Friday night 03-22-13

On Broadway, Breakfast at Tiffany's, stage adaptation by Richard Greenberg, is a play based on Truman Capote's novella about a young woman from a small town living recklessly in New York. Emilia Clarke is the appealing young lady, but suffers in comparison with Audrey Hepburn, who starred in the film adaptation. The opening night party was held at the Edison Ballroom with guests Ian McKellen, Debbie Harry, Ben Vereen and many more.

Hands on a Hard Body, book by Doug Wright, lyrics by Amanda Green, music by Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green, is a musical based on a film of the same title. The cast is first rate, the music is pleasant, and the story about working class Americans competing in an endurance contest, keeping one hand on a truck is unusual for a Broadway musical. The opening night party took place at Roseland, with guests like Martha Plimpton, B.D.Wong and Jennifer Cody.

Silk Stockings, music and lyrics by Cole Porter, was part of the Musicals in Mufti series at the York Theatre. Ben Davis and Erin Davie starred in this entertaining revival. Michael Tucker, Jill Eikenberry and Anne Kaufman Schneider were guests at the opening night party in the music room at the theatre.

Debby Boone made her debut at Cafe Carlyle in Swing This, featuring songs of the 60's from her upcoming album, and she tells anecdotes about the celebrities and the entertainment in Las Vegas at that time, when her father Pat Boone appeared in the clubs there. Marilyn Maye, Mary Beth Peil, Tovah Feldshuh and Debby's husband Gabriel Ferrer, her daughter Dustin Romano, her brother-in-law Rafael Ferrer and son-in-law Andrew Romano were among the guests on opening night.

The Vineyard Theatre's 30th Aniversary Annual Gala attracted many guests, including Billy Crudup, Judy Kuhn, John Cullum and many more. It is always a delightful occasion.

The Drama Desk held a panel discussion at Sardi's, with David Hyde Pierce, Jayne Houdyshell, Kristine Nielsen and Bertie Carvel, and moderator Ronald Rand.

Film Society of Lincoln Center presented press screenings for the 20th New York African Film Festival April 3-9.

Guelwaar, by Ousmene Sembene, Senegal, 1992, is about the disappearance o a body of an important Christian activist, that turns up in a Moslem cemetery. How it is found and retrieved is the subject of this interesting film, which shows the tension between the two religions in this African nation. It is a well made film.

TGV, by Moussa Toure, France/Senegal/Germany, 1997, is an adventure film about a dangerous bus trip taken by some passengers between Senegal and Guinea. There is a tribal uprising on the border; therefore, it is an extremely risky and exciting trip. It is a very enjoyable film.

Death for Sale, by Faouzi Bensaidi, Belgium/France/Morocco, 2011, is a story about three aimless youths, engaging in petty thefts in a city in Morocco. One of them becomes enamored with a prostitute and trouble ensues. It is a well acted, disturbing film, which reveals the corrupt crime by police as well as criminals.

Nairobi Half Life, by David Tosh Gitonga, Kenya, 2012, is a powerful film about a young man, who comes to the capital to be an actor. In order to survive, he becomes a member of a gang of petty crooks, which has tragic consequences for all involved. Some of the scenes, especially, in the jail, are quite shocking. It also reveals the corruption by police as well as the criminals. It is a tough, realistic look at the seamy  side of life in the African nation.

MoMA is presenting Canadian Front 2013 March 13-18. Before My Heart Fails, by Sebastien Rose, 2012, is the story of a sixteen-year old girl, one of three petty criminals, who suffers remorse when one of her victims dies. She tries to establish a relationship with his widow, with unforeseen consequences. It is a a very well acted, absorbing film.

Laurence Anyways, by Xavier Dolan, 2012, is a powerful look at the relationship over many years between a couple, whose lives are upset, when the male (an excellent Melvil Poupard) realizes he is a female trapped in a male body. It is an unusually frank film dealing with the problem of gender. The realism of the confrontations between the two principal actors (the female is Suzanne Clement) is acting at its finest. I heartily recommend this adult film.

I Killed My Mother, by Xavier Dolan, 2009, is a film about the tense relationship between a 16-year-old son (Xavier Dolan) and his divorced mother (Anne Dorval). Their verbal fights are powerful and Dolan reveals himself as a multitalented filmmaker. It is an impressive film.

Blackbird, by Jason Buxton, 2012, is a devastating film about a disaffected 16-year-old high school student, who, in anger, sends a threat via the internet to kill his classmates at his school. The police take it seriously and, in a raid of his house, find his father's collection of unlicensed rifles. The young man is arrested, and we follow his horrifying experiences in the courtroom and in jail. As a major problem today with student violence, this film hits the mark. Again, it is a powerful and disturbing film, well made and well acted.

Opera in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented Cavalleria Rusticana, by Mascagni, & Pagliacci, by Leoncavallo, from Teatro alla Scala from a performance on January 20, 1011. The singing and acting of both operas were on a high level. The productions, however, suffered from very serious manhandling of the two operas by the director, Mario Martone. For some unknown reason, he has the Cavalleria's opening scene take place in a brothel and Pagliacci's opening scene take place with prostitutes walking the street and one being picked up in a car. If this is supposed to titillate the audience, it fails. Both scenes have no place in these fine one act operas. Salvatore Licitra (Turiddu) and Luciana D'Intino (Santuzza) in Cavalleria and Jose Cura (Canio) and Oksana Dyka (Nedda) in Pagliacci sang and acted very well, and certainly D'Intino was the highlight with her strong singing and fine acting. Daniel Harding conducted the two operas competently
