Sweet Charity, Josie Rourke’s farewell production at the Donmar Warehouse which stars Anne-Marie Duff as Charity and Arthur Darvill as Oscar, appears to have charmed the majority of our Mates, with a few reservations here and there. The musical continues until 8 June 2019.
Also in the cast are: Lizzy Connolly, Lauren Drew, Jo Eaton-Kent, Will Haswell, Charlotte Jaconelli, Stephen Kennedy, Debbie Kurup, Martin Marquez, Ryan Reid, Amy Ellen Richardson, Danielle Steers and Shaq Taylor.
Multiple guest actors continue to play the role of Daddy Brubeck including Shaq Taylor, Le Gateau Chocolat, Beverley Knight and Clive Rowe with further casting to be announced.
Sweet Charity is choreographed by the world-renowned Wayne McGregor, who reunites with Rourke after working on her debut film Mary Queen of Scots. Rourke returns to the music of Cy Coleman who wrote the score for her Olivier Award-winning production of City of Angels. The book is by Neil Simon and lyrics by Dorothy Fields.
