Synopsis

Sweet Charity is a tender, poignant and consistently funny look at the adventures or rather the misadventures, in the ways of love encountered by the gullible and guileless lady known as Charity Agnes Valentine, the “lady of the evening” who always gives her heart, and her earrings, to the wrong man.

Sweet Charity is a musical in every sense of the word–Cy Coleman has captured the rhythms and sounds and Dorothy Fields the vernacular and fun of present day New York. It’s a comedy in every sense of the word also. Neil Simon has a particular talent for looking at the truly amusing side of life. It’s a dancing show, too, with great opportunity for use of dramatic movement.
