Music, Lyrics and Book by: Clark Gesner
Broadway revival directed by: Michael Mayer
Additional material by: Andrew Lippa
Based on the comic strip by Charles Schultz

The best way to describe this show is as an amalgamation of the comic strips - sort of a typical "day in the life" of Charlie Brown. To see what I mean, take a look at the synopsis.

To get an even better idea of how the show works, browse through the complete libretto.

"Peanuts", the comic strip about Charlie Brown and his friends, is the mostly widely-read syndicated comic strip in history. Read a little more about the comic.

Turning the popular comic into a musical may not seem like the most obvious idea - find out how the musical developed.

Though there are others out there, the only recording I own of this show is the cast recording of the recent Broadway revival - take a look at my review of the CD, or listen to a clip from the title song.

I haven't stopped kicking myself for years now that I didn't go see the show on Broadway in 1999. But I did still get to see the show anyway, when it played in Toronto in the fall of 2000.
Read more about my thoughts on the show.

With a cast of only six characters, and the fact that the audience is already familiar with the characters, the actors have a really difficult challenge! Read a bit more about some of my favourite performers that have been in this show. Or, download a wallpaper with your favourite character on it!
