In the play Youre A Good Man Charlie Brown you can see your favorite two-dimensional stars from the Sunday paper breathed into vibrant life All your favorites Linus and Lucy Snoopy and Schroder Charlie himself and his little sister Sally parade about the stage reenacting the most popular skits from the hit strip Peanuts which until recently was syndicated in thousands of newspapers on six continents in forty-eight languages Unfortunately with the passing of Charles Shultz the real-life Brown who wrote and hand-drew every panel of every strip the series is no longer with us But Youre A Good Man Charlie Brown keeps the Peanuts spirit very much alive The set was done very simplistically as it should be and in a touch of genius the entire wardrobe and even Snoopys doghouse The Slopewidth Camel looked hand-drawn and freshly colored Everything just leaps right off the Saturday Post The songs were very kid-friendly and almost and little too sing-alongish for the older audience but with catchy tunes and the specially coordinated vocals I often found myself humming despite the obvious annoyance to those around me The overall plot isnt very cohesive and upon closer inspection is word-for-word quoting Shultzs work Fans of the series certainly wont mind but the casual reader-turned-audience member may find themselves occasionally lost and a little angry about the general lack of resolution or development To that end this isnt so much a play in an actual sense of the word as much as several comical running-gags tied together by some sparse musical numbers This is remedied by spectacular acting courtesy of the MSU drama-department Every nuance and quirk of the comics is masterfully captured and recreated on stage and yet the cast didnt seem to suffer from the intimidation that usually comes with portraying such famous and well-established characters Youre A Good Man Charlie Brown is a play I definitely wouldnt recommend to anyone
