Sweet Charity - 2005 - Broadway


Based on the screenplay Nights of Cabiria by Federico Fellini, Tullio Pinelli and Ennio Flaiano

Debuting on Broadway in 1966, Sweet Charity was a collaboration between some of Broadway's most spectacular talents. Cy Coleman's music effortlessly captures the rhythms and sounds, and Dorothy Fields lyrics the vernacular and fascination of the underground scene, in iconic musical numbers such as Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now, and There's Gotta Be Something Better Than This. Neil Simon's razor-sharp script lifts the veil on the exquisite agony of living on the under-side of life. The legendary Bob Fosse directed and choreographed the original production, and was largely responsible for the musical's distinctive and lasting identity.


Running Time: Two hours and 30 minutes with one intermission

Al Hirschfeld Theatre (Broadway)

(New York, NY)
302 W. 45th St.

Backtrack a little to the night of June 1st (or just click here if you prefer) and remember how I described the scene at the York Theatre's Mufti production of Minnie's Boys when the curtain was held because 21 people were stuck in the theatre's elevator. Well, wouldn't you know, somebody happened to have a video camera with him and recorded the scene from the inside. I'm just a little disappointed that none of these musical theatre fans stuck in an elevator thought of singing, 'I'm The Bravest Individual.'
