Sweet Charity opened on Broadway in the 1965-66 season and ran for 608 performances with a brilliant score by Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields, and astounding choreography by Bob Fosse who won a Tony for his work.If you've got an extra five minutes, take a look at Fosse's work from the movie production of Sweet Charity which starred Shirley McLaine:
Incredible stuff! I just love the retro-ness of it all! I think I was on Laugh-In in a former life.
The shows exceptional score and choreography made it a shoe-in for a revival and producers did not disappoint. The first revival came in 1986 starring Debbie Allen, and the second in 2005 starring Christina Applegate. The show currently enjoys a robust touring schedule around the country.
