    Seems like Frank Oz is starting to make more public appearances lately: he was at the Museum of Moving Image in Astoria, NY last October, and now he's coming to Brooklyn on May 16th (Jim's death anniversary) for a "Night of Oz". Two screenings back to back of his films Little Shop of Horrors, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. He will be doing a Q&A for Little Shop according to the website. Tix are cheap, I would LOVE to go myself, but unfortunately have a conflict with that date, but here is the info for those interested: http://bam.org/view.aspx?pid=4227

    If anyone goes, please post here how it was!

    I'm excited. I guess it isn't news for us west coasters until it happens and we can read about what he says. I hope someone asks him about the reported remake in development.

    Do all of these wonderful events HAVE to be exclusively in New York?

    NYC and California the places to be for big events. :/

    Great to hear someone from here is going! Definitely let us know how it goes! I really wish I could be there this time around, but "real life" priorities first....I'm very surprised I haven't read any mention of this on all the other "go to" Muppet sites besides this one...as Kermit would says "What the hey?"

    I'm really excited about it. There's a chance I can possibly live tweet the Q&A session! If you want to follow that day I'll use the hashtag #FrankOz and/or #LittleShop on twitter.

    This might be our first chance to hear what he thought of new movie in its final form.

    Does anyone want to shoot out some questions and I'll try to get them answered at the Q&A? I can't guarantee I'll get a word in but I can try!

    That would be awesome! Unfortunately I won't be home that night (hence why I can't make the Oz event) but that would be great for other people to follow and a write up after the event would be even cooler. I need to vicariously live through others for this event. lol

    Alright lovely people. I'll be doing a live tweet of the Q&A session TONIGHT and I'll try to do a summary write up after. You can follow the live tweet by either a) following the hashtag #LSOH or b) following me on twitter @KristinGdula.The film starts at 6:50 so keep a look out for tweets after the movie is over.

    Does anyone have questions they want to ask Frank Oz tonight? I'll see if I can get a few in!

    How was the event, Kristin? I heard Frank was very accessible after the screening hanging out in the lobby...figures when I saw him at Museum of Moving Image in October he had a gaggle of museum staff around him, so I had to kinda worm my way in when he had a moment on his own lol Was the Q&A good? Were any interesting questions asked?
