Flashback Friday: Gwen Verdon Is a "Brass Band" in This Sweet Charity Hit

With the classic musical celebrating its latest opening night this weekend, go back in time to the original.

The classic Broadway musical Sweet Charity celebrates its latest opening night on Sunday, this time as an off-Broadway production starring Sutton Foster. The two-time Tony winner isn't the only iconic star to take on the show's title role; in the past, Charity Hope Valentine has been played by the likes of Christina Applegate, Debbie Allen, and, of course, Gwen Verdon. Today, we flash back to Verdon herself, performing the rousing production number "I'm a Brass Band" on The Ed Sullivan Show.
