Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

On the evening of Satur­day, Oct. 10, Gene Kelly’s widow tells the story of the renowned dancer, ac­tor, di­rec­tor, and chore­og­ra­pher at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.).

Gene Kelly: The Legacy, a one-woman show with Pa­tri­cia Ward Kelly, fea­tures film clips, pre­vi­ously un­re­leased au­dio record­ings, per­sonal keep­sakes, and sto­ries he shared with her over their decade to­gether. Kelly is known for dozens of films, in­clud­ing An Amer­i­can in Paris and Sin­gin’ in the Rain. For The Cheyenne So­cial Club, a com­edy di­rected by Kelly and star­ring James Stewart and Henry Fonda, Kelly worked with J.W. Eaves to build an en­tire Western town in Santa Fe — later known as the Eaves Movie Ranch. The show be­gins at 7 p.m. Tick­ets are $10 to $35; a VIP re­cep­tion ($75, in­cludes ticket) ben­e­fit­ing The Ac­tors Fund fol­lows. Call the Len­sic: 505-988-1234 or visit www.tick­etssantafe.org.— P.W.
