On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -July 26, 2014

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
July 26, 2014

07-22-14 Cast members Leslie Kritzer (L) and Linda Hart at the opening night party of "Piece of My Heart: The Bert Berns Story" at the Espace. 635 West 42nd St. Monday night 07-21-14


Off-Broadway, Piece of My Heart: The Bert Berns Story, book by Daniel Goldfarb, music by Bert Berns, directed and choreographed by Denis Jones, is a marvelous musical. It is the story of a songwriter, who, unfortunately, died at the age of 38. He wrote many hit songs in the sixties. The production is terrific, the cast, which includes Zak Resnick, Leslie Kritzer and Linda Hart, sing and act wonderfully, and I have rarely enjoyed a matinee like this. The opening night party took place at Espace with guests Megan Hilty, Steve van Zandt and James Monroe Iglehart.

Drop Dead Perfect, by Erasmus Fenn, is an amusing parody of a typical B-movie melodrama, starring the famous cross-dressing Everett Quinton as a wealthy lady living in the Florida Keys in 1952. Among the four member cast, is her female companion, a mysterious Cuban lover and a magician performing lawyer, under the expert direction of Joe Brancato. It is good fun. The opening night party took place at the theatre with guests like Barbara Felton, Andre DeShields and David Drake.

A Meet & Greet was held for the cast and creative team of You Can't Take It With You. It stars James Earl Jones, Rose Byrne (in her stage debut) and Elizabeth Ashley. It opens on September 28, at the Longacre Theatre, and I eagerly await it,

The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), 2 Columbus Circle, is a jewel, a treasure in the heart of New York City. An elegant restaurant, Robert,  on the ninth floor has a spectacular view of Central Park. It is open every day for lunch and dinner. Definitely, pay it a visit. Before you reach the restaurant, there are wonderful exhibitions to admire on Floors 2-6, including NYC Makers: the MAD Biennial from July 1-October 12. There is also a theater in the basement. A visit to this lovely museum will be a memorable experience.





















































MoMA is presenting Lady in the Dark: Crime Films from Columbia Pictures, 1932-1957 from July 11-August 4. Mysterious Intruder, by William Castle, USA, 1946, another Whistler film starring, as always, Richard Dix, this time as a shady private investigator hired to find a missing young lady, who will receive a lot of money from her dead mother. The convoluted plot features many murders, but it keeps a viewer's attention until the end.

Blind Spot, by Robert Gordon, USA, 1947, features Chester Morris as an alcoholic novelist, who despises his publisher. When the latter is found murdered, Morris is charged with the crime. It is an entertaining mystery, with clever, witty dialogue, and a beautiful blonde, Constance Dowling.

Chinatown at Midnight, by Seymour Friedman, USA, 1949, stars Hurd Hatfield as a thief, who steals art objects from antique shops. In a shop in San Francisco's Chinatown, he murders two people. From then on, the film is a police investigation by the numbers to capture the criminal. It is well done.

Escape in the Fog, by Budd Boetticher, USA, 1945, begins with Nina Foch having a nightmare, in which a man is about to be killed on a bridge. Later this is about to happen, and she saves the intended victim. The story is about German spies in America near the end of World War II. It is a modest film of the B-crime movie category.

The Burglar, by Paul Wendkos, USA, 1957, has Dan Duryea in the title role stealing an expensive necklace at the beginning of the film. He is pursued by the police, including a larcenous cop, who wants the necklace himself. Two blondes are the female attractions, Jayne Mansfield and Martha Vickers. They all end up in Atlantic City, when it was a popular seaside resort. It is another typical B-crime movie.

MoMA is also presenting ongoing An Auteurist History of Film. Taxi Driver, by Martin Scorsese, USA, 1976, is about a loner, a weird character (Robert De Niro), who drives a cab around New York. As he hates most of the people he sees, he acquires an arsenal of weapons. He fails in his attempt to assassinate a politician, but he has better success in murdering two pimps and a bouncer in a lurid brothel, and rescuing a teenage prostitute (Jodie Foster). The acting is fine. The film has been cited as a masterpiece; however, it is a depressing look at a certain element of New York City society.

Film Forum is presenting Boy Meets Girl, by Leos Carax, France, 1984, from August 8-14. It will be followed by a one week Carax festival August 15-21, which will include all his feature films, plus the premiere of a new documentary abut. Carax. The first feature film by the 24-year-old filmmaker was hailed by most of the press. Denis Lavant is a young disillusioned young man, who is depressed when his girlfriend leaves him. We see him first, when he tries to strangle a friend and then throws him in a river. It is not a good first impression. He then crashes an elegant party, where he meets a suicidal young woman. Their relationship ends tragically. The two principal characters are not likable, and most of the dialogue is pretentious.
