About This Show

Mr. Wonderful focuses on nightclub entertainer Charlie Welch, especially his personal and show business struggles. The source of those struggles? Being black in a “white world.”

This 1956 musical was written to showcase the talents of Sammy Davis Jr. and Chita Rivera. The Musicals Tonight production is the show’s first revival.
