BWW Reviews: SMT's SWEET CHARITY Fails to Engage With Its StoryBWW Reviews: SMT's SWEET CHARITY Fails to Engage With Its Story
by Jay Irwin - Feb 22, 2015

Cy Coleman, Dorothy Fields and Neil Simon's "Sweet Charity", currently playing at Seattle Musical Theatre, is not a perfect musical. There's plenty that it has going for it but it's loaded with plenty of extraneous things as well. The story is fairly depressing, the book is too wordy and there are some songs that just plain don't need to be there. So in order to get it to engage it has to be done just right. Well, unfortunately I still haven't seen a production that was there. (more...)
