You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown Information
About the Show:
You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a stage musical based on the classic comic strip Peanuts by Charles Schultz. It follows six beloved characters in a typical day in their elementary school lives: Charlie Brown, Linus van Pelt, Lucy van Pelt, Snoopy, Schroeder, and Sally Brown (Patty in the original 1967 off-Broadway version). Some of the most well-known aspects of the comic are included, such as Lucy's psychiatrist's booth, Linus' love for his blanket, Charlie Brown's obsession over the Little Red-Haired Girl, and Snoopy's imaginary hunt for the Red Baron.
You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown premiered off-Broadway on March 7, 1967 and enjoyed a run of 1,597 performances, through February 14, 1971. A short Broadway run followed in June, 1971. In 1999, a Broadway revival opened starring Anthony Rapp (Rent), Roger Bart (Young Frankenstein), and Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked); Bart and Chenoweth both won Tonys for their performances. Some memorable songs from the show include "Snoopy," "My New Philosophy," and "Happiness." Order You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown tickets today and experience this classic comic strip brought to life onstage.
The happy and hopeful Charlie Brown is surrounded by his friends, who all give their opinion of him, agreeing that he is a "good man." He doesn't know exactly what they mean, but he decides to find out. One day at lunch, he is obsesses over the Little Red-Haired Girl who he has a crush on, but he can't bring himself to sit with her. Elsewhere, Lucy tells Schroeder how much she loves him and asks him what he thinks about marriage. He hears her, but chooses to ignore the issue and play his piano instead.
At his doghouse, Snoopy, feeling content, begins to daydream, fantasizing that he is a ferocious wild animal. But when he wakes up, he is thankful for his peaceful life. Meanwhile, Linus takes flack for still clinging to his security blanket, but he can't give it up; he even fantasizes about a world where everyone loves their blankets. Later, Lucy tells Linus she wants to be a queen. When he tells her she can't, she threatens to slug him.
Charlie Brown appears and, to his amazement, he finally gets his kite to fly before it is yet again devoured by the wicked Kite-Eating Tree. After bumbling a Valentine's Day card for Violet, he visits Lucy in her "psychiatrist's booth." She tells him that he is just unique, then demands a nickel. Later, Schroeder tries to get everyone excited about "Beethoven Day" and Charlie Brown, Lucy, Schroeder, and Linus try to focus on writing their book reports on Peter Rabbit.
While Snoopy imagines that he is a pilot searching for the Red Baron, Sally voices her displeasure on getting a D in school and decides to make herself feel better by getting new philosophies. Later, Charlie Brown leads the baseball team to a disappointing loss and writes about it to his pen pal. Looking for a distraction, he joins Schroeder's glee club, where the children can't concentrate on the song because of their petty arguments.
Later, Lucy tells Linus all about the workings of nature, but Charlie Brown interjects when she starts feeding him misinformation. That night, Snoopy eagerly awaits his suppertime until Charlie Brown finally feeds him, ending his dramatics. At the end of the day, Charlie Brown is still unsure of what it means to be a "good man," but after finding a pencil that had been nibbled on by the Little Red-Haired Girl (discovering that she's human), he realizes that true happiness in life is about the little things. And he concludes that being a "good man" is about making the most of what life gives you. Grab some You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown tickets today to join the Peanuts gang on this exciting day!
