Timed to the 50th Anniversary of the classic musical Sweet Charity, New Group Theater’s production stars two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster (Younger, Violet, Anything Goes) as Charity Hope Valentine, the sassy, diehard romantic dancehall hostess whose naivety and overeager embrace of every man she meets keeps getting her in hot water. Performed in an intimate setting with original choreography by Joshua Bergasse (On the Town), this production of Sweet Charity will be given a fresh, modern perspective by Tony-nominated director Leigh Silverman (Violet, Well). Extended due to popular demand: Nov 2 – Dec 30th! For more info and to buy tickets click HERE.
Sweet Charity is based on an original screenplay by Federico Fellini, Tullio Pinelli, Ennio Plaiani. Originally produced for the Broadway stage in 1966 by Fryer, Carr and Harris. Conceived, Staged and Choreographed by Bob Fosse with Music by Cy Coleman and Lyrics by Dorothy Fields. The original production was nominated for 9 Tony Awards.

Ella Fitzgerald and the great guitar virtuoso Joe Pass recorded four albums together toward the end of Fitzgerald’s career and appear together on the album of this week’s title track. The studio orchestra Nelson Riddle assembled for this 1982 set also included such superb musicians as Tommy Tedesco (guitar), Shelly Manne (drums), Al Aarons (trumpet) and Jimmy Rowles (piano) and won Ella the 1984 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Performance. It was one of three Grammys she won for her work with Riddle.
The tune of course is the classic by Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh, the pair of Great American Songbook writers whose marvelous, witty, and sophisticated output also included Witchcraft, I’ve Got Your Number, I Walk A Little Faster, and Hey Look Me Over just to name a few.
Come the day your mine
I’m gonna teach you to fly
We’ve only tasted the wine
We’re gonna drain that cup dry!

This week’s stunner of a top tune was the third single from Rosanne Cash‘s trailblazing 1981 album Seven Year Ache and her third #1 country hit. The single spent a total of 11 weeks on the chart.
In Rolling Stone‘s 50 Country Albums Every Rock Fan Should Own, Cash “conceived her niche as post-pub-rock and borderline New Wave, at least in the sense of Tom Petty and Steve Forbert, whose material she interprets”. The musicians and singers on this album are a who’s who of American roots music and include: Tony Brown, Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Booker T. Jones, Albert Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Mickey Raphael, Hank DeVito, and Emory Gordy Jr. Check out this amazing clip from 1982!
