Arguably the best known Musical theatre heroines, Charity Hope Valentine is “a girl who wanted to be loved.”
One of the most famous shows by legendary director/choreographer Bob Fosse, Sweet Charity boasts a laugh-a-minute script by the incomparable Neil Simon set to Cy Coleman’s rhythms and sounds which bring 60’s life in New York to life. From a seedy New York dance hall to the Pompeii Nightclub Charity sings, dances, laughs and cries on her search for her happy ever after.
Featuring much loved classics like Hey, Big Spender and Rhythm of Life among its show-stopping score, Sweet Charity captures spirit of the ‘60s in There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This!
