Before Chicago there was Sweet Charity. Charity Hope Valentine who, despite her job as a dancer at the seedy Fan-Dango Ballroom, is an eternal optimist who loves too much. She just happens to be the unluckiest romantic in New York City! The musical Sweet Charity is a warm, touching and humorous look at her trials and tribulations, as she repeatedly gives her heart, and her savings, to the wrong man. Adapted from Nights of Cabiria, a film by Federico Fellini, the musical Sweet Charity includes hits such as “Hey, Big Spender,” “Rhythm of Life,” and “If My Friends Could See Me Now.”
