Sweet Charity is a musical by Cy Coleman, with lyrics by Dorothy fields and book by Neil Simon. It was famously directed by Bob Fosse, starring his wife and muse Gwen Verdon in 1966. It is based on Frederico Fellini's screen play for Nights of Cabiria. However, where Fellini's black and white Italian film concerns the romantic ups and downs of an ever-hopeful sex worker, in the musical the central character is a dancer for hire at a Times Square dance hall.

The musical premiered on Broadway in 1966, where it was nominated for 9 Tony awards, and also ran in the West End as well as having revivals and international productions.

The musical was adapted for the screen in 1969 with Shirley MacLaine as Charity. Bob Fosse directed and choreographed this film.
