About this show

With book by Neil Simon, music by Cy Coleman and lyrics by Dorothy Fields, and based on an original screenplay by Federico Fellini, Tullio Pinelli and Ennio Plaiano, Sweet Charity is a funny, poignant and tender look at the misadventures of Charity Hope Valentine, played by Christina Applegate, a dance-hall hostess who always gives her heart - and her earnings - to the wrong man. With 14 classic songs including the show-stopping numbers "If My Friends Could See Me Now," "Big Spender" and "Where Am I Going?", this show is the story of one woman's belief that in the midst of adversity, she will find hope and the strength to know that someday all of her dreams will come true.
