The recently canceled "Sweet Charity" will open on Broadway this spring with the original headliner Christina Applegate

Christina Applegate's "Sweet Charity" which recently been canceled due to the poor ticket sales, will reopen on Broadway this spring, two weeks late than its original schedule. The show producer Barry Weissler said Tuesday that he had re-hired Walter Bobbie's production, taken the sets out of storage, and prepared the show for an April 12 first preview and a May 4 opening.

The reopened show noted as one of only three musicals eligible for the Best Musical Revival Tony Award will perform its original headliner, Christina Applegate, who had gotten the OK from her doctors to return in mid-April to the role of dance hall hostess Charity Hope Valentine.
