Lyrics by Dorothy Fields
This Tony winning musical is a tender, poignant and consistently funny look at the adventures, or rather the misadventures, in the ways of love encountered by the gullible and guileless lady Charity Hope Valentine. Charity is a dance hostess who always gives her heart and dreams to the wrong men and sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through her romances in the world of Times Square. From her cynical trio of girlfriends at the dance hall, to the phony evangelist, the Coney Island "fun people," and the YMHA "self-improvers," every character has a particular talent for looking at the truly amusing side of life. Musical numbers include Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now and There's Gotta Be Something Better Than This.
