Tony Winner Cicely Tyson "The Trip to Bountiful" Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play at the Women's Republican Club. 3 West 51th St. Sunday night. 06-09-13

Off-Broadway, Choir Boy, by Tarell Alvin McCraney, takes place in a Black boys prep school, where the choir is very important. As the leader of the choir is a an effeminate, homosexual boy, this leads to tensions. When the choir sings, it is quite pleasant. When the choir boys talk, there is generally too much happening in a short 90 minute play.





























American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented Sylvia, choreography by Sir Frederick Ashton, music by Leo Delibes, a pleasant ballet about shepherds and nymphs. Xiomara Reyes, in the title role, replaced the injured Natalia Osipova, and danced splendidly, with a superb Hernan Cornejo as Aminta, her lover. Ivan Vasiliev was Orion, the evil hunter, who kidnaps the heroine, and the two danced brilliantly in the second act in his cave. The bubbly music was well played by the orchestra, conducted byCharles Barker. The Sleeping Beauty. choreography by Marius Petipa, music by Tchaikovsky, concluded the eight week season at the Metropolitan Opera House. Guest star from the San Francisco Ballet Maria Kochetkova  was Princess Aurora and displayed fine technique. Hernan Cornejo was her fine Prince and  Yuriko Kajiya was a brilliant Lilac Fairy. All the cast danced well, and Ormsby Wilkins conducted. It was a fitting close to a splendid season.

Film Society at Lincoln Center is presenting The New York Asian Film Festival June 28-July 11. Catnip, by Kevin Dayrit, Philippines, 2012, is an incoherent film that puts a strain on the viewer. It is about two high school friends, one abused by her sadistic father and the other, who lives alone. Except for a vicious ending in which the abused girl has her revenge, the fragmented scenes are hard to follow. The Animals, by Gino M. Santos, Philippines, 2012, focuses on a group of wealthy, spoilt high school students, ready to graduate, who attend a party in one of the luxurious homes in a gated community. As the liquor and drugs flow, the party degenerates into violence, vomit and unpleasant behavior, ending in a brutal, sickening rape scene and death of one of the young girls. It is a powerful film, which leaves a bitter taste.

MoMA is presenting Allan Dwan and the Rise and Decline of the Hollywood Studios June 5-July 8. The Restless Breed, by Dwan, USA, 1957, is the typical Western. Scott Brady comes to town to avenge his father's murder, and wipes out all the bad guys. A very young Anne Bancroft plays the love interest, and is a pleasure to warch.Escape to Burma, by Dwan, USA, 1955, features three fine actors, Robert Ryan, Barbara Stanwyck, and David Farrar, plus many well trained elephants and funny monkeys. The story, on the other hand, is far fetched and hard to believe, but one does enjoy the animals. Around the World, by Dwan, USA, 1943, features Kay Kyserand his orchestra, which was popular during World War II. They make a trip around the world to entertain the troops and raise morale. They also included actors likeMischa Auer and Joan Davis 
to provide comic relief. It reflects the music of the period, plus silly fun which the troops appreciated. It's painless. Tennessee's Partner, by Dwan, USA,1955, is the usual, typical Western, with an excellent cast headed by John Payne and beautiful Rhonda Fleming. The major interest in the film is the performance by former President Ronald Reagan as a good guy. He was a very likable fellow.

Opera in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented Il Trittico, by Puccini, from Teatro alla Scala performed in March 2008. They are three one-act operas with a superb lead singer in each. Juan Pons is the betrayed husband in Il Tabarro, Barbara Frittoli is the tragic nun in Suor Angelica and Leo Nucci is the comic hero in Gianni Schicchi. The rest of the casts are good, with Vittorio Grigolo pleasant sounding as Rinuccio in the third one. Riccardo Chailly conducted the orchestra.



06-10-13 2013 Tony Winner Cyndi Lauper "Kinky Boots" Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for the Theatre at the Women's Republican Club. 3 West 51th St. Sunday night. 06-09-13
