Nothing brings us back to the angst and struggles of our childhood quite like Charlie Brown and the entire Peanuts bunch. Based on the Charles M. Schulz comic strip Peanuts, You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown follows the story of the Peanuts gang as they explore life’s big questions.
Charlie Brown is joined by his neighborhood friends; Lucy, who is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder; Linus, the blanket-toting best friend; Sally, the perfectionist; Peppermint Patty, the sporty outgoing friend; and Snoopy, the beagle with the rich imagination. As the friends play baseball, football, do homework, and swoon over their crushes, they discuss serious topics such as popularity, loneliness, character, and what real happiness truly is.
You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a 1967 musical comedy with music and lyrics by Clark Gesner. Over the course of its run, it was nominated for several Drama Desk Awards and Tony Awards. Kristin Chenoweth won Best Featured Actress in a Musical in 1999 and Roger Bart also won in that same year for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.
