CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS WAS AMAZING!
Fantastic from start to finish! The jazz music throughout was the best and Snoopy was awesome! Can't wait to see it again next year!
Ann Latour from Ottawa, Ontario
The show was amazing. Very entertaining. Just like the cartoon with a little extra. Great laughs. Hope they come back every year. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT
Such a delight! True to the peanuts strip and characters, great music and performances. The actors keep in mind the characters are children, and come across as such, with the combination of wonder and wisdom that comes from the young. The music, since it's introduction in the 60's, has come to define Christmas for a generation. Snoopy is a hoot, as in the strip, a dog who thinks and acts as if he is human. My favorite part comes when they retell the Christmas story, a reminder of what we celebrate every year. Thank you all.

TERRIFIC MUSIC SOLID SHOW, BUT AWFUL CASTING
PROs: The set design was GORGEOUS! And the music was simply terrific! Shane Aaserud (bass) was absolutely flawless. Josh Roberts is someone to keep an eye on, too, as his drumming was perfect and his acting (as Pigpen) was great. But it was Kevin Dort, as Linus, whole stole the show. What a wonderful performance! Melissa Boatright had a great understated part as Patty. All the costumes were nicely done with the exception of the odd white pants of Snoopy. The pace of the play was quite good. It was entertaining and consistently funny throughout. CONs: All other casting and acting was pretty bad. Charlie Brown is a short, pudgy, loveable bald kid. Jack Flatley - the actor playing Charlie - is a tall, strapping man with a head full of hair. Brianna Barnes, as Lucy, was irritating and unfunny. The Snoopy character was truly odd and very off-putting, though sporadically funny. Nico DiPrimio was an anonymous dancer who added nothing of value. And why was there a Hanukah song in this?

CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS AT THE BALBOA
This production was entertaining but we were very disappointed with both snoopy and Charlie Brown. Every character had great hair costumes except Charlie Brown who had hair. This was a huge disconnect from our entire perception of the peanuts world. Snoopy was a strange performance too. The end was a Christmas carol party we didn’t really enjoy. We found ourselves looking forward to the end so we could leave.

WORST MUSICAL/PLAY WE HAVE EVER SEEN!
I really can’t believe that the Fox Theater would allow such a terrible musical in their house. I have come to expect great shows when going to the Fox, this was so disappointing. The sets and costumes were very cheaply made (I can’t believe that snoopy wasn’t in a full headed costume) The first half was literally such a snooze, that many of the adults fell asleep.
