On the Town With Aubrey Reuben

Off- Broadway, I'm A Stranger Here Myself, written and performed by Mark Nadler, is basically a cabaret performance, with two other musicians. He sings songs from the Weimar Republic in English and German, and shows projections of the various composers, photos of the period and clips from some films.

We photographed most of the Tony Nominees at a Press Junket at the Millennium Hotel. There were many worthy nominees and I look forward to the Tony Awards on
June 9.

Sutton Foster and Jesse Tyler Ferguson announced the 67th Annual Tony Nominations at the New York Public Library for Performing Arts. Vanya and Sonia and Marsha and Spike was one of the four best plays nominated, Kinky Boots among the Best Musicals, Nathan Lane Best Actor and Cicely Tyson Best Actress. All deserve to win.

The New York City Ballet began its Spring season with an all Balanchine four ballet program. Three of them were popular crowd pleasers. Who Cares? features the glorious music of George Gershwin and the equally glorious dancing of Tiler Peck and Robert Fairhild. Tarantella, music by Louis Moreau Gottschalk, was danced by the adorable Megan Fairchild and Joaquin De Luz, which received a well deserved tumultuous ovation. Stars and Stripes, music by John Philip Sousa, is a delight, with a brilliant Third Campaign led by Daniel Ulbricht, and a charming Fourth Campaign by a stunning Ashley Bouder and Andrew Veyette. Ivesiana, music by Charles Ives, a dark ballet, in more ways than one, was the fourth ballet.





















Katie Finneran and Kathleen Marshall were honored at the 2013 Creatve Alternatives of New York (CANY) The Pearl Gala Celebrating 30 Years at the Edison Ballroom. The host was Ann Hampton Callaway and among the guests were Dick Latessa, Victor Garber, Cady Huffman and Judith Light.

Daniel Lawson
received the TDF/Irene Sharaff Young Master Award from Julianna Margulies at a ceremony at the Hudson Theatre. Among the other presenters were Charlotte Moore and Santo Loquasto.

The New York Pops 30th Birthday Gala celebrated with a dinner dance following the concert honoring Frank Loesser, Jule Styne and Danny Kaye. Among the performers, who attended the dance, were Laura Benanti, Laura Osnes, Stephanie J. Block, Will Chase and Leslie Uggams.

Casablanca, by Michael Curtiz, USA, 1942, is a classic. The story of refugees during World War II in Morocco has an all star cast, that makes this one of the most memorable films ever made. Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt, Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet all give outstanding performances. As Time Goes By is the song that no one can forget, as is this wonderful film.

The Lodger, by John Brahm, USA, 1944, is a mystery story about Jack the Ripper (Laird Cregar). It stars the beautiful Merle Oberon as a music hall artist, and features her in two songs on stage. She is delightful. George Sanders, Cedric Hardwicke and Sara Allgood star in this entertaining thriller.

Roman Holiday, by William Wyler, USA, 1953, is a charming film about a runaway princess (the first leading role for Audrey Hepburn, for which she won the Academy Award as Best Actress) in Rome. She is found asleep by a journalist (Gregory Peck) and a series of delightful adventures follow. It is a wonderful film from beginning to end, and is filmed entirely in Rome.

Berlin Express, by Jacques Tourneur, USA, 1948, is the usual mystery on a train, when a person is killed. What makes this film interesting is the actual film footage of destroyed Frankfurt and Berlin after World War II. A fine cast, starring Robert Ryan, Merle Oberon and Paul Lukas, make this unbelievable plot bearable to watch.

Letter from an Unknown Woman, by Max Ophuls, USA, 1948, is a weepy melodrama about the obsessive love of a young girl (a glorious Joan Fontaine) for an older musician (a handsome Louis Jourdan). She bears him a son, but marries another man. Their reunion later in life, when he does not remember her, results in her humiliation. This is a film romantics will enjoy.

The Stranger, by Orson Welles, USA, 1946, is a far-fetched story of an ex-Nazi (Orson Welles) living in a small town in Connecticut. An investigator, played by Edward G. Robinson, tracks him down. It is mainly remarkable for showing footage of film shot in German concentration camps, when they were liberated during World War II. Loretta Young was the third lead actor in the movie, and it is a pleasure to see all three fine stars on film.

Highway, by Deepak Rauniyar, Nepal, 2012, is a film about passengers on a bus trip to to Katmandu. With flashbacks, we learn why they are traveling and the problems they have. One has a pregnant wife from another man. A young woman is facing an unwanted marriage. The driver of the bus is seeing an exotic dancer, who no longer wants him. A transvestite is beaten in a discoteque. They are an unhappy bunch of people. A film from Nepal is rare, but this film will not attract many viewers to the country.

Opera in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented a magnificently sung Il Trovatore, by Verdi, from a performance from the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona, which was performed on December 22, 2009. Four wonderful singers, Marco Berti,  Fiorenza Cedolins,  Luciana d'Intino and Vittorio Vitelli, sang powerfully and beautifully, and the orchestra played the score splendidly, under the baton of Marco Armiliato. The set was bare, with curtains at the back. The two female singers leads wore the same unattractive dress throughout the opera. The set and costume designer will not be mentioned. This grand opera was missing the adjective. It could have been staged as a concert version. That said, it was a joy to listen to one of the superb operas in the repertoire.
