    Gene Kelly Centennial Tribute

    Tuesday, December 25 – Sunday, December 30, 2012

    One of the things that makes the films of Gene Kelly so indelible is that they manage to make you forget you are watching ‘just’ a musical while simultaneously containing some of the most spectacular dance sequences you’ve ever seen. From the title song in SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN to his duet with Leslie Caron in AN AMERICAN IN PARIS, Gene Kelly remains a giant of onscreen dance and is just as thrilling to watch today as he was 50 years ago.

    “As director and choreographer, dancer and singer, acrobat and actor, Gene Kelly was one of the most vital and indispensable figures in the history of the American film musical… From out of the bijou white-walled penthouse suites in which Astaire and Rogers would rotate like figurines on a music box Kelly took dancing down into streets and squares and parks… The choreographic language that Kelly introduced into the American musical carried the very first hint of the vernacular, of slang.”- Gilbert Adair, The Independent (London)
