On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - April 20, 2013

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

On Broadway, Motown: The Musical, book by Berry Gordy. music and lyrics from the Legendary Motown Catalog, is a trip down memory lane. Remember Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, The Jackson Five, Diana Ross and the Supremes. Well, they all are represented on stage. We hear selections from about sixty of these popular songs by a group of very talented performers. For almost three hours, it is the music that is quite enjoyable. The story, on the other hand, about the 25-year history of the record label is flimsy and has little dramatic value.

 
One of the great performances of the Broadway season is to be seen by Nathan Lane as a gay burlesque comedian in The Nance, by Douglas Carter Beane, at the Lyceum Theatre. A nance plays effeminate characters on stage for jokes, but was essentially a straight heterosexual man. In this case, Lane is actually homosexual. In 1937, New York City cracked down on burlesque and the play captures the hostile atmosphere perfectly. We witness a love affair between Lane and a young man (Jonny Orsini), while we see scenes from burlesque performed by Cady Huffman, Andrea Burns and Jenni Barber as strippers and the wonderful Lewis J. Stadlen as the top banana on stage. The splendid cast is directed expertly by Jack O'Brien. Don't miss this marvelous theatrical experience.

The Big Knife
, by Clifford Odets, is a 1949 clunky melodrama, about an unhappy movie star. It was flop the first time on Broadway. Time has not improved it. Richard Kind steals every scene in which he appears as the brutal studio chief, and the set design of John Lee Beatty and the costume design of Catherine Zuber are a joy to behold.
 
The Assembled Parties, by Richard Greenberg, is a story of a West Side Jewish family celebrating a Christmas dinner in 1980 and again in 2000. The talents of two fine actresses, Jessica Hecht and Judith Light, are squandered in this unconvincing and unsatisfying play. Again, the scenic design of Santo Loquasto and the costume design of Jane Greenwood are the highlights of this depressing play.
 
Orphans, by Lyle Kessler, is a revival of a three character Off-Broadway play, that for some reason has had success over the years. The three male characters are repulsive, but in this version they appear to be funny to the audience. A mugger, his mentally slow brother (who flies around the dilapidated house like a monkey) and a gangster, who is kidnapped by them, are all orphans. The gangster becomes a father figure to the two brothers. It's a ridiculous, unbelievable play.

 
Jekyll & Hyde, book and Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, music by Frank Wildhorn, had a cult success, when it first appeared on Broadway in 1997. This  revival has two superb singers, Constantine Maroulis in the title role and Deborah Cox as the prostitute Lucy. Their singing of the popular songs made famous by the show are the highlight in the famous tale of a split personality.

 
Off-Broadway, The Call, by Tanya Barfield, is a serious play about a white woman who cannot have children, who decides to adopt a black child from Africa. Complications follow.

 
Christopher Plummer received the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's 13th Annual Monte Cristo Award at the Edison Ballroom. Kevin Spacey presented the award, and guests included Zoe Caldwell, Ted Hartley, Penny Fuller, Nikki James and many others.

 
MoMA presented Exodus, by Otto Preminger, USA, 1960, tells the true story of the ship of the title name filled with Jewish refugees that lands in Palestine from Cyprus in 1947. It also shows the founding of the State of Israel in 1948. It features an all star cast, headed by Paul Newman and Eva Marie Saint as lovers, Ralph Richardson, Peter Lawford, Sal Mineo and Lee J. Cobb. It is an impressive achievement and the viewer is immersed in the Jewish State's struggle to survive.

 
MoMA is also presenting Kino!, 2013, New Films from Germany, April 18-24. Silvi, by Nico Sommer, 2013, is a film about a 47-year-old woman, whose husband leaves her after years of marriage. Alone, she pursues the quest for a new man, placing ads in the paper, going on the internet and meeting one man accidentally in a park. All result in failure. The men are married, liars, immature, involved in kinky sex and generally worthless. It's a realistic view of the problems faced by a middle aged woman alone in the modern world. 

 
Opera in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented Eugene Onegin, by Tchaikovsky, from the Royal Opera, performed live on February 20, 2013. It was an imaginative production told in flashback, directed by Kasper Holten. The cast was outstanding, not only in singing, but also in acting. Simon Keenlyside in the title role was brilliant, and Krassimira Stoyanova was a persuasive Tatyana. The entire cast and chorus was superb, and the orchestra played the score expertly under the a baton of Robin Ticciati
