Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -March 29, 2014

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
March 29, 2014

03-25-14 Cast members (L-R) Bobby Steggert. Tyne Daly. Fred Weller (in front) Grayson Taylor at the opening night party for "Mothers and Sons" at Sardi's. 244 West 44th St. Monday night. 03-24-14
 

 
On Broadway, a new production of Les Miserables, music by Claude-Michel Schonberg, lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer, original French text by Alain Boubil and Jean-Mac Natel, has a few changes in scenic design, but is basically the same story by Victor Hugo of Jean Valjean (Ramin Karimloo), a former convict being pursued by the policeman Javert (Will Swenson). We follow his adventures from his release from prison in 1815 to his death, sometime after the student riots in 1832. The three hour show has splendid music, fine singing and enough action to hold the attention of any theatre fan. It has been one of the most successful musicals on Broadway. The current cast, all very competent, has been directed by Laurence Connor andJames Powell.

 
Three fine actors, Tyne Daly, Fred Weller and Bobby Steggert, talk a lot about gay problems for almost 100 minutes in Terrence McNally's Mothers and Sons. Unfortunately, although all the problems are intelligently presented, it feels more like a lecture than a dramatic play. An embittered mother visits her dead son's lover unannounced, who is now, twenty years later, married to a young man, who has a six year old son. She pours out her resentment. The two men try to share their point of view. It is not a pleasant encounter. The well acted play is directed by Sheryl Kaller.

 
Off-Broadway, a revival of Beyond Therapy, by Christopher Durang, is one of the funniest plays of the season. The cast is superb, under the direction of Scott Alan Evans. Liv Rooth gives an outstanding performance. The opening night party took place in the Theatre Row Lounge with Marsha Norman, Donna McKechnie and Tony Sheldon.

Tales From Red Vienna, by David Grimm, is a turgid melodrama, that takes place in 1920, about a widow (Nina Arianda) who turns to prostitution to support herself. A client (Michael Esper) pursues her and becomes her lover. This overlong play of three acts covers a multitude of topics, none of which are very interesting. Fine actors are wasted in this production.

 
The esteemed British actor Michael Pennington is rarely seen in New York, so when Theatre for a New Audience presented King Lear, by William Shakespeare, in their new theatre Polonsky Shakespeare Center in Brooklyn, I renewed my passport, obtained a visa, bought travelers cheques and got a phrase book to speak to the natives. Pennington is a fine actor, speaks clearly and is a joy to see on stage. From imperious king to tragic old man, he dominates the large cast in this three hour production, directed by Arin Arbus. It was worth the trip.

 
I attended a wonderful exhibition of contemporary art Reflections: Art and Beauty to benefit Robert Wilson's Watermill Center at Sherle Wagner, 300 East 62nd St. It was an impressive exhibition.

 
Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting press screenings of Art of the Real April 11-26. The Second Game, by Corneliu Porumboiu, Romania, 2014, is a very unusual film. A father and son watch a soccer match on tape, twenty five years later, of a game between the two top teams played on December 3, 1988. The father had been the referee, and they comment about the game It was played in a blinding snow storm. I am a soccer fan. I grew up in England, but I wonder how an ordinary viewer would enjoy watching the entire 90 minutes of a game played in abysmal conditions.

 
MoMA is presenting an ongoing An Auteurist History of Film. Kvarteret Korpen (Raven's End), by Bo Widerberg, Sweden, 1963, is a black and white film about the working class in a poor section of Malmo. A young man writes a novel about his life there, hoping to have it published, so he can escape to Stockholm and begin a new life. He lives with a hardworking mother, an unemployed, alcoholic father, and his girlfriend becomes pregnant. It is an honest, realistic look at life with very few options for a successful future for many young people in many cities around the world.
