On the Town Celebrates Gene Kelly's 103rd Birthday

Watch two of the show’s talented dancers re-create one of Kelly’s iconic numbers.

How could the Broadway production of On the Town not celebrate the 103rd birthday of the legendary Gene Kelly? Kelly famously starred as Gabey in the film version of the musical, and among the iconic numbers he got to perform was "Main Street." Well, to toast the occasion, two On the Town ensemble members, Cory Lingner and Eloise Kropp (who will next be seen in the upcoming Broadway production of Dames at Sea), got together to re-create "Main Street" in all its glory. While Kelly's birthday is actually August 23, you can watch the video — which is introduced by star Tony Yazbeck — below.
