STAGE TUBE: On This Day 2/4- YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN
Welcome to BWW's ON THIS DAY Series celebrating theatrical birthdays, openings and special events that took place on this day in theatre history!
Today in 1999, You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown opened at the Ambassador Theatre, where it ran for 149 performances. A 1967 musical comedy with music and lyrics by Clark Gesner, the show is based on the characters created by cartoonist Charles M. Schulz in his comic strip Peanuts. The 1999 revival featured new dialogue by Michael Mayer, who also directed, and additional songs and orchestration written by Andrew Lippa; choreography was by Jerry Mitchell. The cast featured Anthony Rapp, Kristin Chenoweth, and Roger Bart.
In celebration of this day, we bring you Chenoweth's performance of 'My New Philosophy' as performed at the 1999 Tony Awards. Click below to check it out!
