REVIEW: Happiness is…….You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown (Revisited)

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown (Revisited), lands a knockout punch at The Novato Theater Company with a fresh approach to the classic comic strip by Charles Schulz. This performance warmed the heart of my nostalgic inner child while welcoming the newer generations of “Peanuts” lovers with charming vignettes by Charlie, Sally, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder and Snoopy. The dynamic and talented performers harmonize seamlessly in song and on stage with a live music accompaniment and vibrant set. Snoopy’s “Suppertime” performance is the best I’ve ever seen and worth the price of admission alone. This is a full length comedy musical with a run time of 2 hours with a 15 minute intermission. I recommend the 2pm Sunday show for children under 8. But all the children I sat with were full engaged the entire time with the 8pm start. Treat your child (and your inner child) to this energetic, colorful and full of laughs performance perfect for the whole family.

I’ve am a lifelong Peanuts fan so I couldn’t wait to see the play ‘You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown’ at The Novato Theater Company with my mom. It’s the perfect homage to the beloved comic strip and amplified my love for it even more. I love crabby Lucy, music prodigy Schroeder, perfectionist Sally, witty blanket-toting Linus, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown. But the actor playing Snoopy was exceptional canine companion loved the world over. His rendition of the Red Barron scene was no doubt my favorite. We sat right up front and center and I absolutely loved it. There were little murals of the Peanuts characters up and down the walls, and there was a fun, happy atmosphere about the place. I love the costumes....and Beethoven is nice too.
