EaDo Playhouse presents Sweet Charity.
SWEET CHARITY originally premiered on Broadway in 1966, directed and choreographed by the legendary Bob Fosse. Starring his muse, Gwen Verdon, this renowned musical comedy was crafted by a powerhouse team of creators: Composer Cy Coleman, Lyricist Dorothy Fields and Book Writer Neil Simon.
The Playhouse’s imaginative new production sweeps us back to 1960’s New York, where we meet Charity Hope Valentine.
Charity, a dance hall hostess at the Fandango Ballroom, puts the “hopeless” in “hopeless romantic.”
We watch as Charity stumbles her way from guy to guy, each relationship more unlucky than the last. Will she ever get her life together? Will she ever find true love?
This hilarious and heartwarming musical is the sexy cherry on top of an incredible Summer Season at EaDo Playhouse!
With classic songs like “Big Spender,” “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” and “The Rhythm of Life,” an innovative design and ingenious choreography, inspired by Fosse, SWEET CHARITY is sure to delight audiences!
SWEET CHARITY runs August 11 to 27, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 5pm. Tickets are available at EaDoPlayhouse.com and by calling the box office at 832.210.5200. Ample street parking surrounding 2619 McKinney Street is completely free.
