‘Charlie Brown’ play dates, times and ticket information


Play:  You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown

Book:  Clark Gesner

Music & Lyrics:  Clark Gesner & Andrew Lippa

Genre:  Musical; Comedy

Synopsis: 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. Subjects ranging from loneliness, jealousy, inferiority and self-doubt to fantasy, sibling rivalry and the need for nurturing and acceptance emerge from the lyrics that issue from the mouths of these six-year-olds and their dog. Portrayed by older actors, Charlie Brown and cohorts certainly have much to say about the secret concerns and unbridled joys of their nascent, questioning minds.

Historical Note: This charming piece of work has a long history. Its original run was off Broadway at Theater 80 in the East Village beginning in 1967, where it settled in for a smashing run of 1697 performances.
