The New Group’s revival of Sweet Charity, set to open Off-Broadway November 20 at The Pershing Square Signature Center, may transfer to Broadway according to the New York Post, which states that co-producer Kevin McCollum has the rights to move the intimate staging to a Broadway house.
The revival of Neil Simon, Cy Coleman, and Dorothy Fields’ Sweet Charity is directed by Leigh Silverman and choreographed by Joshua Bergasse. Two-time Tony winner Sutton Foster stars as Charity Hope Valentine, an unlucky-in-love dance-hall hostess, along with a principal cast made up of Asmeret Ghebremichael (Nickie), Shuler Hensley (Oscar), Emily Padgett (Helene), and Joel Perez (Herman/Vittorio/ Daddy Brubeck). Previews began November 2 for a run scheduled through January 8, 2017, Off-Broadway.
Producers have not confirmed whether a Broadway transfer is in the cards. According to the Post, the only thing standing in the way is Foster’s shooting schedule for her hit TV series Younger.
Tickets for the Off-Broadway engagement are available at TheNewGroup.org.
