Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - July 27, 2013

 



Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
July 27, 2013
 

07-24-13 (L-R) Music and lyrics Mildred Kayden, orchestrations Danny Holgate, Charles Strouse at the opening night of "Storyville" at the York Theatre at Saint Peter's Church at Citicorp. East 54th St. and Lexington Ave. Tuesday night 07-23-13


07-24-13 (L-R) Music and lyrics Mildred Kayden, orchestrations Danny Holgate, Charles Strouse at the opening night of "Storyville" at the York Theatre at Saint Peter's Church at Citicorp. East 54th St. and Lexington Ave. Tuesday night 07-23-13

 
Off-Broadway, Nobody Loves You, book and lyrics by Itamar Moses, music and lyrics by Gaby Alter, is a musical about a television reality show. When an undistinguished show can inspire a musical, one realizes the pernicious influence that television can have on theatre. The music is forgettable, the lyrics banal and the humor infantile. The cast portrays characters that are silly and irritating.

 
Storyville, book by Ed Bullins, music and lyrics by Mildred Kayden, is a wonderful musical about the beginning of jazz music in the New Orleans district of the title in 1917, which was razed to the ground to eliminate its brothels and other criminal activities. A large talented cast, expertly directed by Bill Castellino, sing and dance to the music of seven excellent musicians, which brings to life the atmosphere of the period. It is thoroughly enjoyable.

 
Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting Cracked Actor: David Bowie, Movie Star, August 2-8. I attended two press screenings. Baal, by Alan Clarke, U. K. 1982, is an adaption of a Bertoldt Brecht play, about a worthless artist/poet, a womanizer, who eventually commits a murder. David Bowie in the title role looks and acts sleazy in this grim, depressing film. 

 
Cracked Actor, by Alan Yentob, U.K. 1975, is a documentary about David Bowie's 1974 Diamond Dogs tour, with archival footage and interviews with an inarticulate Bowie. Fans of Bowie may enjoy these two films. I definitely did not.

MoMA is presenting A View from the Vaults: Warner Bros, Today. July 9-August 14. Good Night, and Good Luck, by George Clooney, USA, 2005, is a rarity, an intelligent film about the television journalist Edward R. Murrow and his programs on CBS attacking Senator Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s. The black and white film plays almost like a documentary, using live footage of the Senator, and features a superb performance by David Strathairn as Murrow. It is one of the best films in this series.

 
MoMA also presented Shoot the Piano Player, by Francois Truffaut, France, 1960, is a crime story about a pianist (Charles Aznavour) who gets involved with gangsters, due to his two brothers, who are criminals. It is the usual view of the underworld with sexy ladies, tough guys and dark scenes of chases, shootings and violent death. Although always interesting, it really is a cult movie for Truffaut fans.

 
Cutie and the Boxer, by Zachary Heinzerling, USA, 2013, is a remarkable documentary about a Japanese couple preparing for their joint art exhibition in New York. 80-year-old Ushio Shinohara came to New York as a famous avant-garde artist in 1969, but did not achieve success. His wife Noriko arrived 40 years ago as a 19-year-old art student and married him. Married life was difficult for her, but finally she has achieved success with her comic book style paintings depicting their life together, she as Cutie and he as the Boxer. It is a story filled with love, dedication to their art and their 40 year struggle through poverty and misery. It is an impressive film, and 59-yeat-old Noriko is adorable. 

 
Ballet in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented La Sylphide, choreography by August Bournonville, music by Herman Severin Lovenskiod, from the Bolshoi Ballet, filmed on September 30, 2012. It is a charming ballet, with an outstanding cast. Ekaterina Krysanova is an exquisite Sylph, who seems to float throughout her performance. Vyacheslav Lopatin dances brilliantly as the groom, who leaves his bride on his wedding day for the Sylph. The beautiful Anna Rebetskaya is the abandoned bride, who performs magnificently in the first act. The highlight of the ballet occurs in the first act, when the entire cast perform a wonderful inspired Scottish dance. The orchestra accompanied the dancers very well, under the baton of Pavel Klinichev.
