  • Title: IAN KELLY, Actor, Writer, Presenter
    Descriptive info: BEAU BRUMMELL.. Written by.. Ron Hutchinson.. Produced by.. The Ideas Foundry.. Directed by.. Simon Green.. Beau Brummell opened on May 9th 2006 at 59e59 Theater, New York to coincide with the launch of Kelly’s biography of Brummell and the Anglomania Fashion Exhibition at the Metropolitan Art Museum, New York.. New York Times:.. ‘This story of a man who is remembered for his clothes begins with the title character (Ian Kelly) stark naked.. He is in the tub, holding a razor to his throat and threatening suicide, but he allows his valet, Austin (Ryan Early), to stop him.. Mr.. Kelly is extremely funny, engaging and intensely sympathetic as Brummell, tossing out grand observations ( Excess is the antithesis of style, How can one be lonely with a looking glass? ) as if to the manner born while conveying with aching pathos the quiet agonies of a ruined man trying not to see through his delusions.. New Jersey Star Ledger:.. ‘The dramatic engine that pushes this 90 minute play is a fit, assured Ian Kelly, a certified golden boy of a glittering age, cutting a debonair figure as Brummell.. Easy but elegant in his manners, more cool than cruel in attitude, Kelly depicts the bon vivant to his fingertips.. Ian Kelly brings out the faded glory of Beau Brummell’.. theatermania.. com:.. Naked talent: ‘As the legendary half-mad dandy, Ian Kelly -- who has written his own just-published biography, Beau Brummell: The Ultimate Man of Style – nakedly displays his rich endowment of talents in his first-rate portrait of the first gentleman of fashion.. Not only does he emerge from Brummell’s bathtub au naturel, showing off an imposing physique and more skin than has been seen on the New York stage in some time, but he also gets way below the skin of this fascinating man, capturing the hauteur and self-confidence that remain despite his descent into madness.. Though Kelly doesn t offer the audience anything to eat, as he does in his other show in the festival, Cooking for Kings, he provides considerable food for thought about the fleeting nature of celebrity in his sharp characterization – not to mention considerable eye-candy.. If Paris Hilton is smarter than she seems, she ll come to see this show -- and then take up a useful trade pronto!’.. New York Theatre Wire:.. ‘Kelly, guided by Simon Green s sensitive direction, turns the play about the debouched dandy into a moving testimony to friendship, pride and endurance…the result is a blending of scholarship and theater that is entertaining and enlightening in the best sense of both words.. Even those whose interest in fashion is limited to what color T-shirt to wear with their jeans will find Beau Brummell fascinating.. Backstage Magazine, New York:.. ‘In Beau Brummell, part of the Brits Off Broadway festival at 59E59 Theaters, we first see Ian Kelly standing naked in a bathtub with a razor poised menacingly at his throat.. For several reasons the image is certainly jaw-dropping and nicely symbolic: in this two-hander by Ron Hutchinson, the playwright seeks to portray a man stripped of the wondrous world of his own creation.. The character is quixotic, unable to face reality, and bordering on madness, and Ian Kelly adds to this touches of the witty, the dashing, the poignant -- and certainly the interesting; the playwright does make a case for Brummell as the first celebrity: As Austin puts it, What were you famous for? Just for being famous.. A further compelling picture of a modern hero by Ian Kelly -- yes, our same actor – is also available in the same Kelly’s biography: Beau Brummell: The Ultimate Man of Style’.. nytheater.. com:.. ‘Quick wit, gradual reveals, and terrific acting combine for an evening that is highly amusing.. Lights rise on a hysterical, suicidal, and buck-naked Brummell finishing his bath.. Ian Kelly, who has written  ...   