On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -June 14, 2014

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
June 14, 2014

06-11-14 Mare Winningham and Peter Maloney receive the Richard Seff Awards at Actors' Equity Office. 165 West 46th St. Tuesday afternoon.

The 2014 68th Annual Tony Awards were the highlight of the season. Hosted by the always charming Hugh Jackman, the list of presenters and guests included Carole King, Daniel Radcliffe, Clint Eastwood and many others too numerous to name. Among the worthy winners were Best Musical A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder and Play All the Way, Best Actor in a Musical Neil Patrick Harris and Play Bryan Cranston and Best Actress in a Musical Jessie Mueller and Play Audra McDonald. There could not be better choices.

Off-Broadway, The Village Bike, by Penelope Skinner, features a fearless performance by Greta Gerwig, who is quite impressive in her theatre debut as a frustrated, pregnant wife, whose husband is reluctant to have sex with her. It is an absorbing play, with many twists and turns. The six member cast is splendid, under the fine direction of Sam Gold.  The opening night party took place at 49 Grove with Diane Lane, Katharine Waterson, Judith Light and Jessica Love.

The New York City Ballet presented A Midsummer Night's Dream, music by Felix Mendelssohn, choreography by Balanchine. It is, without doubt, one of great choreographer's finest creations. It is enjoyable from beginning to end, and this performance was splendid. Every dancer was outstanding, especially Maria Kowroski, Joaquin de Luz and Daniel Ulbricht. It is a pure delight, and every member of the audience leaves knowing that they have witnessed one of the most glorious nights of ballet.

American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented Cinderella, music of Sergei Prokofiev, choreography by Frederick Ashton. Gillian Murphy was splendid in the title, especially in the ballroom scene in Act II. She is a treasure. David Hallberg was her ardent Prince and offered fine support. Luis Ribagorda was the Jester, and merited the thunderous applause in Act II.  Cinderella's Step-Sisters, played by two male dancers, Craig Saltein and Roman Zhurbin, were entertaining, and pleased the many children in the audience.















































The Irish Repertory Theatre 2014 Gala was simply terrific. The performance of The Spectacular Songs of Lerner & Loewe was one of the best evening spent in the theatre this season. The cast, chorus and orchestra could not be better. Singing these glorious songs, among eleven superb soloists, were John Cullum, Melissa Errico, Max von Essen and Nathan Gunn, directed expertly by Charlotte Moore. Afterwards, the celebration continued at Sardi's, with a delicious dinner, accompanied by exquisite Jameson whisky. A perfect ending to a perfect evening.

Peter Maloney and Mare Winningham received the Richard Seff Awards and Whitney Bashor and Steven Boyer received the Clarence Derwent Award at Actors' Equity. It was a wonderful ceremony, and the awards were well deserved.

A press preview of the new Off-Broadway musical Piece of My Heart: The Bert Berns Story was held at The Rehearsal Studio of the Pershing Square Signature Center. Four selections were performed by a talented cast, that includes Leslie Kritzer, de'Adre Aziza and Linda Hart. It will open on July 21 and I hope to be there.

Producer Hal Luftig received his caricature at Sardi's, and the room was packed with his friends, including Orfeh, Billy Porter, Roger Rees and the cast of Kinky Boots. It was a festive occasion.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting Norte, The End of History, by Lav Diaz, Philippines, 2013, at the Elinor Bunin Monroe Film Center opening June 20. I reviewed the film at the 51st New York Film Festival, and I attended the press screening to alter or confirm my first opinion. I wrote originally that it is an overlong film (more than four hours), supposedly inspired by Crime and Punishment, by Dostoyevsky. An amoral, dropout law student believes he can lead an irresponsible life ignoring all rules of civilized society. He murders a moneylender and her daughter, and an innocent man is charged with the crime. There are horrendous, brutal episodes of the man in jail, and relentless scenes of his suffering wife and two small children trying to survive. It is a powerful, depressing film.

Film Society of Lincoln Center presented press screenings of  two films of Joanna Hogg, which will be shown for one week beginning June 27. Unrelated, UK, 2007, is about a discontented, middle-aged woman, who leaves her partner in London to spend a holiday alone. She visits a friend and her family, who are renting a villa in Siena, Italy. Although she tries to be unintrusive, she becomes an unwelcome guest. The filmmaker shows the unhappiness of the heroine quite well, but, unfortunately, she is a dull and uninteresting character, and, ultimately, bores the viewer. 

Archipelago, UK, 2010, is about a family vacation on the isles of Scilly. The mother, daughter and son are an unhappy bunch, and whine and moan throughout the film. They are unpleasant company to spend precious time with. Also it is filmed in dark rooms, which is hard on the viewer's eyesight. This is the third film that I have seen by this filmmaker, (Exhibition, 2013, that I reviewed at the 51st New York Film Festival).  She seems to be an acquired taste. Unfortunately, I have not acquired it.

Film Forum is presenting Yves Saint Laurent, by Jalil Lespert, France, 2014, June 25-July 8. I attended a press screening, and I recommend it for all lovers of fashion, and fans of an unusual love story.The two lead actors, Pierre Niney (Yves Saint Laurent) and his business partner/lover Guillaume Gallienne (Pierre Berge) give splendid performances, depicting twenty years of their life together beginning in 1958. Fans will delight in the fashions seen during that period, as the designer became the sensation of the fashion world. The dark side is also revealed, as he was a manic-depressive, promiscuous and addicted to drugs and alcohol. It is a powerful film.
