A truly legendary dancer, director, actor and choreographer, Gene Kelly is one of the most captivating performers the world has ever seen. But despite his enormous fame, he remained a rather enigmatic figure. Now Patricia Ward Kelly -- his widow, biographer and closest confidante -- presents a one-of-a-kind portrait of the innovative artist with film clips (both familiar and rare), previously unreleased audio recordings, personal memorabilia and, of course, her unique insight. Hailed by Variety as "deeply moving," this profoundly personal -- and yet also universal -- evening inspired Entertainment Tonight's Leonard Maltin to declare: "I felt privileged to be there."

Theater is beautiful but has a major issue...terrible seats! The show lasts 2+ hours and the seats make is a royal pain the butt! The PA system could have been louder, especially for a play with this much dialog. Actors were good, but Chamberlin was a amazing.
Catherine Sloper, who stands to inherit a fortune from her ailing physician father, is a plain-looking young woman living under his malevolent scrutiny, as well as his well-meaning but cold-hearted demeanor. Dr. Sloper disapproves of Catherine’s passionate suitor Morris Townsend, certain that the penniless young man has proposed marriage to win Catherine’s inheritance. Catherine’s too much in love to consider this potential betrayal, and when circumstances lead her to misinterpret Morris’s intentions, The Heiress reaches an unforgettable conclusion that brilliantly supports the richly psychological nuance brought to the preceding romance.
Running Time: 2 hours and 20 minutes, with one intermission.
