Jarrod Fairclough – In just a few weeks The Muppets will be taking The Hollywood Bowl in an exciting live show. And with these details released today, it looks like it’s gonna be HUGE! Disney have released an official press release, with just a glimpse of what sketches will be performed, and who will be setting off the fireworks at the end (Hint: It’s exactly who you think it is). There’s even a great little Statler and Waldorf video to go with it! Take a look!
Fans will join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo, Sam Eagle, Pepé the King Prawn, beloved hecklers Statler and Waldorf, and some Muppets who have not been seen since their appearances on The Muppet Show over 35 years ago, along with conductor Thomas Wilkins, the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and special celebrity guests, for this once-in-a-lifetime, unforgettable event!
Highlights of the show include the fabulous Miss Piggy in a show-stopping musical performance; Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem, with legendary drummer Animal rocking the Bowl; debuts of all-new original chapters of Pigs in Space, Veterinarian’s Hospital and Muppet Labs; and many more extraordinary surprises, including a spectacular fireworks finale, kicked-off by Crazy Harry.
There you have it! It looks like it’ll be essentially The Muppet Show live on stage, and I can’t wait to see which characters return after being gone for 35 years (fingers crossed it’s Hugga Wugga!). You can get your tickets hereget your tickets here! I’m super bummed I’ll miss this, but our own Rachel Herrick will be on the scene for us.
