This sounds like it's going to be amazing. It's great that the Muppets are being used in a way that showcases what they do best.

I'm just finding it hard to be more enthused due to the fact that I won't be able to see any of it, as many others won't. They won't televise it, unless they do some type of TV special that compresses al three performances into one.

But I'm happy for all the people who will be a able to go. It's bound to be three incredibly funny nights.

Cool! I remember reading in Brian Jay Jones's book about how Henson Associates was a little envious of Sid & Marty Krofft having a successful (debatable) live show at the Hollywood Bowl back in the 70s - now it's time for the Muppets to shine!

I would complain and say how come this can't be in NYC, but in fairness, we get a lot of stuff here including the amazing Carnegie Hall concert from a few years back lol

Well, you guys in NYC can't have all the fun. :stick_out_tongue:
That is true. As much as I'd love to attend this Hollywood Bowl event, I am happy folks on the West Coast will get some Muppet exposure. We're spoiled here in NYC with all the museums, Henson still having offices here, Sesame Street being filmed here and making appearances on the locally filmed shows, so I think it's cool that there are other events going on for fans to attend.

speaking of which, has anyone here been to the Labyrinth exhibit at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Georgia? THAT is something I want to see!
