YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN

YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN

J Charles Schultz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classical musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.  The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form.  Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. In this revised version, with additional music by Andrew Lippa and by Michael Mayer, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” this musical is sure to bring out the child in everyone.
