The Show

Charity Hope Valentine always tries to look on the bright side of life, despite working in a rundown dance hall and contending with a seemingly endless run of bad dates who take her heart and her earnings. Determined to find love, Charity falls for suave actor Vittorio Vidal, but their romance is all too brief. However, when Charity finds herself stuck in an elevator with the reserved Oscar Lindquist, it turns out that she may have finally met her match. This vibrant shows features such memorable songs as Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now, and I’m a Brass Band.
