Sweet Charity
by The Harlequin

Nov. 26 - Nov. 27

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 Hope Valentine.  Charity sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through romances with the “animal magnetism” hero, the “ultra-chic continental” hero, and the “impossible-to believe-but-he’s-better than nothing” type hero. Her world is the all too real world of Times Square, and the people who pass through her world are a deceptively charming a group.

This is a bright and sophisticated show in every sense. Neil Simon has a particular talent for looking at the truly amusing side of life. Wonderful musical numbers include Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now, Too Many Tomorrows, There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This, I’m a Brass Band and Baby, Dream Your Dream. ..and fabulous dancing too!
