Sweet Charity

Off-Broadway
Comedy
SYNOPSIS: Based on the Fellini film Nights of Cabiria, the musical tells the story of Charity Hope Valentine, a taxi dancer with a heart of gold but a will of tin foil. Though she dreams of meeting the right man and settling down, she keeps lavishing her affections on losers. Her luck starts to change when she meets a suave Italian movie star, but things really start to look rosy when she runs into a nebbishy but sweet guy in a night-school elevator. Could this finally be her Prince (more or less) Charming? Score includes “If They Could See Me Now” and “Big Spender. ”
