Sunday June 11, 2017
3:30pm – Essential Fosse Pre-show
4:00pm - Sweet Charity
Tickets - $8 Advance / $10 At the Door
There's nothing better than this! Shirley MacLaine, Chita Riveira, Paula Kelly, Sammy Davis Junior and RICARDO MONTALBAN in Bob Fosse's Sweet Charity! "Hey Big Spender", "The Rhythm of Life", "If My Friends Could See Me Now", Cy Coleman's songs are the some of the best in any show.
Charity Hope Valentine (Shirley MacLaine) always tries to look on the bright side of life, despite working in a rundown dance hall and contending with a seemingly endless run of bad dates. Determined to find love, Charity falls for suave actor Vittorio Vidal (Ricardo Montalban), but their romance is all too brief. However, when Charity finds herself stuck in an elevator with the reserved Oscar Lindquist (John McMartin), it turns out that she may have finally met her match.
Based on Fellini's wonderful "Nights of Cabiria" Sweet Charity is Fosse's big glamourous love letter to the sixties that drips with style, wit and belief in true love against all odds or logic.
