Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - January 23, 2016

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
January 23, 2016


Linda Lavin is one of Broadway's esteemed actresses. She is starring, unfortunately, in Our Mother's Brief Affair, by Richard Greenberg, at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. It is a Manhattan Theatre Club production, directed by Lynne Meadow, about a dying mother (Lavin) who reveals a secret affair to her twins, a gay son and a lesbian daughter. A fourth actor plays two roles. As her husband, he has a brief monologue in which he expresses his anger and frustration for having a sick wife. As her lover, he reads the contents of a letter which includes the titles of two popular pornographic films which stimulated their sexual activity. Both monologues are not funny. They are puerile and revolting. Before intermission, the lights in the theater go on, and the audience is subjected to the two children giving them a lecture about the Rosenbergs, who were executed following World War II as spies for the Soviet Union. Their mother's lover tells her he is David Greenglass. a co-conspirator of the Rosenbergs. There are other ridiculous revelations in this unbelievable play.


The American Spiritual Ensemble performed at the Florence Gould Hall at the French Institute Alliance Francaise (FIAF), under the direction of Everett McCorvey, Founder and Music Director. It was a marvelous evening of magnificent choral music. I did not want it to end. All the soloists were brilliant. It is unfair to single out anyone in particular, but I must admit it was a delight to listen to every number by a seventeen-member ensemble. All the voices were excellent and the selections were perfect. Make sure you attend their next performance when they are in New York.






Dark Horse: The incredible true story of the race horse Dance Alliance
, by Louise Osmond, UK. 2014, is a heart warming tale of a group of working class people in a Welsh village led by a determined woman, Jan Vokes, forming a syndicate to buy a racehorse, which amazingly has a successful career in the cruel world of steeplechase racing. It becomes a national phenomenon. The racing world is full of multimillionaires and aristocracy in the United Kingdom, and the poor are generally excluded. However, the racehorse becomes part of the family of thirty people and fills them with hope for a dream come true. The scenes at the racetrack and the mining village are beautifully photographed. For horse racing fans and the general public alike, it is a lovely, endearing film.


MoMA is presenting All That Jack (Cole), Jan 20-Feb 4, an eighteen film series, featuring the choreography and staging of Jack Cole, influential on screen during the 1950s. On the Riviera, by Walter Lang, USA, 1951, stars Danny Kaye as a cabaret performer in France. His first song is an imitation of Maurice Chevalier in a nightclub, and then he is hired to imitate a famous French flying hero, whom he resembles. It is a silly, convoluted story of mistaken identity, but there are the wonderful dance numbers created by Cole, which Kaye performs excellently. But the highlight for me was to see an untitled Gwen Verdun leading the chorus line. Her daughter, Nicole Fosse, attended the screening and spoke with Debra Levine, who showed a clip of a different movie and still photographs from the film before the film began. Her father, Bob Fosse, was a major influence on Cole. It was an entertaining evening.


One of my favorite events is the Casting Society of America (CSA) 31st Annual Artios Awards for Outstanding Achievements in Casting in Television, Theater, New Media and Short Film, held this year at the Hard Rock Cafe. While enjoying wine, beer and passed hors d'oeuvres, the host Tituss Burgess and the presenters, among whom were Julianne Margolies, Annaleigh Ashford, Rachel Dratch, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Stuhlbarg and Jeff Daniels, announced the winners. The ceremony is bi-coastal taking place simultaneously in Los Angeles and New York City.
