Review On You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown


Rob Stevens

Registered Critic


As in the comic strip, this show is stolen by Snoopy, played with exuberant elan by Alexander Mashikian. Whether howling at the moon, fighting aerial battles with The Red Baron or hunting for rabbits, Mashikian knows how to let the dogs out. His paean to “Suppertime” is the evening’s showstopper.