in 2006 in rep with Ron Hutchinson’s Beau Brummell in which Kelly played the Beau.. These reviews are mainly from the second, larger space production of Cooking for Kings, produced by The Ideas Foundry, a new UK based production outfit supporting new writing across all media.. Anthony Bourdain:.. A magnificent work.. Ian Kelly is at the vanguard of the new rock’n’roll of culinary literature.. Food Arts Magazine:.. The most inspiring play in New York this year.. The Times (Giles Coren).. : Ian Kelly – actor, writer and chef: the Dirk Bogarde or Sam Shepard of the kitchen…I was really truly bowled over.. New York Theater Wire:.. Kelly s performance is as tart as a lemon, as sweet as chocolate, as savory as a thick stew.. And finally, it is as satisfying as a banquet.. From early childhood most people learn to equate food with love.. But few take the metaphor to the same extremes as legendary French chef Antonin Careme, whose life story is told in Ian Kelly s one-man-show Cooking for Kings.. Kelly fills his play with tantalizing details and garnishes them with ironic wit and clever wordplay.. As a performer, Kelly has boundless energy and tremendous powers of concentration and he makes a technically difficult play look deceptively easy.. While Careme, who is actually cooking, grabs bowls, pots and utensils from an overhead rack and chops, stirs and heats, he describes his activities with the zest of Julia Child.. And Careme is accomplished at multitasking.. He is never at a loss for words.. He never loses his train of thought.. If Careme s story is fascinating because of the famous people he knew, the tumultuous times he lived in and the many innovations he made in the art of cooking (from the dishes he made to the hat he wore), it is powerful on a more personal level.. Kelly portrays the great chef as vain and sarcastic but also vulnerable and ultimately tragic.. ‘Kelly is unforgettably compelling as Careme’ by Joe Hurley.. This prolific performer Ian Kelly has written a book, Cooking for Kings, and adapted it into a solo show…Careme, in the person of the agile, fast-moving Kelly… seems as adroit at handling the myriad pots, pans, colanders and other utensils that hang above him as he is at telling his stories so it easy to become convinced that, if asked, he could effortlessly whip up one of Careme’s multi-coursed banquets…Every instant of Cooking for Kings is compelling and many come close to defying belief.. As eloquently and wryly delivered by the remarkable actor and writer Ian Kelly the show ends up delivering an unforgettable portrait of the culinary world and the world’s first celebrity chef.. A BUSY DAY.. A Busy Day, the lost comedy by Fanny Burney commissioned by Sheridan for the 1800 season at Covent Garden, played first in Bristol in 1994 and then on the London fringe in 1995 before its eventual West End production, of 2000, which opened first at the Bristol Old Vic and later transferred to the Lyric, Shaftesbury Avenue.. Ian Kelly played Frank Cleveland in both productions and helped champion its West End premiere, which he co-produced.. ‘Worth it all for the stand-out performance of Ian Kelly…the comic genius of a young Alex Jennings’.. ‘notable for its discovery of Ian Kelly whose flamboyant and perfectly timed performance as the young coxcomb Frank out-fops Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and out-camps Graham Norton’.. The Independent.. ‘A beautifully observed performance’.. The Daily Mail.. ‘Ian Kelly is irresistibly objectionable as the young ne’er-do-well’.. John Peter, The Sunday Times.. ‘Another red-head to watch is the rising star Ian Kelly’.. Mail on Sunday.. ‘Ian Kelly truly shines’.. The Evening Standard.. ‘The funniest performance on stage in London is Ian Kelly in the Kings Head production of Fanny Burney’s A Busy Day – go see a star in the making’.. Maureen Paton, LBC Radio..

