My wife and I saw the Friday and Saturday shows. It was great fun to see the performers live on stage, and I'm so glad they went Avenue Q style and let us see the puppeteers (though sometimes shrouded). The second show was better, with more ad-libbing and responding to the audience.
Matt did a...
That was very cool. I actually liked that you could see hints of the puppeteers- this is live puppetry after all, and the human touch is what sets it apart from, say, animation. I only wish it could have ended with acknowledgement of the puppeteers. In the Disney era, the puppeteers don't get...
And here's my write-up about the whole exhausting, inspiring day!

TMZ is really stupid... but I pretty much knew that already.
I've been nervous about seeing and hearing the new Elmo, but this really makes me feel better about it. Ryan does the voice well and has Elmo doing very Elmo-y things. Put the character into context on the Sesame Street set, and it...
I'm unimpressed so far. Maybe I'll get more excited about this project when it becomes clear what exactly the Doozers are doing, like what the stories will be about. I don't mind an alternate universe reboot kind of thing, as long as there's a point to it.
If it's cool (and it gets played in...
