Black Tie International:

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!

The 2013 Tony Awards were held at Radio City Music Hall. The winners included Kinky Boots Best Musical and Pippin Best Revival, Vanya and Sonia and Marsha and Spike Best Play and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Best Revival, Billy Porter "Kinky Boots" Best Actor in a Musical, Patina Miller "Pippin" Best Actress, Tracy Letts "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Best Actor in a Play and Cicely Tyson "The Trip to Bountiful. All were well deserved. 
 
Off-Broadway, Cornelius, by J. B. Priestley, is an old-fashioned play, about an importing firm facing bankruptcy. A marvelous Alan Cox in the title role is the optimist trying to encourage his staff, and a large number of creditors keep appearing to settle their accounts. All the actors are splendid and quirky, and it is a delight to watch them perform.

3 Kinds of Exile, by John Guare, are thee short plays about Polish exiles. The first is a monologue about a man with a rash. The second is a story told by two men at lecterns about a famous Polish actress, who is condemned to a miserable life in New York. The third is nonsensical, about a Polish playwright in Argentina. All three have little dramatic interest, although the second talks about a more interesting real life character.

 
Reasons to Be Happy, by Neil LaBute, is a sequel about four four aimless characters, that we met in the playwright's Broadway's more successful play. These small town unhappy couples fight, scream, yell at each other with a stream of profanity for two hours, and are unlikeable at the end of the play as they are in the first scenes.
 
A Picture of Autumn, by N. C. Hunter, is a beautifully acted, well constructed play abut three elderly English aristocrats, living in their ancestral mansion, and unable to take care of their home and property. Their son wants them to sell the home. It is a fine production of a sweet, sentimental play.

The Silver Cord
, by Sidney Howard, is a another old-fashioned drama about an extremely possessive mother and her two sons, one married and the other engaged. Over one weekend, we see her interference in their lives. It is a fine production and well acted.
 
American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented a new version of Le Corsaire. The costumes and scenic design were not an improvement over the the previous production, and the staging seemed much the same. The dancing was fine. Gillian Murphy was a brilliant Medora and Misty Copeland was a magnificent Gulnare. The two slave girls won well deserved applause. Among the male dancers, Marcelo Gomes was superb as Ali, and Steven McCrae impressed as Lankendem. The rest of the cast was quite good, and the Jardin Anime was the most beautiful scene of the evening. The orchestra played well, under the baton of Charles Barker.
 
The Hall of Fame 2013 Fellowships were presented at the 10th Anniversary Luncheon at the New York Friars Club to Raymond J. Lee by Joel Grey and to Evan Cabnet by Andre Bishop. James M. Nederlander was also honored. Among the guests were Estelle Parsons who was the host, Tommy Tune, Lois Smith, William Ivey Long and Pia Lindstrom among many others. It was a joyous occasion.
 
Actors' Equity presented the Clarence Derwent Awards to Michael Urie and Annaleigh Ashford and the Richard Seff Awards to Kristine Nielsen and Lewis J. Stadlen. It was a delightful ceremony, and the four excellent actors deserved their awards for their marvelous performances this season.
 
There was a book party for Strippers, Showgirls, and Sharks, by Peter Filichia, at the New York Friars Club. I am eagerly awaiting to read it. 
 
The 25th Anniversary Gala of the Irish Repertory Theatre began with a performance Something Wonderful, The Songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein, hosted by Tom Hanks. Shirley Jones and Patrick Cassidy were special guests, and among the many performers were Christine Andreas, Howard McGillin, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Paulo Szot. It was a splendid concert, directed by Charlotte Moore, with a festive dinner afterwards at Sardi's, with guests Swoosie Kurtz, Tina Chen and John McMartin, among many others.
 
MoMA presented Paris Belongs to Us, by Jacques Rivette, France, 1961, a slow moving film about a group of actors rehearsing a play by Shakespeare. At the same time, it is a look at disillusioned, world weary bohemians, with paranoid views of their life, leading to tragedy for some of them. 
 
MoMA is presenting Allan Dwan and the Rise and Decline of the Hollywood Studios June 5-July 8. While Paris Sleeps, by Dwan, USA, 1932, is a typical melodrama about an escaped convict searching for his daughter among the criminal elements in a sleazy neighborhood in Paris. Although farfetched, it holds the viewer's interest.
 
Opera in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented a film version of The Magic Flute, by Mozart. directed by Kenneth Branagh, France & U.K. 2006. It was well sung, with an excellent cast, headed by Rene Pape (Sarastro), Lyubov Petrova (Queen of the Night), Joseph Kaiser (Tamino), Amy Carson (Pamina) and Ben Davis (Papageno), with James Conlon conducting the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. It was updated to World War I, filmed with battle scenes in trenches and with the cast as soldiers and war affected civilians.
