About the show
Charity Hope Valentine, a young New Yorker, is the eternal optimist. While working at the seedy Fan-Dango ballroom, as a dance hall hostess, she is often taken advantage of and continually experiences bad relationships. She has few prospects in life but always dreams that there is something better in store for her. Tired of her disreputable, difficult existence, Charity decides to fulfil her desires and goes to an employment agency to find a respectable job. Although her efforts lead only to humiliation, she seems to have met a decent fellow in Oscar. Trying to hide her true profession, she lies to him and tells him that she works in a bank. Soon, Oscar asks Charity to marry him. Unfortunately, Oscar discovers Charity's real profession and backs out of the marriage. Nevertheless, Charity continues to remain hopeful that good things will happen in her life.
This 1966 musical, created by Cy Coleman (music), Dorothy Fields (lyrics) and book by Neil Simon, is based on Federico Fellini's screenplay for Nights of Cabiria. It was originally directed and choreographed by the 1966 Tony Award winner Bob Fosse. Some of the well known musical numbers in the show include: Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now, There's Gotta Be Something Better Than This, and The Rhythm Of Life. It also includes memorable dance routines such as Rich Man's Frug, made famous by the 1969 movie version starring Shirley McLaine.
