I say check out Aunt Ru's Kermie's Girl. She not only has the Muppet Show doing Vegas, but Piggy doing Broadway. You can also check out my latest, Five Ball Cha-Cha; Scooter has two promenient songs in it that I showcased. *shrugs* I thought it was okay, especially when doing a musical number can be hard.In my next chapter of A Nest Divided, it's going to mostly focus on the Muppet gang filming an episode of their show in the theater, and I want to make a musical number the centerpiece of the chapter. Does anyone have any tips for writing in a number without making it seem too wordy or stagy? Or perhaps know of a fic that does a good job of writing in something like that?
Actually, now that I think about it, the first in that series 8 Ball, also had two musical numbers that I featured. I haven't gone through all the fics here, so there might be more that I just don't know of.
As for tips, definitely describing the scene is helpful. I say do more describing of what's going on and less of the song; most of us will post some lyrics and then just post the accompaning song from a YouTube video.
Oh! Newsie's Monsters story has the one scene where Gonzo did his soft shoe routine with song for Camilla. Sorry, that one just came to me. Hope that helps!
