Hey, big spenders, you may be able to spend a little time with two-time Tony winner Sutton Foster on Broadway! According to the New York Post, Sweet Charity could transfer to the Main Stem's Circle in the Square Theatre in fall 2017. The New Group’s revival is currently in previews at The Pershing Square Signature Center and is scheduled to officially open on November 20.
Directed by Leigh Silverman and choreographed by Joshua Bergasse, the cast includes Foster as Charity Hope Valentine, along with Yesenia Ayala, Darius Barnes, James Brown III, Asmeret Ghebremichael, Shuler Hensley, Sasha Hutchings, Donald Jones, Jr., Nikka Graff Lanzarone, Emily Padgett and Joel Perez.
Cy Coleman, Dorothy Fields and Neil Simon’s musical follows the romantic ups and downs of Charity, an ingenuous dance hall performer in Times Square. The tuner premiered on Broadway in 1966 and was last revived in New York in 2005.
