Based on Charles Schulz’s “Charlie Brown” comic strips, this show, which helped make a star of Kristin Chenoweth when it was revised on Broadway in 1999, is bright, fun, and adorable. As we are taken through an “average day in the life of Charlie Brown.” we see glimpses of each of the characters- the old favorites: Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Sally, Linus, and Schroeder to name a few. An average day in the life of Charlie Brown really is just that; a day made up of little moments picked from all the days of Charlie Brown, from Valentine’s Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, all mixed up with the lives of his friends, (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day, from bright, uncertain morning to hopeful, starlit evening.
You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown is presented by arrangement with TAMS-WITMARK MUSIC LIBRARY, INC.
