On Broadway, The Other Place, by Sharr White, is about a scientist suffering a mental breakdown. Although only seventy minutes, it seems a lot longer, as we watch her problems with her husband, daughter, son-in-law and doctor. Laurie Metcalf gives a fearless performance, under Joe Mantello's direction.
 
A revival of Picnic, by William Inge, opens on Sunday. Comments to follow in the next column.
 
Off-Broadway, Water by the Spoonful, by Quiara Alegria Hudes, won the Pulitzer Prize, but following this convoluted story is difficult to accept. A wounded Puerto Rican soldier returns home from Iraq and has to deal with his frustrated life and family problems. Other characters are in an internet chat room. All are suffering from drug addiction. It is a grim tale.
 
The Wonderful Wizard of Song: The Music of Harold Arlen has three male crooners and one female performer sing eighty minutes of the marvelous songs of this great composer. You will enjoy hearing your favorite songs, including selections from the immortal Wizard of Oz.
 
There was a press preview of Cinderella, starring Laura Osnes. It has a wonderful cast, and I anticipate its opening with pleasure.
 
There was also a press preview for Really Really, by Paul Downs Colaizzo, directed by David Cromer. I look forward to this opening also.
 
Studio 54 Below, Adam Moss, Ian Schrager and Munitz Travel were honored at the 11th Annual June Briggs Awards at the Hotel Pierre. It was a splendid affair. Andrea McArdle received a special award.
The 16th Annual Muscular Dystrophy Association's (MDA) Muscle Team Gala & Benefit Auction at Chelsea Piers is always an enjoyable evening with famous sports stars, and beautiful ladies like Olivia Culpo, Miss Universe.
 
I saw Olivia Culpo again the next day when she crowned Nana Meriwether as Miss USA 2012 in the atrium of Trump Tower. Donald Trump made the announcement.
 
Opera in Cinema presented a lusty version of Carmen, by Georges Bizet, from a live performance at the Royal Opera House from December 2006. Anna Caterina Antonacci was sensual and sexy in the title role, with a powerful voice and convincing acting.
 



01-10-13 (L-R) Logan West. Miss Teen USA. Donald Trump. Nana Meriwether. Miss USA 2012. Olivia Culpo. Miss Universe in the atrium at Trump Tower. Fifth Ave & 56h St. Wednesday morning 01-09-13

 Jonas Kaufmann was superb as her lover, singing and acting splendidly. Ildebrando D'Arcangelo was equally superb as the bullfighter and Norah Ansellem revealed a surprisingly strong voice as Micaela. The four leads, as well as the rest of an excellent cast and chorus, were a pleasure to hear and watch. The orchestra, under the baton of Antonio Pappano, played the sparkling score magnificently. Only the set was a disappointment, featuring tall, dark red walls, instead of sunny Spain.
 
The Actors' Fund invited me to see a delightful film Quartet, by Dustin Hoffman, 2012, in his directing debut, about elderly people residing in a home for retired musicians and opera singers. When they have to perform a gala to raise funds to keep the home going, they suddenly take on a new lease of life. Complications ensue when a newly retired diva arrives. The cast features some of England's finest actors, including Maggie Smith, Pauline Collins, Tom Courtenay,  Billy Connolly and Michael Gambon. They and the rest of the cast are simply brilliant. It is one of the most entertaining films of the season, and the music is glorious.
 
The Pirogue, by Moussa Toure, Senegal/France,2012, follows thirty Africans trying to reach the Canary Islands in a small boat of the title, in order to find work and escape the poverty of their homeland. It is a sad tale that reflects the reality of the appalling situation on much of the African continent. It is heartbreaking and tragic. It opens at the Film Forum on January 23.
 
Bert Stern: Original Mad Man, by Shannah Laumeister, 2011, is a fascinating film about a successful photographer, who, unfortunately, ruined his personal life through drugs and obsessive womanizing. That he has survived to his eighties is amazing. He rose to fame with his novel approach to advertising, and achieved even greater fame photographing many of the most famous beautiful women of the world, like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn. The photographs are wonderful to see.
