Like a phoenix rising from its ashes, Reprise 2.0 reboots the popular showcase for classic Broadway musicals with the dance-drenched Sweet Charity. The series closed after financial difficulties several years ago, but original founder Marcia Seligson has returned to the helm, announcing a new season with three shows and attracting Tony Award–winning choreographer-director Kathleen Marshall to stage the opener. Having staged last summer's Mamma Mia at the Hollywood Bowl, Marshall knows how to maneuver a full onstage orchestra, professional performers and minimal sets (don't expect helicopters to fly in) that put the focus on the book by Neil Simon, music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Dorothy Field and, yes, the dancing, choreographed by Marshall.
