Good grief! It's 'Charlie Brown'
The doctor (aka Lucy) is "In" and so is the insecure Charlie Brown, the blanket-carrying Linus and of course, Snoopy, in Stray Dog Theatre's production of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." The beloved Charles Shultz comic-strip characters sing, dance and opine their way through childhood traumas in this 1967 musical.
But, in the end, Charlie Brown realizes that being good just means doing your best. His newfound insight prompts everyone to express what makes them happy, and to tell him, "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown."
