Hey, big spender …

Charity Hope Valentine is a hopelessly romantic taxi dancer at the Fandango Ballroom in New York City. Naively duped by a boyfriend who steals her purse, she sets out on a course to find the good in life. When she meets Oscar, she thinks her luck has changed. Or has it?

Sweet Charity is an American musical theatre classic with characters, songs and Fosse-style choreography that define the genre. Charity may be looking for love in all the wrong places, but she leaves audiences feeling as she does, “hopefully … every after.”
