Bart plays Snoopy in ‘Brown’

Thesp joins Peanuts players Levine, Chenowith, Mathis

NEW YORK — The beagle has landed. A deal is on the table for Roger Bart to play the part of Snoopy in the Broadway revival of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” planned for next season.

Bart previously starred on Broadway alongside F. Murray Abraham and Betty Buckley in last season’s “Triumph of Love” and as Cousin Kevin in the touring production of “The Who’s Tommy.”

“As a kid, I used to take out paper and trace Snoopy, and now, just by performing him, I’m sort of tracing him again. It’s sweetly poetic,” Bart said.

Bart was the singing voice of Hercules in Disney’s “Hercules” and will be featured in the upcoming Michael Mann pic “Man of the People,” about tobacco industry whistle-blower Jeffrey Wigand.

Other “Charlie Brown” cast members inked include Ilana Levine (on Broadway last season in “The Last Night of Ballyhoo”) as Lucy, Kristin Chenoweth (on Broadway in last season’s “Steel Pier”) as Patty and Stanley Wayne Mathis (on Broadway as Bonzai the hyena in Disney’s “The Lion King”) as Schroeder.

Negotiations are ongoing for B.D. Wong to play Linus. The title role remains uncast.

“Charlie Brown” will be helmed by Michael Mayer and produced by Columbia Artist Management Inc., Fox Theatricals, Arthur Whitelaw and Gene Persson.
