GENE KELLY: THE LEGACY (The Torrance Cultural Arts Foundation: Special Events and Guest Artists Series)

Join us for an evening with the wife of the late Gene Kelly, Patricia Ward Kelly.  Legendary dancer, director, and choreographer Gene Kelly brought astonishing grace and athleticism to the movies.  His engaging onscreen personality is so accessible we feel like we know him.  In fact, we know very little.

In this unique, live one-woman show that has been called “mesmerizing,” Patricia Ward Kelly – his wife and biographer – gives us the story.  Taking audiences behind the scenes, she presents an intimate portrait of this innovative artist who gave us such iconic works as An American in Paris and Singin’ in the Rain.

Using brilliant film clips, previously unreleased audio recordings, personal keepsakes, and stories he shared with her over their decade together, Patricia Kelly guides us on an unforgettable journey into the life and heart of the man who changed the look of dance on film and become one of the world’s most beloved stars.
