S w e e t C h arity Sweet Charity opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London, some 12 years ago. ‘ Irresistible’ — ‘a triumph’ — ‘sweet’ — ‘pretty’ and ‘very funny’ were some of the terms used by the critics. Since that night in O ctober 1967, the Show has run successfully on stage, film and television, gaining further plaudits. The story is a simple one, and stems from an Oscar-winning Italian film The Nights o f Cabiria, directed by Frederico Fellini. In the Musical version, the heroine is Charity Hope Valentine, a New York dance-hall hostess. Against the dance-hall background, Charity’s hopes and dreams are poignant at times. Her love affairs seem to flounder, but one goes along with her in the hope that ‘This time it will all turn out right’. Charity, Helene and Nickie decide ‘There’s Gotta be something better than this’ and leave the Fandango Ballroom. Charity celebrates by going to a cultural lecture in the YMCA, gets stranded in a lift and there meets a new love — Oscar. O f the many enticing songs, a few especially memorable for their gaiety and excitement are The Rhythm o f Life, the title song and Big Spender. This is the sixth brilliantly successful musical for Neil Simon, in at least one of which he has also collaborated with Cy Coleman. Dorothy Fields com pletes a team of experienced and dedicated writers. The original American production of SWEET CHARITY was presented by Fryer, Carr and Harris, currently represented on Broadway by the record-breaking MAME. G. MacN
