Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -August 24, 2013

 



Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
August 24, 2013
 

08-16-13 Cast members Zarah Mahler and Eric Anderson at the opening night party for "Soul Doctor". at Liberty Theater. 241 West 41st St. Thursday night 08-15-13

Off-Broadway, Summer Shorts Series A, consists of three short plays by Neil LaBute, Lucas Hnath and Tina Howe. All are entertaining, but the highlight is Good Luck (inFarsi), by LaBute, with two splendid actresses (Gia Crovatin and Elizabeth Masucci) competing at an audition. It is very funny.
 
Mostly Mozart offered a wonderful program of two works by Brahms. Concert for violin and cello in A minor featured two excellent soloists, Vadim Repin (violin) andTruls Mork (cello). It was a brilliant performance, accompanied by the orchestra led by David Afkham. A magnificent interpretation of the Symphony No. 2 in D majorfollowed after the intermission, and the rousing, powerful fourth movement brought the audience on its feet to applaud wildly.

Mostly Mozart also presented two works by Mozart and Tchaikovsky. Symphony No. 36 in C major, K. 425 ("Linz"), by Mozart, opened the program. It was composed in five days, and apparently Mozart himself did not seem to regard it with enthusiasm. I agree with the composer. The Violin Concerto in D major, by Tchaikovsky, with Joshua Bell, was performed after the intermission. Bell gave a dazzling performance. His dexterity, especially in the rapid third movement was astounding, and he received a well deserved tumultuous applause. Louis Langree conducted the orchestra.

A Meet & Greet was held for the Broadway revival of The Glass Menagerie, starring Cherry Jones, opening September 26. I can hardly wait.

 
A Meet & Greet was held for the popular singer Luis Fonsi in Forever Tango. He will appear from August 20 - September 1. He sang two songs, which delighted those in attendance.
 
Kristine Nielsen of Vanya and Sonia and Marsha and Spike was surprised (she had no idea that she was receiving the honor) when she received her caricature at Sardi's. The cast and playwright Christopher Durang were present to congratulate her.
 
Film Society of Lincoln Center presented four press screenings of the 25th Annual NewFest, New York's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Film Festival September 6-11. Test, by Chris Mason Johnson, USA, 2013, takes place in 1985 in San Francisco, when the AIDS epidemic was recognized. A young dancer in a modern dance company is enjoying his homosexual life, and decides to take a blood test. The film has many scenes of rehearsals and performances of modern dance which will delight its fans. Otherwise, the young man, while likable, really is not very interesting. Who's Afraid of Vagina Wolf?, by Anna Margarita Albelo, USA, 2013, is an unfunny comedy about an overweight 40-year lesbian filmmaker, living in a friend's garage, who decides to make a film. The director who plays the heroine is a pathetic character, and the film seems like an ego trip, a vanity production. Geography Club, by Gary Entin, USA, 2012, is like a television after school special to encourage teenagers to respect gay and lesbian students. The photography is excellent and the depiction of a typical American suburban high school would make students want to attend. The story is another matter. A confused teenager does not know if he should admit his sexual attraction for another boy. The so-called Geography Club is a group of students who are homosexual and help him make his decision. Most scenes are quite unbelievable, but painless. Pit Stop, by Yen Tan, USA, 2013, is about two men, blue-collar workers, in a small town in Texas, who meet at a gasoline station and have an affair. Both lead frustrated, boring daily lives, which we are forced to watch, and find love with one another. It is slow moving and dull.
 
Opera in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented La Traviata, by Verdi, from Teatro alla Scala, from a live performance in July 2007. It was a traditional performance, with a sumptuous set design by Dante Ferretti and beautiful costume design by Gabriella Pescucci. What a pleasure to watch a normal production, directed on stage byLiliana Cavani! Lorin Maazel conducted the orchestra, that played one of the finest scores of the great composer magnificently. The cast rose to the occasion, with a brilliantAngela Gheorghiu in the title role. Her acting and singing were a joy to behold. Ramon Vargas sang the role Alfredo and Roberto Frontali sang the role of Germont, both in fine voice. The chorus was superb in the first act and in the second scene of the second act. It was a performance to treasure.
