Gene Kelly - The Legacy
An Evening with Patricia Ward Kelly
Gene Kelly was a joyous performer. A legendary dancer, director and choreographer, he brought astonishing grace, athleticism and masculinity to the big screen. He continues to delight and captivate us, yet we know little about him. During a unique evening, Patricia Ward Kelly — his widow, biographer and the person who knew him best — presents an intimate portrait of this dynamic and innovative artist who created some of the most memorable and iconic scenes in film history.

Patricia Kelly's compelling presentation combines rare and familiar film clips, previously unreleased audio recordings, personal memorabilia, and insights culled from her hours of interviews and conversations with her husband. This special live program makes for a remarkable experience praised as "a real treat" by Variety and hailed as "deeply moving" and "mesmerizing."

Hershey Felder as George Gershwin Alone Details
In George Gershwin Alone — which won Ovation Awards for Best Actor in a Musical (Hershey Felder) and Best Musical — the internationally acclaimed actor, playwright and Steinway concert artist Hershey Felder renders an intimate portrait of the legendary composer that provides a personal glimpse into Gershwin's early years, his personal life and his artistic genius. The evening is packed with many of Gershwin's most famous pieces, including "I Got Rhythm," "Someone to Watch Over Me," and of course, "Rhapsody in Blue." The first popular composer to use jazz as the foremost musical element in the serious concert hall, George Gershwin absorbed the musical styles, rhythms and sophistication of the American spirit and created a musical language that made its mark on both classical and popular music throughout the world. Hershey Felder brings to life the essence of the legendary composer and pianist, leading audiences through the fascinating rhythms of Gershwin's legendary songbook, while telling the tale of his tragically short life.

A great way to see a show at the McCallum Theatre is to organize 20 or more people who can attend as a group. Savings of up to 10% are available for many of our performances.

A typical group sales arrangement requires a non-refundable deposit to hold the tickets, with the balance due approximately 45 days prior to the show.

When you think about it, a group of 20 is easy to put together. It's ten couples, a birthday party, perhaps a church outing. All it takes to make it happen is a little advance planning and a phone call to our group sales manager.
