When and Where: Monday at Heinz Field Club East, North Side.
Let's Misbehave: Roughly 400 party-goers arrived dressed to impress in flapper-style flair. The drinks were flowing (it is the roaring '20s, after all!) and guests were invited to learn a few signature steps out on the dance floor before The Skivvies performed during dinner. Melanie Croc-kard, auction committee chair, was first to put on her dancing shoes. "This is such a fun party, year after year. City Theatre is incredible and misbehavin' is the least we can do to support it," she said. The event raised more than $225,000.
One of a Kind: "City Theatre is the only theater in Pittsburgh doing new works, which is so exciting. I'm really looking forward to 'Smart Blonde' about Judy Holliday," said gala co-chair June Yonas, who had her dress handmade for the event.
Quotable Moment: Patricia Ward Kelly, Gene Kelly's widow, has produced a one-woman show about the screen legend. "I hope that through my show they get to really know Gene. It's a very personal and unique theater experience because there were so many dimensions of him that people rarely saw."
