Product Description
Christina Applegate stars as Charity Hope Valentine, the unluckiest romantic in New York City, in a dazzling new Broadway revival of this smash hit musical. With a book by Neil Simon and score by Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields, Sweet Charity features such hits as 'Hey, Big Spender' and 'If My Friends Could See Me Now'. DRG. 2005.

The best thing about this CD is the score: Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields's songs have lost none of their incisiveness over the years, and even a lackluster revival such as this one doesn't entirely succeed in dulling their edge. In the title role, Christina Applegate means well and tries hard, which isn't enough to make us forget Gwen Verdon, the powerhouse original Charity. Even "There's Gotta Be Something Better Than This," a showstopping number if there ever was one, shines like a 40-watt bulb when it should be 400. As Charity's paramour Oscar, Denis O'Hare gives a wonderful, multifaceted performance, though of course Oscar doesn't get songs--except for the welcome addition of "A Good Impression." While this production is adequate but no match for the original recording, fans will be delighted by the bonus tracks. Backed by a small ensemble, Coleman sings four 1963 demos, including an intimate, delightful "I'm the Bravest Individual." The composer also pairs with Fields for a live version of "Big Spender" recorded in 1972. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

BWW Reviews: THE DROWSY CHAPERONE at Firehouse Theatre - Broadway World

This isn't your date, or a rude patron behind you, but the narrator of The Drowsy Chaperone (simply known as Man in Chair), inviting you into his living room for a walk down memory lane. With a wild imagination, and perhaps a touch of agoraphobia, Man in Chair dusts off his old records to bring his favorite (fictional) Jazz Age musical to life. Jumping in and out of the action on a whim, Man in Chair, like a friend with juicy gossip, makes sure to share all the important details, while adding his humorous commentary along the way. For three weekends only, The Firehouse Theatre presents The Drowsy Chaperone , Broadway's 2006 surprise-hit musical, which received an astounding number of Tony Award nominations: 13 (the most nominations that season). Although it lacks any major commercial appeal, theatre fans are eager to praise the show for its bold humor, dazzling production numbers and (perhaps selfishly), its array of distinctive character roles. To pick a favorite character in this production is impossible, but Sarah Dickerson's Kitty puts up a good fight. With her impeccable timing and appropriately abrasive voice, Ms. Dickerson milks every single moment she is given. Partnering with a pair of gangsters (the razor-sharp duo of Tim Brawner and Clint Gilbert as The Tall Brothers), Ms. Dickerson creates uproarious laughter in the Act One finale, Toledo Surprise. As the narrator of the show, Lon Barrera's Man in Chair is also remarkably effective. Although Mr. Barrera seemed somewhat uncomfortable with his lines on opening night (nerves, perhaps), his energy is simply infectious. Breaking the "fourth wall," Mr. Barrera holds the audience in the palm of his hand, unapologetically offering a wink or a comment to bring them in on the joke. Contradicting the otherwise sweet-as-a-button storyline, Elisa James as The Drowsy Chaperone herself offers a deadpan, indifferent performance with frequent one-liners and priceless gags. The additional 17 performers in Firehouse Theatre's production provide great energy and an extraordinary amount of talent to this clean production. The impeccable costume design by Victor Newman Brockwel and costume assistant, Michelle Wentroble, deserves. Source: www.broadwayworld.com

  • Broadway Yearbook 2000-2001 : A Relevant and Irreverent Record

    Oxford University Press. 2002. ISBN: 9780195348156,019534815X. 336 pages.

    Broadway Yearbook 2000-2001 is a relevant and irreverent record of the theatrical year. A vivid album of the year on the Great White Way, Broadway Yearbook gives readers front-row seats for the phenomenon of The Producers and the rest of the season's hits and misses. Steven Suskin's acclaimed new theatre annual delivers a vibrant, candid, and thoughtful account of every show to hit the boards: exciting musicals such as The Full Monty and the revival of 42nd Street; intriguing new plays like Proof and The Tale of the Allergist's Wife; and fascinating failures, including Jane Eyre and the beleaguered Seussical. Broadway Yearbook tells us what the shows were actually like. It is an interpretive record, featuring not only dates and names but also the stories behind the statistics. Each entry is accompanied by credits and cast lists, scorecards summarizing overall critical reception for each show, a summary of each show's financial performance, and copies of the illustrative program covers and title pages. Appendices provide a roundup of the season's major awards, memorable performances of the year, obituaries, long run leaders, shows still running from prior seasons, scheduled shows that never reached Broadway, and a comprehensive index. Steven Suskin has provided a unique and detailed record of the season's memorable moments and high points (and low points as well). Written from an insider's perspective, the book is knowledgeable, intriguing, provocative, and entertaining. Broadway Yearbook brings the shows of the 2000-2001 season back for an encore.
