Charity Hope Valentine is a naïve and trusting eternal optimist who falls in love too easily. Working as a dance hall hostess at the seedy Fan-Dango ballroom in Times Square, she loves too much and is the unluckiest romantic in New York City. This classic Broadway musical premiered in 1966 and won five Tony Awards. It also ran in the West End as well as having revivals and international productions.
“Sweet Charity” is a tender, poignant and consistently funny look at the adventures, or rather misadventures, in the ways of love encountered by the gullible and guileless Charity Valentine - an unlucky soul who always gives her heart and her earnings to the wrong man. The tuneful score by Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields includes hits such as “Hey, Big Spender,” “Rhythm of Life,” “I’m A Brass Band” and “If My Friends Could See Me Now.” The show features a hilarious book by none other than Neil Simon.

Entertainment TV calls “the hottest ticket in town.” Written by real people with regular jobs, “The Water Coolers”’ hilarious brand of song and sketch comedy celebrates anyone who’s ever been held captive by a help line, pretended to understand an IT guy, or forced to buy a can of old popcorn by a Thin-Mint-crazed Sales Parent. Like a cross between “The Office,” “The Capitol Steps” and “Modern Family,” “The Water Coolers” uses top New York City talent to answer the question “does this stuff happen to anyone else?” So take a break, put down that PDA and come see “The Water Coolers,” the act The Chicago Sun Times says is “Guaranteed to make you laugh.”www.seethewatercoolers.com
