With a book by Neil Simon, music by Cy Coleman and lyrics by Dorothy Fields, Sweet Charity is a funny, poignant and tender look at the misadventures of Charity Hope Valentine, a dance-hall hostess who always gives her heart--and her earnings--to the wrong man.
Headlining this snazzy new production as Charity is Christina Applegate, best known for her hilarious portrayal of Kelly Bundy on ten seasons of the hit Fox series Married...with Children and her Emmy-winning turn on the hit series Friends. Denis O'Hare, who won a Tony Award for the Broadway hit play Take Me Out, will co-star as the lovelorn man who falls for Charity after finding himself trapped with her in a broken-down elevator.
With 14 classic songs including the show-stopping numbers "If My Friends Could See Me Now," "Big Spender" [IMG:L]and "Baby, Dream Your Dream," Sweet Charity is the story of one woman's belief that in the midst of adversity, she will find hope and the strength to know that someday all of her dreams will come true. Been dreaming of a big, splashy revival of this well-loved musical comedy? Well, it looks like your dreams have come true!
