EaDo Playhouse presents Sweet Charity
Sweet Charity originally premiered on Broadway in 1966, directed and choreographed by the legendary Bob Fosse. Starring his muse, Gwen Verdon, this renowned musical comedy was crafted by a powerhouse team of creators: Composer Cy Coleman, Lyricist Dorothy Fields and Book Writer Neil Simon.
The Playhouse’s imaginative new production sweeps us back to 1960s New York, where we meet Charity Hope Valentine. Charity, a dance hall hostess at the Fandango Ballroom, puts the “hopeless” in “hopeless romantic.” We watch as Charity stumbles her way from guy to guy, each relationship more unlucky than the last. Will she ever get her life together? Will she ever find true love?
