Live at Mr. Kelly's

The legendary Mister Kelly’s, once called a “supernova in the local and national night life firmament,” illuminated Chicago’s Rush Street, and the entire country, by launching talent like Barbra Streisand, Woody Allen, Bette Midler, and Richard Pryor. Its visionary owners George and Oscar Marienthal smashed color and gender barriers to put fresh, irreverent voices in the spotlight and transform entertainment in the 50s, 60s, and ’70s. Now, with the club long gone, and its star talent reaching its golden years, George’s son David and acclaimed director/screenwriter, Ted Bogosian, go on a quest to collect the memories of the clubs before they are lost.
