"Sweet Charity" Review by Larry LaVercombe

THEATER REVIEW -- Sweet Charity opened at Southwest High School last weekend -- and it is the bomb. Southwest Dance Teacher Colleen Callahan brings the Bob Fosse choreographic style front-and-center, and the rest of the team brings it home. Yet again -- Southwest High School demonstrates its ongoing reputation as perhaps the best performing arts school in the state of Minnesota, if not the entire country. Add this to the unusual collaboration between Fosse and Neil Simon – and you have a perfect vehicle for the talented Southwest faculty and students.
