East Liberty native and KST namesake Gene Kelly helped to shape the Hollywood musical, both on and off screen. Join us in a celebration of his legacy with a day of classic movie musicals on the big screen. Catch one film, or take in a double feature and experience our historic theater—built in 1914 as Hollywood was on the rise—as it first began. THE WIZ A beloved film version of the smash Broadway musical, The Wiz features an all-star cast including Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Lena Horne, Richard Pryor, Mabel King, Nipsey Russell, Ted Ross and many more. Diana Ross’ Dorothy is a shy and sheltered 24-year old kindergarten teacher living in Harlem, whose journey through the Land of Oz includes show-stopping musical numbers, unforgettable dancing, and extravagant visuals. + CHICAGO Pittsburgh’s own Rob Marshall directed and choreographed this Best Picture Oscar-winning musical set in the roaring 20s. Starring Renée Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere, Queen Latifah and John C. Reilly, Chicago harnesses all-out musical razzle-dazzle to tell the tale of Roxy Hart, a quintessential femme fatale who parlays a murder rap into nation-wide celebrity. Killer songs and pulsing dance numbers pit fame-seeker against fame-seeker in a high voltage musical media circus.
