Charlotte Sweet In Concert
February 27, 2018
The toast of Off-Broadway in the early 1980’s, Charlotte Sweet spotlights Charlotte, a girl with one of the highest & most beautiful soprano voices in the world. Because of her father’s debts, she is forced to leave her Liverpool sweetheart, Ludlow Ladd, and join Barnaby Bugaboo’s Circus of Voices: a troupe of freak voices including low-voiced Katinka Bugaboo, fast-voiced Harry Host, bubble-voiced Cecily Macintosh, and Skitzy Scofield (with dual personalities & voices). These quirky characters and more will come to life once again for a one-night-only concert at Feinstein’s/54 Below.
With a tuneful score by Gerald Jay Markoe (Another Time, Ludlow Ladd) sung by an all-star cast, and a witty libretto by Michael Colby (The Algonquin Kid, Tales of Tinseltown, Ludlow Ladd), Charlotte Sweet is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
Charlotte Sweet – In Concert is presented by the team behind the popular Second Act Series, Steven Carl McCasland and James Horan, who brought Shelter (starring Jon Cryer), Onward Victoria, The Fix, Henry, Sweet Henry, Charlie and Algernon, 70, Girls, 70, Nick & Nora, Eating Raoul ,and more to New York’s hottest supper club.
