On Broadway, Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella is a delight for the entire family. The cast is superb. Laura Osnes is beautiful in the title role and Santino Fontana is a charming prince. It is a splendid evening in the theatre. The opening night party was held at Gotham Hall, with guests Joel Grey, Bernadette Peters, AnnaSophia Robb, Rita Moreno and many others too numerous to mention

Off-Broadway, The Madrid, by Liz Flahive, is a play about an elementary school teacher (Edie Falco), who, unexpectedly, walks out of her classroom, leaves her husband and daughter without saying goodbye, and moves into a sleazy apartment. We never learn why she does this and, consequently, the audience cannot find any sympathy for her. 
 
Belleville, by Amy Herzog, is about a young, married American couple living in Paris. She is immature and he is a liar. Their life begins to unravel tragically. Maria Dizzia gives a fearless performance as the young wife
 
A revival of Talley's Folly, by Lanford Wilson, is a sweet, sentimental play about a Jewish accountant (Danny Burstein) pursuing an uptight Protestant woman (Sarah Paulson) one night inn Missouri. They end together happily ever after. The two actors give great performances.
 
Jackie, by Elfriede Jelinek, is a one woman show that deconstructs Jacqueline Kennedy, revealing her insecurities, her frustrations and her shallow personality. Tina Benko gives an outstanding performance. The opening night party took place at Faces & Names.
 
The North Pool, by Rajiv Joseph, is a far-fetched play about a vice principal (Stephen Barker Turner) , who  interviews a student, born in Syria (Babak Tafti), about vandalism taking place in a high school. Things are revealed during their confrontation which defy belief. The opening night party took place at Vic & Anthony's Steakhouse with guests Colman Domingo, Sharon Washington and Nicky Silver.
 
Philip J. Smith was honored by the Theatre Development Fund (TDF) at the Edison Ballroom with Bernadette Peters heading the entertainment.
 
Judith Light was honored at Miscast, the MCC Annual Revue and Gala at the Hammerstein Ballroom, with Victor Garber as the host Julianna Margulies, Lily Rabe and Zosia Mamet were among the guests..
 
First Time Fest, a new film festival, presented their closing night awards at the Player's Club. Martin Scorsese presented an award to Darren Aronofsky, with Ellen Burstyn as the host. Gay Talese, Christine Vachon, Tony Bennett, whose daughter Johanna is one of the co-founders of the festival, were among the guests.
 
A press conference was held for The Nance, by Douglas Carter Beane. It has a wonderful cast, headed by Nathan Lane.
 
A press conference was held for the revival of Pippin. It also has a great cast, headed by Patina Miller and Matthew James Thomas in the title role. The cast performed three marvelous numbers.
 
The Commercial Theater Institute's Robert Whitehead Award was presented to Jeffrey Finn. Sam Gold and Jack O'Brien presented the award at a reception at Sardi's.

Film Society at Lincoln Center and MoMA are presenting press screenings for New Directors/ New Films March 20-31.

Blue Caprice, by Alexandre Moors, USA, 2012, is about two loners (Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond), who shoot innocent victims at random.The film was inspired by actual events, where the area around Washington D.C. was terrorized,  because of these senseless killings. It is a well made film.

 
Emperor Visits the Hell, by Tang Huang You Di Fu, China/Canada, 2013, is based on a 16th-century Chinese novel. Although well received at the Vancouver Film Festival, I found it difficult to understand and enjoy.

 
The Color of the Chameleon, by Emil Christov, Bulgaria, 2012, mocks spying, as a weird man is recruited to spy on members of a book club. It makes fun of the the whole idea of spying in society and the avalanche of ridiculous spy films. It is entertaining.

 
Kuf (Mold), by Ali Aydin, Turkey/Germany, 2012, is a fine film, about a widower searching for information about the disappearance of his son, eighteen years before as a university student. Ercan Kesal is superb as the father, who works as a railroad inspector in this sad tale.

 
Tower, by Kazik Radwanski, Canada, 2012, consists mainly of close-ups of an uninteresting young man in his thirties, who works in an uninspiring job, while carousing at night. We follow his boring life, which is dispiriting for the viewer.

 
A Hijacking, by Tobias Lindholm, Denmark, 2012, is one of the most powerful films of the series. Somali pirates hijack a Danish cargo ship, keeping the crew hostage for months, as the owners try to negotiate with the pirates. We see the miserable conditions on board the ship and the constant fear of the crew being killed by these heartless thugs. It is realistic, expertly filmed. and will leave a deep impression on the viewer.

 
Burn it Up Djassa, by Lonesome Solo, Ivory Coast/France, 2012, is a grim look at life in the ghetto, consisting of gambling, prostitution and violence. We see a young man go to his tragic end in this depressing view of life

 
Rengaine, by Rachid Djaidani, France, 2012, is about a black African male wanting to marry a white Algerian woman in Paris. Both families are against this interracial marriage. It reveals the deep prejudice in this society.

 
The Shine of Day, by Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel, Austria, 2012, is about a successful actor (Phillip Hochmair), who suddenly meets an unknown uncle (Walter Saabel), a former circus performer, and they form an unlikely bond. It is also a realistic look at the life in the theatre. It is an unusual, low key film, that features two splendid performances by the two actors.

 
The Act of Killing, by Joshua Oppenheimer, Denmark, 2012 is a documentary, that interviews paramilitary soldiers, who think of themselves as gangsters, and were responsible for over a million deaths in Indonesia after the military takeover. It is a tough film to watch. The cruelty and lack of respect for human dignity is appalling. It is a well made film and deserves to be seen. It will leave a deep impression, not easy to erase.

 
Soldate Jeannette, by Daniel Hoesl, Austria, 2012, is about an elegant lady, who is actually a con artist. When evicted from her apartment, she flees to the woods and takes refuge on a farm.  The film is beautifully photographed and the acting is superb. 

 
Les Coquilettes, by Sophie Letourneur, France, 2012, is about three young women at the Locarno Film Festival, looking to sleep with young men, smoke, drink lots of alcohol and behave in an immature way. They never stop talking about their idiotic problems, and one can only hope they will grow up.  

 
Leones, by Jazmin Lopez, Argentina/France/The Netherlands,2012, tells a strange tale of five young people wandering through a forest. It, will end in tragedy. It is slow moving and the characters are uninteresting.

 
Reality by Matteo Garrone, Italy, 2012, is about a fishmonger, who auditions for a television reality show. Becoming obsessed with the idea of winning fame and fortune, his family life is shattered. It is a scathing look at the pernicious influence of the reality shows on television and their effect on much of the population. It is an interesting film.

 
Ballet in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented An Evening With Crystal Pite from the Nederlans Dans Theater filmed at a performance on February 7, 2013. Two contemporary ballets by the choreographer Crystal Pite , with music by Owen Belton, are performed. Parade is the more interesting, featuring a parade of clowns and a marching band, and is amusing. Frontier reveals a darker view of life, and is reflected in the dance movements. Both ballets are danced well by the superb company.



03-07-13 (L-R) Sam Gold. honoree Jeffrey Finn. Jack O'Brien at the Commercial Theater Institute's Robert Whitehead Award at Sardi's. 234 West 44th St. Wednesday afternoon 03-06-13
