EaDo Playhouse’s show Sweet Charity lets you be a big spender without dishing out a lot of dough. The musical is set in 1960s New York, where we meet Charity Hope Valentine, a woman who puts the “hopeless” in “hopeless romantic.” The unlucky-in-love starlet bounces from one relationship to the next, each one more tragic than the one before. Executive director Luke Hamilton says the show “poignantly points out that if you don’t change what you’re looking for, you’re going to end up in the same place. It’s a tragically beautiful message that hits home with the show and the audience.” Bob Fosse’s Tony Award-winning choreography is the cherry on top for this night on the town.
