Sweet Charity

“In one of the musical performances of the year, she is a tornado of vulnerability, hope and resilience.” – The Times.

“All pivots around Kaisa Hammarlund’s Charity. In her dazzling characterisation, we see not naivety, which is unconscious, but hope – the card she and her friends hold against the stacked deck of economic injustice.” – The Guardian

“As played by the fabulous Kaisa Hammarlund, she’s a one-woman orchestra of overwhelming feeling and organic movement that rings utterly true. Hammarlund takes an impressive career step forward playing this broken but forever resilient character” – The Stage

“Kaisa Hammarlund is an absolute joy as the ever-optimistic yet utterly defenceless Charity. It is a real star-making turn, enhanced by pitch-perfect characterisation and the constant wave of energy and emotion that drivers her performance. – The Artsshelf

“Hammarlund sings and dances beautifully around the circular space with grace and wild abandon in equal measure, as she captures the essence of Charity and the hearts of the audience.” – The Reviews Hub

“Kaisa Hammarlund gives a star-making performance, pulling off that tricky combination of being likeable yet infuriating, sassy – predatorily sexual even – yet romantically naive. The audience is rooting for her from the get-go and Hammarlund rewards its emotional investment with an open, believable performance that never overplays the sympathy card or overdoes her gaucheness.” – Musical Theatre Review

“Hammarlund, is utterly mesmorising and provides an outstanding performance. The standing ovation that she received at the end of the evening was richly deserved. She plays the role with vulnerability, excitement and glamour so much so, that she has the entire audience loving her from the start.” – Canal-Street.co.uk

“The diminutive Kaisa Hammarlund packs a punch as Charity. Commanding the stage, she holds our gaze and clutches at our hearts. Comedic, graceful and free – Hammarlund’s Charity is a complete tour de force.” – My Theatre mates.com

“Kaisa Hammarlund approaches the role of Charity with the perfect balance of intense vulnerability and heightened optimism. Hammarlund’s stage presence is utterly commanding as she portrays her gritty emotions so naturally.” -SincerelyAmy.com
