Musical Theater Program in association with the College of Arts & Sciences, School of Drama, School of Music and Dance Program
Book by Neil Simon; Lyrics by Dorothy Fields; Music by Cy Coleman
Directed by Wilson Mendieta
For its inaugural production, the UW Musical Theater program brings to the stage Neil Simon’s tender, poignant, and funny look at the love adventures—or rather misadventures—of the gullible and guileless Charity Hope Valentine. Full of dance, eye-popping designs, and musical numbers like Big Spender and If My Friends Could See Me Now, Sweet Charity is the ideal vehicle to demonstrate the collaborative spirit on which our Musical Theater program was founded.
