Sweet Charity

‘There’s gotta be something better than this …’  sing Charity (Verity Hunt-Ballard), Nikki (Debora Krizak) and Heléne (Lisa Sontag).
Don’t believe it!

Musical Theatre doesn’t come better than this Sweet Charity, a smashing first-up hit at Sydney’s new home of intimate musical theatre, The Hayes Theatre Company.

Dean Bryant and choreographer Andrew Hallsworth weave musical theatre magic to pare back this classic Broadway musical, losing nothing (maybe it even gains a lttle something) in an intimate space. Their reimagining truly serves the show, with fluid staging facilitated by Owen Phillips’ minimalist design, complemented by Ross Graham’s lighting; a top flight triple threat cast dressed (and in various stages of undress) stunningly and often wittily by Oscar and Tony winner Tim Chappel, backed by all-new jazz inspired scoring from Andrew Worboys’ five-piece band.
A Jazz pianist of note, composer Cy Coleman would have enjoyed the new five-piece arrangement, which still retains a big Broadway sound when required.”

“Parissa … immediately engages by being blessed with a voice that has timbral overlaps with Billie Holiday’s. More significantly she shines the charm of that voice on some exceptional self-penned songs”
