BWW Review: Peanuts Gang Still Charms in Rooftop Productions' YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWNBWW Review: Peanuts Gang Still Charms in Rooftop Productions' YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN
by Jeffrey Walker - May 7, 2017

The Rooftop Productions effort does well by the Gesner and Schulz creation. Director Ted Ballard keeps things simple, just as Schulz presented his characters in pen and ink. Coupled with identifiably perfect costumes by Mandy Ken, and cartoon inspired, primary-colored set pieces designed by Dale Walsh, Ballard's cast is able to bring to life the wit and wisdom of the Peanuts gang.

CK Productions' latest, Tony nominee You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown is a really cute production. Based on the characters created by Charles M. Schulz in his iconic comic strip Peanuts, this fun musical, created by Clark Gesner, was actually originally done in 1967. This incarnation, however, is a replication of the 1999 revival. (more...)

BWW Review: YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN at Mile Square TheatreBWW Review: YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN at Mile Square Theatre
by Adam Cohen - Feb 6, 2017

Mary Catherine Burke, director of Mile Square Theatre's production of 'You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown' has a stated preference for comedy with bite. In this she successfully mines Charles Shultz' Peanuts comic strip for all the inherent anxiety and wit. Her team - including the cast - create a production with bark (sorry) that captures Shultz' philosophical musings and flights of fanciful imagination. With strong bright Sunday comic, Saturday morning cartoon candy colored lighting (Elaine Wong) and a wisely kid perspective skewing set (Jen Price Fick) and musical director (Terri Gorgone) at the keys, the intrepid, peppy cast of six sings and dances their way into your hearts. They are a wily charming bunch who radiate atomic warm into a smiling audience. (more...)

BWW Album Review: Happiness Is...YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWNBWW Album Review: Happiness Is...YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN
by Remy Holzer - Dec 6, 2016

Whether or not you are familiar with Clark Gesner's musical YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN, you are bound to recognize Track 21 of the York Theatre Company 2016 Off-Broadway Cast Recording. The theme 'Linus and Lucy,' written by Vince Guaraldi, is a familiar tune to all who have seen the well-known animated specials featuring the Peanuts kids. There is something oddly soothing about this gentle, understated theme, with its rolling feeling of continuity paired with plinking notes of whimsy, that has become so closely associated with Charles M. Schulz's legacy of 17,897 comic strips. The YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN band played 'Linus and Lucy' as walking-out music after the show, prompting much of the audience to stay and hear it through to the end. (more...)
