Cllr Kieran McCarthy will direct, fund and produce Sweet Charity, the musical at the Firkin Crane from Thursday 4 June to Sunday 7 June. Sweet Charity tells the story of dance hall hostess Charity Hope Valentine, an eternal optimist who is forever unlucky in love. Her trusting nature and naiveté makes her prey for a succession of opportunistic men. The razor-sharp script lifts the veil on the exquisite agony of living on the under-side of life. This is a comedy with an edge. With music direction by David O’Sullivan, choreography by Aileen Coffey, production management by Yvonne Coughlan the new Cork City Musical Society promises to entertain you with a highly-theatrical, fast-paced and entertaining show, featuring such well-known musical numbers as “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “Big Spender” and “Rhythm of Life”. Tickets available at the www.firkincrane.ie or 021 4507487.
