TIME

An average day in the life of Charlie Brown


The Colony's production of You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown was re-imagined by its creative team and helped make a star of Kristin Chenoweth when it was revised on Broadway in 1999. Broadway director Michael Mayer visited with Charles M. Schulz to get his blessing on the revision. Mr. Schulz gave Mayer access to his cartoons and the result was thorough. Seventeen of the original show’s scenes have been deleted and 21 new ones have been added. Composer Andrew Lippa revised seven of the original 14 songs with new vocal and dance arrangements and has written two new songs as well as reconceiving the beloved opening number.


This production was made possible by the kindness and generosity of

Frans Klinkenberg, Angstrom Stage Lighting, Bardwell's on the Boulevard, Center Trust, Michael Hall, Doug Haverty, Art + Soul Designs, David Holmes, Phil Moore, Occidental College Dept. of Theatre, Salvador Palacios, California Lighting & Power, Mi Piace, John Schumacher, George Sebastian, Chris Thomas, Jack Vandermark, Wadler Data Systems, Kelly Witherall, and special thanks to SEARS, Media City Center.
