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.

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...)
