On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
June 8, 2013

Off-Broadway, Good Television, by Rod McLachlan, is about a young drug addict who is being considered to be featured on a reality TV program. This play makes a good case for not watching TV.

Far From Heaven, book by Richard Greenberg, music by Scott Frankel, lyrics by Michael Korie, is based on the film of the same title. It is an ambitious musical with a large cast and a full orchestra. It takes place in 1957 in Connecticut. A married woman discovers that her husband is gay, and is then attracted to a black gardener. A tragedy ensues. The problem is that the music is not memorable and the story is predictable and dull.

Cornelius,, by J. B. Priestley, will open on June 11. My comments will be in next week's column.























American Theatre Ballet (ABT) presented Shostakovich Trilogy, by Alexei Ratmansky. It consists of three one act ballets to the music of Dmitri Shostakovich. Symphony #9 received its world premiere by ABT on October 12, 2013. Chamber Symphony and Piano Concerto #1 received their premieres on May 30, 2013. The ballets are modern, fast moving, and feature the cream of the ABT dancers. Polina Seminova, Marcelo Gomes and especially Hernan Cornejo sparkled in the first ballet. David Hallberg was superb in the the slower moving second as an angst ridden, sad soul, and Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev delighted their fans with their speed and incredible movements. 

The New York City Ballet presented four ballets, three with music by Tschaikovsky, and two with choreography by Balanchine and two by Robbins. Serenade was the first ballet Balanchine created in America in 1935, and it remains a glorious ballet. His Tschaikovsky Suite No. 3 came thirty five years later and his creativity flourished. The fourth movement Tema con Variazioni is a tribute to classical ballet, and is the highlight of a magnificent ballet. The Cage and Andantino are Robbins' marvelous contributions to the company. All the ballets were brilliantly performed, with Tyler Peck and Joaquin de Luz closing the evening on a high note.

The 69th Annual Theatre World Awards Ceremony took place at The Music Box Theatre, followed by an afterparty at Bowlmor Lanes. It is always a delightful event and the actors honored well deserved the recognition. Among them, were Tom Hanks, Rob McClure and Valisia LeKae, and Alan Aldareceived the John Willis Award for Lifetime Achievement and Jonny Orsini the 5th Annual Dorothy Loudon Award. Among the presenters and performers were Nathan Lane, Ben Vereen, John Tartaglia and Lea Salonga. Peter Filichia was the very funny, clever host.

We had a Meet & Greet for the New York Stage and Film's 2013 Powerhouse Season at Vassar College. Among the stars present were Annabella Sciorra, Linda Lavin, Scott Elliott, Michael Wilson, Michael Mayer, Thomas Kail and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The League of Professional Theatre Women June Awards Luncheon was held at Sardi's. It is always a festive affair with four outstanding women, Peggy Eisenhauer, Judith Malina, Mia Katigbak andAshley Marinaccio, being honored. 

I returned to Sardi's twice that day. The second time was for a reception for Cyndi Lauper, who received her well deserved caricature.

MoMA presented A Damsel in Distress, by George Stevens, USA, 1937, a film which has dancing and singing by the immortal Fred Astaire, witty banter by George Burns and Gracie Allen, and the glorious music of George Gershwin. Unfortunately, the ridiculous story of an American dancer falling in love with an English daughter of a nobleman, taking place in their castle, is truly boring. The dance routines, however, by the three  stars are a joy to behold.

Ballet in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented Romeo & Juliet, music by Sergei Prokofiev, choreography by Yuri Grigorovich, from the Bolshoi Ballet from a live performance on May 12, 2013. This slimmed down version eliminates certain characters and scenes, and focuses on the lovers. Anna Nikulina (Juliet) is sublime, and her dancing was brilliant. This was a magnificent performance, one to remember. Alexander Volchkov was a perfect Romeo, and their duets were the highlight of a superb production. The rest of the cast. especially Mikhail Lobukhin (Tybalt) and Andrei Bolotin (Mercutio), and the Corps de Ballet were splendid. The orchestra played the score marvelously, under the baton of Andrei Anikhanov.
