On Broadway, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, with a new book by Peter Parnell, is an ill-conceived revision of a musical, which has wonderful music, but a confusing plot. The new book, unfortunately, does not enhance the show. The opening night party was at the Plaza Hotel, and many celebrities attended like Megan Hilty, Lily Rabe, Debra Messing and Katharine McPhee. Lysistrata Jones, book by Douglas Carter Beane, music & lyrics by Lewis Flinn, is a musical about cheerleaders who refuse sexual favors to their boyfriends on the basketball team untol they win a game. The cast is enthusiastic and energetic, but the music is loud and the plot is silly.
 
Off Broadway, Jay O. Sanders gives a brilliant performance in a very bloody Titus Andronicus. The opening night party took place on the stage of the Newman Theatre with guests like Michael Cerveris, Raul Esparza and Carolyn McCormick.
 
Ambassador Sun Guoxiang, Consul-General of the People's Republic of China, spoke at the Australian American Leadership Conversation at the Australian Consulate. It was a rewarding evening.
 
The Acting Company presented a delightful benefit staged reading of Charley's Aunt, starring Stephen Bogardus, Santino Fontana and Kathleen McNeeny. At the reception afterwards, I congratulated the cast and mentioned that I had many warm memories of the play, as I had starred in it in 1948 at Bayside High School.
 
Susan L. Schulman held her annual holiday party in her office with many guests like Penny Fuller, Lee Roy Reams, Kathleen Chalfant, Karen Ziemba and John Hillner.
 
Co-hosts of CBS The Talk Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert, Aisha Taylor and Sheryl Underwood unveiled a TALKwich sandwich at Carnegie Deli. It's vegetarian.

 
The Treatment Action Group presented the 2011 Research In Action Awards (RIAA) honoring AIDS Activism to John Benjamin Hickey, Dr. Polly Harrison and Dr. Robert F. Siliciano at the MidTown Loft. Weekend Today Show Co-anchor Jenna Wolfe was the hostess at this fine event.
 
OK! Magazine hosted a private opening of AOA, Tribeca's newest restaurant and sporting lounge at 35 Ave of the Americas with cocktails by Star Vodka and a menu sample by Executive Chef Eric Dougherty. It was a fun event.
 
The Sixth Annual Holiday Celebration to benefit St. Jude Children Research Hospital is wonderful event with entertainment by Wynton Marsalis and members of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, celebrities like Kevin Jonas and Diggy Simmons and champagne, hors d'oeuvres and chocolates. I even had my photograph taken with Santa Claus.
 
After a big article about the club in the New York Post, we dropped over to Rick's Cabaret for the Due Diligence Ball to meet Eric Langan, owner of 23 clubs around the country. They are very popular and the profits are rising.
 
Love, Loss, and What I Wore celebrated its 900th performance at B. Smith's Restaurant, with its new cast, Emily Dorsch, Daisy Eagan, Sonia Manzano, Loretta Swit and Myra Lucretia Taylor. It's always a festive occasion.

 
The Frick Collection held a press preview to see their new gallery, the Portico Gallery for Decorative Arts and Sculpture with an inaugural exhibition White Gold: Highlights from the Arnhold Collection of Meissen Porcelain from December 13-April 29. It's a fascinating display of magnificent teapots, vases and dishes. It is quite impressive, and I recommend it highly. The Frick Collection is one of the treasures of New York.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting Spanish Cinema Now December 9-22. Torrente 4: Lethal Crisis, by Santiago Segura, 2011, Spain, is said to be the most successful series in Spanish film history. The fourth of the series follows the detective Jose Luis Torrente, played by the director, who also wrote the screenplay. It begins when he is in charge of security at a wealthy wedding and ends as he leaves jail where he was unjustly imprisoned. It is a comedy, which contains a great deal of toilet humor, much nudity and sexual activity, It is vulgar, juvenile, tasteless, and is apparently a crowd pleaser. I met the director and he is charming. Unfortunately, the film is not. Cousinhood by Daniel Sanchez Arevalo, 2011, Spain, is about a young man (Quim Gutierrez) jilted at the altar. With two cousins, he returns to his childhood town on the coast of northern Spain to recuperate. It is supposedly a guy movie, but the three protagonists are so immature and ridiculous, that they become merely irritating. Again I met the director and the leading man, and I was curious to see their film. I was disappointed.

 
The Film Society of Lincoln Center and The Jewish Museum are presenting the 21st Annual New York Jewish Film Festival January 11-26. The first press screening was Mabul (The Flood), by Guy Nattiv, Israel/Canada/France, 2010, a powerful film about a boy (Yoav Rotman in a superb performance) preparing for his Bar Mitzvah, but overwhelmed by problems caused by a dysfunctional family life. The parents are alienated from each other and an autistic older brother returns home from an institution which had been forced to close. It is a bleak existence, that fortunately ends on a more hopeful note. Welcome to Kutcher's: The Last Catskills Resort, by Caroline Laskow and Ian Rosenberg,2012, USA, is a documentary about a hotel that survived 100 years, but suffered the fate of all the famous hotels in the area when vacation habits changed, After World War II it was a paradise for Jewish families, who enjoyed sports, entertainment and enormous amounts of kosher food. It is a nostalgic look at an era that has disappeared. It gave birth to stand-up comedy and Freddie Roman is seen in one of his hilarious routines. I came to America in 1947 and visited the Catskills during those years and the film brings back warm memories.

Return, by Liza Johnson, 2012, USA, will open in February, and is wonderful film, that I recommend highly. Kelli, played splendidly by Linda Cardellini, returns to her small town in Ohio after serving in the army in Iraq. She is the mother of two girls, her husband is a plumber and she returns to her dull job in a factory. It is a story of her trying to readjust to the life she had before, after a horrible experience in a war. It is a realistic, intelligent film, enhanced by a glorious  performance by Cardellini.

The Forgiveness of Blood, by Joshua Marston, 2010, USA, Albania, Denmark, Italy, is a sad view of life in a rural town in Albania, where ancient tradition rules and modern life for the young is precarious. A feud between two families result in the death one death of one member. Tradition calls for retribution, and we see the devastating effect it has on the other family. It is a powerful film, with impressive acting, especially by the children, with a teenager (Tristan Halilij) as the young man marked for retribution.
