Dancers Over 40 Fourth Annual Legacy Awards and Holiday Dinner Set for 12/10
At this year's dinner and holiday party, Dancers Over 40 honors the some of our outstanding – and long-time -- members: Advisory Board Member Carol Lawrence (West Side Story, Subways are for Sleeping, New Faces of 1952), Board Member Lee Roy Reams (Sweet Charity, Applause, 42nd Street, La Cage aux Folles, The Producers), Advisory Board Member Larry Fuller (Evita, Sweeney Todd, On the Twentieth Century, Merrily we Roll Along - choreographer), former Board Member George Marcy (West Side Story, Damn Yankees, Carnival, Man of La Mancha) and Norma Doggett-Bezwick (performed in Jack Cole's first Broadway musical, Magdalena, the movie Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and Bells are Ringing, on Broadway). Every one of our members know them, the theater and dance community here and around the country seek them out. Each has a very passionate following. And their fans are legion.
Broadway veteran Harvey Evans hosts this Holiday Party and Dinner, along with performer, blogger and "Hello, Dolly!" expert Richard Skipper. Speakers thus far include Leslie Uggams and Donna McKechnie, along with a few more surprise guests.
These dancer/performer/entertainers and all-round quadruple threats have not only left a mark on Broadway television and film, they have contributed mightily to Dancers Over 40 over the years to make it a stronger and more inclusive organization.
DO40 will be taping this event to preserve the History, the Legacy and Lives of these extraordinary human beings, and donating the video to the Jerome Robbins Dance Collection at the Lincoln Center Library for the Performing Arts.
Please join DO40 for this very important, and emotionally uplifting Holiday event.
