You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown – See seven of Broadway’s youngest stars in this all-new York Theatre Company production that brings America’s favorite comic strip characters to life on stage, far better than seeing them on TV. This classic musical based on the timeless Peanuts comics by Charles M. Schulz, transports Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Sally, Lucy and Schroeder from the page to the stage. The cast includes child performers who’ve appeared in Elf: The Musical, Kinky Boots, Matilda, Finding Neverland and more. Fans of the comic will be delighted by appearances of the Kite-Eating Tree, the Little Red-Haired Girl, Lucy’s psychiatry booth and Snoopy’s battles with the Red Baron. Clark Gesner’s whimsical score features simple but catchy tunes like “Suppertime,” “Happiness” and the title song.
