You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown
A musical comedy based on Charles M. Schulz’s classic comic strip Peanuts, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown follows the title’s lovable blockhead through an endearing day in the life. Struck by a youthful existential crisis, Charlie ponders his character and general existence, even after his cohorts warble the praising title song to him at the play’s opening. To make matters worse, he’s fallen for the enigmatic Little Red-Haired Girl, whom he can never muster up the courage to approach. This unrequited love leaves him feeling deflated and seeking the off-color psychiatric guidance of bossy know-it-all Lucy.
Despite Charlie’s misfortunes, a collection of whimsical tunes, such as “The Book Report” and “Glee Club Rehearsal” uplift audience spirits, and the final song, “Happiness,” teaches him to appreciate the little things in life and accept himself. The musical is also peppered with comic-specific details, from Snoopy’s Red Baron daydreams to Schroeder’s virtuosic piano-playing and Linus’s trusty blanket. These charming touches, along with the musical’s celebration of mankind, bring Schulz’s timeless characters to life more vividly than storing a Snoopy parade balloon in your living room.
