Sweet Charity Summary

Meet Charity Hope Valentine. She's a true original, an eternal optimist...and the unluckiest romantic in New York City. Directed by Walter Bobbie (a Tony Award winner for Broadway's runaway hit Chicago) and choreographed by Wayne Cilento (Wicked, Aida), Sweet Charity has a hilarious book by none other than Neil Simon. And the classic score (by Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields) features such hits as "Hey, Big Spender" and "If My Friends Could See Me Now." Swing on by the Fandango ballroom...and let Charity dance her way into your heart!
