Members of the press were treated on Wednesday to a glimpse at the upcoming Sweet Charity revival starring Christina Applegate as Charity, and Tony-winner Denis O'Hare as Oscar. The show will begin previews on Monday, April 4, 2005 and open Thursday April 21, 2005 at the Al Hirschfeld Theater. Directed by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie, and choreographed by Tony Award winner Wayne Cliento, Sweet Charity will play three pre-Broadway engagements in Minneapolis, Chicago and Boston, prior to its April arrival in New York.

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 Flaiano, Sweet Charity is a funny, poignant and tender look at the misadventures of Charity Hope Velentine, a dance-hall hostess who also gives her heart - and her earnings - to the wrong man.
