Charles Schulz's beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner's classic 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 the "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, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained, but a fresh perspective is revealed with funny dialogue and catchy playfulness through song. Whether you're keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find Happiness, "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" is a crowd-pleasing classic.
