Life ‘Sweet’ at Last

Celebs turn out for 'Charity' event on B'way

“To be dead and then alive — it’s weird,” said “Sweet Charity” thesp Denis O’Hare on Wednesday as the on-off-on tuner finally bowed — just in time to qualify for Tony noms.

At the Guastavino’s party, O’Hare admitted he thought it was over in Boston. “I’d like to say I always had faith. But I didn’t.”

The evening, however, belonged to his trouper co-star, Christina Applegate, who scored the season’s biggest ovation for just showing up onstage.

“Tonight, I stood behind the scrim and started to cry, thinking that this moment almost didn’t happen,” said Applegate, who, in addition to dealing with the show’s hazy future, has spent the past couple of months nursing a bum foot, broken during “Charity’s” Chicago run.

Onstage, her boot covered the foot brace. At the party, the white brace looked chic enough to start a fashion trend. “It doesn’t come off for another four weeks,” the actress disclosed.
