You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown (2016 Off-Broadway Cast Recording) [CD]
Come spend a couple of days in the lives of Charlie Brown and his pint-sized philosopher friends-from bright, uncertain morning to starlit, hopeful evening-and all of the lonely brown-bag lunches, kite-flying failures, book reports, glee club rehearsals, and suppertimes in between. Audiences of all ages will learn that "Happiness is" the simple joys of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
This exciting new production is based on a concert that was presented at Feinstein's/54 Below by Van Dean of Broadway Records and Jennifer Ashley Tepper, and combines the simplicity of the original 1967 Off-Broadway version with additions from the 1999 Broadway revival, with the added bonus of starring young Broadway vets, aged 9-14: Joshua Colley (Les Misérables), Gregory Diaz (School of Rock), Aidan Gemme (Finding Neverland), Mavis Simpson-Ernst (Evita), Jeremy T. Villas (Kinky Boots), Graydon Peter Yosowitz (The Odyssey) and Tony honoree and Grammy nominee Milly Shapiro (Matilda).
The hit musical You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown with book, music and lyrics by Clark Gesner and additional material by Andrew Lippa and Michael Mayer is directed by York’s Associate Artistic Director Michael Unger, with music direction by Eric Svejcar and choreography by Jennifer Paulson-Lee.
