Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - May 18, 2013


 



Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
May 18, 2013
 

05-13-13 Cast members (L-R) Shonn Wiley. Irina Dvorovenko. Christine Baranski. Walter Bobbie at the cast party for "On Your Toes" on the mezzanine of City Center. 131 West 55th St. Sunday night. 05-12-13

The 78th Annual New York Drama Critic's Circle Awards were presented at Studio 54 Below. Christopher Durang received the Best Play Award for Vanya and Sonia and Marsha and Spike, and Dennis Kelly and Tim Minchin for Best Musical Matilda. New York City Center Encores!, Soho Rep and John Lee Beatty received well deserved Special Citations. Among the guests were members of the cast of the Best Play and Best Musical. Peter Bartlett and Harriet Harris were the very funny MCs. It was another fine afternoon.
 
The 79th Annual Drama League Awards were presented at the Marriott Marquis Times Square. The winners were Distinguished Musical Kinky Boots, Distinguished Play Vanya and Sonia and Marsha and Spike, Distinguished Revival of a Musical Pippin, Distinguished Revival of a Play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Distinguished Actor Nathan Lane. All were excellent choices.
 
Off-Broadway, Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, by David Malloy, has returned in a new venue. I enjoyed it the first time, and seeing it again reinforced my opinion. It is inventive, imaginative, has a talented cast, and Russian style food and drink is included with the performance.
 
New York City Encores! finished its twentieth season with a wonderful On Your Toes, music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Lorenz Hart, book by Rodgers & Hart and George Abbott. It is a pure delight, and the dancing is terrific, with the number On Your Toes, sung and danced brilliantly by Kelli Barrett and the magnificent ensemble. The choreographer/director Warren Carlyle did a a marvelous job, and every dance was a pleasure to watch. The cast was first rate, which included Christine Baranski, Walter Bobbie , Shonn Wiley, Joaquin De Luz, and a fabulous ABT ballerina Irina Dvorovenko, who stole every scene when on stage. Rob Fisher returned to lead the orchestra, which played the glorious music splendidly. It was a wise choice to end twenty years of great entertainment. I cannot wait for next season.
 
 
The New York City Ballet offered a sparkling program of a ballet by Balanchine, and two by Jerome Robbins. Western Symphony is Balanchine's salute to cowboys and saloon girls, and a tribute to the American West. Popular, well known songs are danced in a spectacular fashion in three movements. Among the soloists, Rebecca Krohn, Megan Fairchild and Teresa Reichlen were superb, with Jonathan Stafford, Jared Angle and Andrew Veyette not far behind.

It is one of my favorite ballets. N. Y. Export: Opus Jazz and Glass Pieces are mainly ensemble pieces, except for the second movement of the latter, danced exquisitely by Wendy Whelan and Adrian Dancig-Waring. Both are modern pieces, with the former a recognition of jazz music in American culture.

The Women's Project Theater's 2013 Women of Achievement Awards were presented at a magnificent Gala. Charlotte St. Martin, Sheila Nevins, Joanna Coles and Donna Kalajian Lagani were the recipients and Rosie O'Donnell and Andre Bishop were among the presenters. It was a delightful occasion.
 
Jerry Mitchell received the Mr Abbott Award at the Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation Gala at B.B. King Blues & Grill. Harvey Fierstein was the Master of Ceremonies, and among the entertainers in the wonderful show were Kerry Butler, Billy Porter and Stark Sands. It was joyous event.
 
A book party was held at Bice for the historical novel Cursed to Survive, by Rimma Rose. Delicious hors d'oeuvres and cocktails were served.
 
There was an opening night reception for Pop Artist Chris Collins and his Top Dogs Exhibition at POP International Galleries hosted by animal advocate Beth Stern and NY Giant David Diehl. Among the guests was Joanne Nosuchinsky, Miss New York USA 2013.
 
The Film Society at Lincoln Center is presenting Man of Steel: Burt Lancaster at 100 May 17-23. I saw two magnificent films. From Here to Eternity, by Fred Zinnemann, USA, 1953, won the Oscar as Best Picture and Frank Sinatra and Donna Reed won Supporting Actor Oscars. All were well deserved. It is one of the finest films about army life; in this case, the peacetime army in Hawaii just before the attack on Pearl Harbor, which provides the film with its stunning climax. The acting is superb and the film leaves a deep impression. Sweet Smell of Success, by Alexander MacKendrick, USA, 1957, is another impressive film about a powerful gossip columnist (Burt Lancaster) and a hustling press agent (Tony Curtis). The immoral behavior portrayed by most of the characters in the film is remarkable, and the realistic dialogue adds to the creation of a dangerous atmosphere of a gritty New York. This was an age when a newspaper columnist had unbelievable power to help or hurt a celebrity. They had millions of readers, who read and believed what they wrote. The acting is splendid and the plot is absorbing. I enjoyed every minute of these two films.
 
MoMA presented The Cousins, by Claude Chabrol, France, 1959, was one of the first New Wave films, that had an influential effect on filmmaking. Charles (Gerard Blain), as a young law student from the provinces and Paul (Jean-Claude Brialy), as a decadent law student, are two cousins, who live together in Paul's apartment in Paris. Charles falls for one of Paul's girlfriends with tragic consequences. It was quite shocking at the time for its depiction of drunken, immoral behavior of the young students, the realistic sexual language and partial nudity. More than fifty years later, it is still an impressive achievement.
 
Hannah Arendt, by Margarethe von Totta, Germany, 2012, is a film about the bright, intelligent German Jewish philosophy professor in the title role (interpreted brilliantly by Barbara Sukowa), who is sent to Jerusalem to cover the Adolf Eichmann trial for the New Yorker. Her articles and her book Eichmann In Jerusalem : A Report on the Banality of Evil cause a controversy among the Jewish leaders in the USA and Israel. It is a well acted film, showing the arrogance of this remarkable woman in face of the attacks from former friends. It is the true story that deserves to be seen by all thoughtful people.
 
Opera in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented Nabucco, by Verdi, from the Royal Opera, which was captured live on April 29, 2013. The major interest in this modern dress and minimal staging was the presence of Placido Domingo, singing the baritone title role for the first time. Placido is a treasure to the opera world. What he has accomplished is phenomenal. As always, he delivered a professional performance. The entire cast and chorus sang well, and included Liudmyla Monastyrska, Marianna Pizzolato, Andrea Care and Vitalij Kowaljow. Nicola Luisotti conducted the orchestra