    Descriptive info: VOINA (WAR).. A film by Alexei Balabanov.. Ian Kelly - Best Actor Nomination Montreal International Film Festival, 2002.. ‘War’ was filmed all over the Caucasus, in Chechnya, Ossetia, but also in Siberia, Moscow and St Petersburg.. The story, told from the point of view of Russian soldier of an Englishman (Ian Kelly) taken captive in Chechnya and set free in order to find the ransom for his girlfriend (Ingeborge Dapkunaite) took several months to film and featured white water action stunts as well as a bleakly Russian take on Chechnya… and westerners.. The film was a critical and commercial hit in Russia, winning numerous awards.. Ian Kelly was nominated for Best Actor at the Montreal International Film Festival.. London Film Festival.. Derek Malcolm.. The Guardian.. Monday, 11.. November 2002.. No native director of any consequence has painted the corruption of contemporary Russia with a beadier accuracy than Alexei Balabanov, even if most of his films are weakened by commercial considerations.. War, like Brother and Of Freaksand Men, spares no one, while at the same time shrewdly eyeing up its public.. It is set in Chechnya, where robbers and bloodthirsty clan leaders fight Russian soldiers who don t want to be there - led, according to Balabanov, by idiots.. A vicious guerrilla leader captures two soon-to-be-married English actors (Ian Kelly and Ingaborga Dapkunaitel) apparently touring Hamlet, and a group of Russians.. He slits the throats of the Russians, except for Alexei Chadov s computer operator.. Then he sends the actor and the computer operator home to raise a ransom for the fiancee.. The actor can t get the money but, with enough cash perhaps to satisfy the guerrilla leader, he asks the computer operator to take him back to the war zone.. The Russian, who owes him nothing but is desperate to save his badly wounded commander, consents to go.. War, however, is a very dirty business in these parts and, while the actor, in order to raise more money, shoots the scene with a digital camera, his protector shoots those who get in their way with his gun.. War would be little more than a slightly illogical and bloody adventure story were it not shot and directed with such conviction, painting the bloody mess of the war and the corruption back home with equal frankness.. It is difficult to tear your eyes from these two men: the Russian an ordinary young man adapting to circumstances in a way only his macho father would admire, and the Brit  ...   their Chechen foes.. The director saw himself as grinding a Western liberal s nose into the hard realities of what Russia thinks it is doing in Chechnya, said Ian Kelly, the British actor who stars in the film.. He and the Lithuanian actress Ingeborga Dapkunaite, playing his British girlfriend, were both protected by bodyguards to deter real life kidnappers during filming in the North Caucasus.. The cast and crew were on location in the mountains on September 11, when the attacks on New York and Washington cast the film in a new light.. The attacks came as little surprise to Mr Balabanov.. The numbers who died are not important, he said.. What is important is that the terrorists wanted to kill the maximum amount of unbelievers, that is you and me.. Recent developments in the region have made the film, to be premiered next week and expected to be this year s Russian-produced box office sensation, even more topical.. The Chechen kidnappers first abduct the British couple in neighbouring Georgia.. Presumably, they are smuggled into Russia via the Pankisi gorge, claimed by America to be a safe haven for al-Qa eda sympathisers.. According to Mr Balabanov, the plot was inspired by the fate of four telecommunications engineers, three Britons and one New Zealander, kidnapped, murdered and then beheaded by their Chechen captors in 1998.. The on-screen events also suggest parallels with the ordeal of the British aid workers Camilla Carr and Jon James, seized in Chechnya and tortured but released alive earlier the same year.. Mr Balabanov showed some of the cast videos of the executions, torture and beatings of hostages filmed by Chechen kidnappers in order to terrorise their families or taunt the security forces.. While Mr Balabanov s films have been seen as the cinematic expression of President Putin s promise to waste Chechen terrorists, War is a far cry from the jingoism favoured by the Kremlin.. The character Ivan is an idealist loner in a world of corruption, betrayal and greed, with parts of the Russian state often in league with the Chechen gangsters they pretend to be fighting.. Despite its patriotic message and the cult status of their previous films, if the makers of War thought that they would receive special help from the military in shooting the film, they were disappointed.. Not only did they have to pay for all co-operation from the armed forces, but army incompetence and bureaucracy delayed the supply of weapons and ammunition and put filming weeks behind schedule..
