Sweet Charity at The Talisman Theatre, Kenilworth from 2 - 7 October 2023
One of the great Tony Award winning American musicals – not to be missed.
The book is by Neil Simon, music by Cy Coleman and lyrics by Dorothy Fields. Sweet Charity is based on an original screenplay by Federico Fellini, Tullio Pinelli and Ennio Flaiano.
Director at the Talisman Theatre is Stephen Duckham.
Hapless but unflappable, Charity Hope Valentine desperately seeks love in 1966 New York City. In this exuberant, goofy, hilarious musical comedy, Charity tries again and again to find her dream and make something of herself.
The big Broadway score contains the hit songs Big Spender, The Rhythm of Life, If My Friends Could See Me Now and There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This. The script has one laugh line after another by one of the masters of American comedy. A must see of the season.
