Arts Educational School presents Sweet Charity
The musical will play from 14 November to 18 November at the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Theatre in Chiswick
Sweet Charity is based on the 1957 Italian film called Nights of Cabiria and premiered on Broadway in 1966. Music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Dorothy Fields and book by Neil Simon. The original Broadway show was choreographed by Bob Fosse and nominated for nine Tony Awards, winning the Tony for Best Choreography. The musical students of Art Educational School will present this show at the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Theatre.
Sweet Charity explores the turbulent love life of Charity Hope Valentine, a hopelessly romantic but comically unfortunate dance hall hostess in New York City. With a tuneful, groovy, mid-1960s score by Cy Coleman, sparkling lyrics by Dorothy Fields, and a hilarious book by Neil Simon, Sweet Charity captures all the energy, humour, and heartbreak of Life in the Big City for an unfortunate but irrepressible optimist.
