You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown has been nominated for a Tony as Best Revival of a Musical. Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus and Lucy people You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, based on the popular "Peanuts" comic strip drawn by Charles Schultz. Tony-nominated director Michael Mayer leads featured actor nominees Kristen Chenoweth and Roger Bart with Anthony Rapp, B. D. Wong, Ilana Levine, and Stanley Wayne Mathis.
Charlie Brown originally opened Off-Broadway at Theatre 80 St. Marks, on March 7, 1967, and is made up of loosely arranged songs and vignettes -- a slice of the lives of these elementary-school aged characters. The St. Marks production ran 1,597 performances. Songs include "Happiness Is," "Book Report" and "My Blanket and Me." In 1971, the original production transferred to Broadway's John Golden Theatre, where it only lasted 32 performances. The original cast recording of the score was released in 1967 by MGM.
This revival features changes made to the show's book incorporating new strips written since 1967 and altering the original musical's character Patty to Charlie Brown's kid sister, Sally. Two new songs were also added, Sally's "My Philosophy" and Schoeder's "Beethoven Day."
You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical.
