Dancers Over 40 (DO40) presented its second-ever song and dance concert entitled "DO40 CARES: It's Not Where You Start…" to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Project Achieve/Columbia University and the NYC HIV Vaccine Trials Network on Monday March 12, 2012.
Carol Lawrence hosted, with Chita Rivera bringing her merry murderesses from the original Fosse CHICAGO of 1975, including Michon Peacock, Cheryl Clark, Candy Brown and Candace Tovar. Featured guest and current Broadway gypsy Rachelle Rak performed "I Gotcha" from FOSSE.
Members of DO40 were heavily represented, as both dancers and choreographers. Performing members included George Marcy (original cast member of DAMN YANKEES and WEST SIDE STORY) and DO40 Board Secretary Mary Lou Barber, as well as Performance Artist Claire Porter and a special Cell Block Tango by Stella D'oro, the "Queen Mum" of HIV Vaccine for Project Achieve, one the recipients of the evening's fundraising efforts.
