Sweet Charity Back On Track

LATEST: CHRISTINA APPLEGATE has successfully begged theatre bosses to put the problem-plagued revival of SWEET CHARITY on again - just days after bosses decided to pull the plug on it.

The show, which received tepid reviews and was called off after Applegate broke her foot, will now open in New York on 4 May (05), two weeks later than originally planned.

Producer BARRY WEISSLER says, "Christina came to me and made the most deeply felt emotional plea. She has given up all her movies for the year, plus her home and husband are on the West Coast. This is what she has wanted since she was a little girl and I just couldn't take it away from her."

Weissler says he has received assurances from Applegate's doctors that she will be able to perform in the musical, which is a dance-heavy show.

Sweet Charity will now begin preview performances on 11 April (05) at the Manhattan's Al Hirschfeld Theatre, with Applegate's standby, CHARLOTTE D'AMBOISE, playing the role until 16 April (05).

Applegate, who broke her right foot during a performance in Chicago on 11 March (05), will take over the role on 18 April (04).
