Big Broadway Stars Light Up the Civic Center in July & August

Laughs written by Neil Simon, the inspiration of Bob Fosse and classic hits like "Big Spender"--what's not to love about SWEET CHARITY? Lyric's brand new production of the beloved musical will run July 10-14 at Civic Center Music Hall and will star Oklahoma-grown Broadway actress Milena Govich (Charity Hope Valentine) and many more. You'll spend the whole evening laughing!

Then, don't miss the rousing musical Irving Berlin's CALL ME MADAM, July 24-28, starring Broadway darling Beth Leavel (Mrs. Sally Adams). This golden age treasure is inspired by Oklahoma City's own international socialite and ambassador Perle Mesta!

To top off the summer season, Lyric presents the Broadway legend herself, Chita Rivera, in Chita Rivera: MY BROADWAY, August 7-11. This intimate night of music featuring Chita's best Broadway hits will leave you wanting more!
