Theatre in the Park INDOORS presents SWEET CHARITY this October!
Whether she’s falling in love, or in a lake, Charity Hope Valentine is the underdog we all love rooting for; she’s a little lost, she’s hopeful, but while she can never quite get her big break on the stage or in love, Theatre in the Park audiences will love falling in love with SWEET CHARITY.
Inspired by Federico Fellini’s Nights of Cabiria, SWEET CHARITY explores the turbulent love life of Charity Hope Valentine, a hopelessly romantic but comically unfortunate dance hall hostess in New York City. With a tuneful, groovy, mid-1960s score by Cy Coleman, sparkling lyrics by Dorothy Fields, and a hilarious book by Neil Simon, SWEET CHARITY captures all the energy, humor, and heartbreak of Life in the Big City for an unfortunate but irrepressible optimist.
Book by Neil Simon Music by Cy Coleman Lyrics by Dorothy Fields Based on an original screenplay by Federico Fellini, Tullio Pinelli, Ennio Plaiano Produced for the Broadway stage by Fryer, Carr and Harris Originally Conceived, Staged and Choreographed by Bob Fosse Directed by Kipp Simmons
Sweet Charity runs approximately 2.5 hours with one 15 minute intermission.
