hours in the third act were delightful. It was a fun night at the ballet.

ABT presented Manon, music by Jules Massenet, choreography and direction by Sir Kenneth MacMillan, with the incomparable Diana Vishneva in the title role. She is brilliant, sensual, and it is impossible to take one's eyes off her. Her jumps, turns, her partnership with the wonderful Marcelo Gomes, are magnificent. It is one of the finest displays of dancing seen this season. Remarkable also is Herman Cornejo, a superb Lescaut. It was an unforgettable night at the ballet.

The Film Society at Lincoln Center presented press screenings of the 13th New York Asian Film Festival, June 27-July 14. Moebius, by Kim Ki-duk, South Korea, 2013, is a film by a penis obsessed filmmaker, which can only appeal to viewers with sick minds. Normal people should avoid this film. It is about a dysfunctional family, where a mentally deranged wife fights physically with her husband, and mutilates the penis of her son, after she sees him masturbating. The film is full of blood, on sheets and on knives. A girl in a convenience store, who has an affair with the husband, is raped by a couple of thugs, and she enjoys sticking knives in men's back. One of the thugs has his penis mutilated. It is disgusting film, with no redeeming virtue.

The Eternal Zero, by Takashi Yamazaki, Japan, 2013, is a film about Japanese Kamikaze pilots during World War II. These were suicide bombers, who caused great destruction to allied ships. The film is a sentimental version, in which a third generation brother and sister investigate their dead grandfather's life, and discover the secrets of his Kamikaze life. The photography is beautiful, but the story is idealized, about a horrible period in a tragic war. 

Blind Massage, by Lou Ye, China/France, 2014, is film about blind young people, who give massages in a massage center in a city in China. We see the various characters, with their problems, trying to overcome their physical handicap. The cast is superb, and the film is fascinating. We see their romantic relationships develop, as well as their frustrations. It leaves a deep impression on the viewer.
