CBS has officially announced that Stephen Colbert will be taking the reins from David Letterman in 2015 to host The Late Show, which would put The Colbert Report to rest. Check out tweets confirming the news below after the jump.
One of the student theater groups put on two sister productions these past two weekends. Last weekend was You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown and this weekend is Dog Sees God.
You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a family friendly musical that basically takes the comics and puts them on stage. Dog Sees God is CB meets high school.
It was a real eye opener. As someone said, it takes any main issue high schoolers have and puts it in a week duration on stage. There is issues of sexuality, drug use, sex, underage drinking, bullying, abuse, and death. I can’t go into details because that would ruin the surprise.
But there are some things that I feel like I need to say or I’ll burst. Pigpen becomes a germaphobe as compared to in the original where a cloud of dust followed him. CB plays football for the school when before he was never allowed to kick the ball by Lucy. Peppermint Patty goes by Trisha because her name is Patricia. Linus is referred to as Van because his last name is Van Pelt. The pen pal… well the pen pal is someone special to the whole production.
But I do have to say that is play is no for everyone. It’s not a for people who want a happy ending. It’s not for play who can’t stand sex and drug use on stage.
I would recommend it to everyone but I have to the warning:
Don’t see this play if you dislike what is said above. Don’t see this play if you want the image of the peanuts to be what you remembered as a kid.
