GENE KELLY THE LEGACY: AN EVENING WITH PATRICIA WARD KELLY
Biographer and film historian Mrs Kelly [Patricia Ward Kelly] takes audiences behind the scenes and shares an intimate story of her late husband Gene Kelly, the man who helped create some of the most memorable scenes in film history. This unique, live performance—praised as “a real treat” by Variety—combines rare and familiar film clips, never released audio recordings, memorabilia, and personal insights culled from hours of interviews with her husband. Mrs. Kelly, whose presentation has been described as “mesmerizing,” reveals a very personal side of this American legend and his perspective on the innovative work for which he wished to be remembered.
Biographer and film historian Patricia Ward Kelly is the widow of Gene Kelly.
Patricia serves as Trustee of The Gene Kelly Image Trust and Creative Director of Gene Kelly: The Legacy, a corporation established to commemorate Gene Kelly worldwide.
Mrs. Kelly lives in Los Angeles and is completing the memoir about her late husband. Her one-woman show that recently sold out in Los Angeles and at Lincoln Center in New York, “Gene Kelly: The Legacy - an Evening With Patricia Ward Kelly,” is currently on a mult-city international tour.
