Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -November 28 2015

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

November 28, 2015

Ivo van Hove is a Belgian avant garde, experimental director, who directs classics of dead playwrights, according to his own vision. I have seen everyone of his productions Off-Broadway. Now, he makes his debut on Broadway with Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge, at the Lyceum Theatre. It is the Young Vic Production, which won the Olivier Award in London. That said, I must admit that I am not a fan of his work. The story is about a longshoreman (Mark Strong), who has raised his niece (Phoebe Fox) as his daughter for many years, and has developed a possessive love for her. When an illegal immigrant (Russell Tovey), staying in his house in Brooklyn, wants to become a citizen by marrying the young naive 17-year-old girl, problems ensue. Like a Greek tragedy, the ending is sad and disastrous. The acting is fine. The production leaves a lot to be desired. The scenery is a box, without furniture. The cast is barefoot for no discernible purpose. There is an annoying, throbbing noise in various scenes. The ending with a red type liquid covering the huddled eight member cast is ridiculous. Some productions do not travel well from England to America.

I went to a private
 home in a penthouse to attend an operatic concert by the Kandell Camerata, who performed operatic selections from popular operas. Music director and pianist Michael Fennelly had accompanied the cast of international rising opera stars for a concert entitled Libiamo: Bel Canto Opera Gala on tour with conductor Lu Jia and the  Asia Pacific Opera Association. They had just returned from performing two concerts in China in Macau and Beijing from August 25-September 4.

Then, Artistic Director Everett McCorvey  presented members of his National Chorale, and the American Spiritual Ensemble, who sang spirituals.

The program concluded with both singing groups combined performing selections from Porgy and Bess and Michael Fennelly's arrangement of Rhapsody in Blue. The singing was marvelous, and the selections were excellent. Among the guests were Scottish opera composer 
Thea Musgrave, her husband, musician and former Artistic Director of the Virginia Opera, Peter Mark, Dame Jill Sackler, whose late husband Arthur is immortalized by a Museum in his name in Beijing, and Victor Callegari, the former Head Make-up artist of the Metropolitan Opera. It was the birthday of Alice Kandell, and she was surprised with a lovely cake for the occasion. Alice was the charming hostess of a delightful evening, with delicious food and fine wines

The International Emmy Awards took place at the New York Hilton Hotel, 1335 Avenue of the Americas, with twelve awards being presented by many celebrities. Julian Fellowes, Writer & Creator, Downton Abbey, received the Founders Award from Elizabeth McGovern and Gareth Neame. Michael Douglas presented the Directorate Award to Richard Plepler, Chairman & CEO, Home Box Office. Among the other winners were from Norway, Anneke von der Lippe for Best Performance by an Actress, and from Brazil, Emilio de Mello for Best Performance by an Actor. Among the presenters were Patina Miller, Tovah Feldshuh, George Takei and Lea DeLaria. An interesting moment was when I met nominee Will Jessop, Producer/Director of the documentary Growing Up Down's, about his brother with Down's Syndrome, starring in the title role in a theater production of Hamlet. I met his brother and his mother. They were a lovely family, and I was very sorry that they did not win the Documentary Award, which went instead to Miners Shot Down from South Africa. As always, it was a wonderful event.

I hope Everyone enjoyed a Happy Thanksgiving.
