Just in time for the 4th of July weekend, audiences will laugh along as the show captures the poignant moments in the lives of the Peanuts gang. Valentine's Day, the trials of baseball season, Lucy as psychiatrist, Schroeder on piano, Snoopy and his adventures – they’re all here in a single vivid day that veers from wild optimism to utter despair, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening.
One of the most popular musicals in history, a major Broadway revival of “Charlie Brown” was undertaken in 1999 by composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa and director Michael Mayer. With the blessing of comic strip creator Charles Schulz himself, seventeen original scenes were deleted and 21 new ones were added; seven of the original 14 songs were revised and two new ones were added. The result is a brand new experience for a whole new generation of theater goers.
Tickets: $20 for adults, $15 for children 16 and under.
