WE THINK YOU'RE JUST SENSATIONAL, DAME - ANGELA! to be Presented at the Actors' Temple Theatre

Dancers over 40 will present a very special salute to Dame Angela Lansbury, Monday, May 15th at 8pm at the Actors' Temple Theatre in NYC - the highlight of their Spring season. The evening will be hosted and have panels moderated by Kurt Peterson (Dear World) and Ron Young (Mame).

DO40 is known for its iconic panels and performances, and this will follow the same winning formula, featuring cast members and associates from Lansbury's ground-breaking musicals Mame, Dear World, Gypsy, Sweeney Todd and her last musical appearance in A Little Night Music. Panelists include John Sheridan Beecher, Anthony Marciona and Richard Sabellico (Gypsy), Sarah Rice (Sweeney Todd), Karen Murphy (A Little Night Music), Pamela Hall and Jane Coleman (Dear World) Ken Kantor (Mame revival) and performances by Jesse Luttrell, Sarah Rice, Kurt Peterson and Karen Murphy.

Lots of video clips and notes from cast members and DO40 members unable to attend - Carolyn Kirsch and Mary Zahn (Dear World), choreographer Larry Fuller (Sweeney Todd) and Mame dance captain Diana Baffa Brill. Also attending and offering remembrances of Dame Angela’s career are long-time friends Rex Reed and Sondra Lee (Hotel  Paradiso), Broadway publicist Josh Ellis (The King and revival), personal assistant Clark Bason, along with special guest Charles Kirsch (Backstage Babble) — and more TBA! 

DO40 felt it necessary and an important event to produce as they videotape each show to donate to the Jerome Robbins Dance Collection at the Lincoln Center Library for the Performing Arts. They also documented dance legends Marge Champion, Gemze de Lappe, Iva Withers, Norma Doggett Bezwick, Jane Powell, Ann Reinking, Harvey Evans, Tony Stevens and two of theirr board members who passed away this year, Richard Korthaze and Lawrence Merritt (Dear World). This is an integral part of their mission: Our History, Our Legacy, Our Lives.
