Off-Broadway, Old Jews Telling Jokes, created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent, has a fine five member cast telling jokes on Jewish subjects for eighty minutes. The jokes are old; but if you haven't heard them before, they will entertain you. We celebrated the opening party at Ben's Deli with delicious corn beef, turkey, roast beef, egg salad sandwiches, with guests like Mary Testa and Jackie Hoffman enjoyed.

Title and Dead, by Will Eno, is a one man show, featuring Conor Lovett, as a stranger in a foreign land, talking for seventy minutes. It is supposed to be a deep existential monologue, but iI was unimpressed.
 
She's Of A Certain Age, by Susan Charlotte, features a fine four member cast, in a four scene one act play about a mother and daughter and their relationships with the men in their lives. The opening night party took place in the lounge of Theatre Row with guests like Louise Lasser, Fritz Weaver and Diahnne Abbott, proud mother of cast member Drena De Niro.
 
February House, music and lyrics by Gabriel Kahane, book by Seth Bockley, is a musical about a number of artists who live together in Brooklyn during 1940-1941. Some became quite famous like Gypsy Rose Lee, Carson McCullers, W. H. Auden and Benjamin Britten. The concept is interesting, and the cast is quite good. The opening night party took place at Five Points restaurant with the cast and Alan Alda.
 
The revival My Children! My Africa! by Athol Fugard, takes place in a school room with a schoolmaster and two students, one white and one black, and is essentially a debate about apartheid and the future of South African identity. The three actors are excellent, but the play could be shortened for stronger effect..
 
The revival The Common Pursuit, by Simon Gray, is about six English university students, who decide to publish a literary magazine. We follow their professional and personal lives over twenty years. Unfortunately, the characters are not very interesting.
 
The New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players presented a magnificent production of Iolanthe. The cast was excellent. The orchestra, under the direction of Albert Bergeret, played the score wonderfully. The audience enjoyed a delightful afternoon, and responded with enthusiastic applause. Thank goodness, New York has this company. It keeps the brilliant works of Gilbert & Sullivan alive. Every fan should support them.

I returned to see The Gershwin's Porgy and Bess and End of the Rainbow. I recommend both highly.
 
The Actors Fund Gala honored Harry Belafonte, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara and David Steiner. Among the guests at the Marriott Marquis were Bebe Neuwirth, Tyne Daly, Angela Lansbury and Christopher Plummer.
 
The 57th Annual Obie Awards took place at Webster Hall. Among the winners were Linda Lavin, Susan Pourfar and Santino Fontana. Among the presenters were Lily Rabe, Jonathan Pryce and Michael McKean.

New Dramatists honored Bernadette Peters at its 63rd Annual Spring Luncheon at the Marriott Marquis. Elaine Stritch , Joel Grey and John Dossett performed and Jim Dale introduced the guests, among whom were David Hyde Pierce, Judith Light, Chuck Cooper and Patrick Page.
 
Outer Critics Circle Theatre Awards were presented at a dinner at Sard's. Among the winners were Tracie Bennett,  Audra McDonald, James Earl Jones, James Corden and Denis O'Hare, and among the presenters were Jerry Stiller, Anne Meara, Josh Gad and Montegp Glover.
 
A press conference was held for the 12th Annual New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) at Misha Nicole Boutique, where I met many of the film directors, including Junaid Ahmed More Than Just a Game, Vikram Gandhi Kumare, Kabir Chopra Strangers and Suneil Anand, son of the late famed director Dev Anand. Aroon Shivdasani is the director of this magnificent showcase of fine Indian films.


The Film Society of Lincoln Center held press screenings of Open Roads: New Italian Cinema June 8-14. I saw Terraferma, by Emanuele Crialese, Italy/France, 2011, a terrific film that takes place on an island near Sicily. A poor family of fishermen rescues an illegal African pregnant woman and her son in the sea, and shelters them in their home, which is against the law. How they resolve this conflict is the main theme of this beautiful film. This tremendous problem of illegal aliens wanting to achieve a better life in Europe is portrayed exquisitely in this marvelous film. I recommend it highly. Seven Acts of Mercy, by Gianluca and Massimiliano De Serio, Italy/Romania,2011, is an ambitious work, inspired by the painting by Caravaggio, featuring the seven Christian acts of mercy. Updated to the present, we follow a young homeless woman and an old man suffering with cancer through scenes illustrating acts such as feeding the hungry and clothing the naked. The scenes are sad and depressing. The two actors, Robert Herlizka and Olimpia Melinte, give powerful performances. The Legend of Kaspar Hauser, by Davide Manuli, Italy, 2012, is a weird film, based on the legend of a "wild boy", appearing on the streets of Nuremberg in 1828. In this film, a strange young man is swept ashore on an almost deserted Italian island in modern times, and, at first, he is welcomed, but afterwards killed. The film is in black and white. All the characters on the island are strange, and it is hard to understand what the point of the film is.
