Let's hear it for the boy!
That's the boy, Max Henry Leavitt Tamarkin, being a STAR as Charlie Brown in You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown. The theater company, run by the incredibly talented Chase Leyner (sister of Mark Leyner), requires auditions or invitations, and it has a great stage, reasonable prices, and cupcakes (!) at intermission. It was a packed house, front row center seats and I think the most amazing moment was towards the end when Max had his big show-stopper of a number, singing as he came onto the stage, the last one out to be applauded. (His dream was to finally get to be the last one applauded.) He looked almost overwhelmed with joy and astonishment, which of course, made me cry.
