Neil Simon, the Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright, brought us classics like The Odd Couple, Barefoot in the Park, and, in 1966, Sweet Charity—an adult-themed musical drama about women who make their living in the sex trade. The play opened on Broadway in 1967, earning Bob Fosse a Tony for best choreographer, and this year, Harlem Repertory Theatre brings Sweet Charity to life in its immersive production transforming the Black Box Theatre into The Fandango Ballroom. On select days, you can follow the romantic misadventures of Charity Hope Valentine, Sweet Charity’s dancer heroine whose desperate quest for love and "someplace better than this..." has unexpected consequences. The performance is full of incredible song and dance numbers, and is directed by HRT’s AUDELCO award-winning director and choreographer, Keith Lee Grant, so you know it's going to be good; order a drink, sit back and enjoy the show.

Afterward, discuss the show and satisfy your appetite at El Kallejon, one of East Harlem’s coziest, tastiest, and most inventive Mexican cantinas. Enjoy classic Mexican dishes with an infusion of world flavors for a unique twist—for instance, escargot with mescal and pasilla sauce or mini tostadas featuring grilled baby shark, red cabbage, and jalapenos. The restaurant also has an incredible beverage menu, from homemade sodas to unique cocktails like the titular El Kallejon (tequila, lime, tamarind chili, cascabel marmalade, and pineapple chili candy). Visit during the summer for live music and grilling on the patio.
