Muppets Stage Show Under Discussion

New Show
Posted By

It's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights because there might just be a Muppets stage show on the cards.

According to Variety, Disney Theatrical Productions is exploring the possibility of a live stage show starring Jim Henson’s felt creations. 

A fifteen minute presentation directed by Alex Timbers (pictured) featured 85 different Muppets and a selection of sets. It was given a warm reception suggesting the potential project could evolve into a fully-fledged production. 

Alex Timbers’ Broadway credits include Peter and the Starcatcher which bagged five Tony Awards and the Tony-nominated Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.

Shows like The Lion King, Mary Poppins and The Little Mermaid prove how popular Disney big-screen hits can be live on stage. 

There’s no telling whether the concept really will turn into a theatrical extravaganza but given the Muppets’ pre-existing musical repertoire including Kermit’s The Rainbow Connection and the Cookie Monster’s C Is For Cookie, it seems a fitting choice for the next big musical.
