Clara Young Voices 'Alice' in East Coast Premiere of MY LIFE AS A ZUCCHINI
by BWW News Desk - Feb 8, 2017

'Zucchini' may sound like a weird name, but after the accidental death of his mother, the nickname is all the nine-year-old has left of her. The kids at his new group home seem to understand and, though hesitant at first, Zucchini soon finds himself part of their close-knit, makeshift family. So upon the arrival of the winsome Camille, he is quick to offer his own warm welcome. But when Camille's greedy aunt tries to take her away, Zucchini and his newfound friends must find a way to stay together. With its beautifully expressive stop-motion style, the Academy Award nominated My Life as a Zucchini tackles sometimes heavy subject matter with a light touch, conveying the children's perseverance through precarious circumstances through the matter-of-fact lens of childhood. In English (more...)

BWW 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 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...)
