Peanuts meets Mean Girls in this parody by Brad Royal. We get a teen Charlie Brown ("CB" here) mourning Snoopy's recent death from rabies, Patty and Marcie as soulless bullies, a perpetually stoned Linus, and Lucy in a padded cell. Schroeder is gay, and the group has turned violently against him. In his grief over Snoop, CB seeks to make up--and then make out--with the outcast pianist, bringing the gang's homophobic rage down on them both. Cheap elements--including extreme, reflexive gay-bashing--stand out awkwardly against echoes of the original strip's smarts and soulfulness. Still, the young, earnest, uneven Epic Theatre Company cast ultimately won me over. --Dan Weissmann
