First Details of The Muppets Take the Bowl released

Next month pull out your tux and plan a trip to the Hollywood Bowl, where you’ll be able to find world famous entertainment like only Jim Henson’s Muppets can provide in their first-ever full-length live show. Partnering with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the Muppets will bring their special brand of antics, musical performances, special guests, and, since this is the Hollywood Bowl, spectacular fireworks.

The “Muppets Take the Bowl” show will run for three nights only. September 8 – 10. Conductor Thomas Wilkins will direct the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra for this once-in-a-lifetime unforgettable event. Many different Muppets are making plans to perform including: Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo, Sam Eagle, PepĂ© 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.

Overflowing with original music, classic Muppet songs, dancing, a singing-diva pig, fan-favorite sketches and parodies, boomerang fish and heaven knows what else, The Muppets Take the Bowl invites audiences of all ages to join the entire Muppet cast in a sensational, inspirational, celebrational journey from extremely humble beginnings to extraordinary Hollywood stardom.

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.

“This will be moi’s greatest performance ever, and I guarantee that all of you who are there at the Hollywood Bowl will rave and brag about it for the rest of your lives. And those who are not there, will have to lie about being there. So, don’t lie, be there and experience moi in person,” said Miss Piggy.

Tickets are still available and The Hollywood Bowl is great for this type of event. Even though it can seat nearly 18,000 guests, it always feels intimate thanks to the large screens they’ve added. I’m pretty sure they still let you bring your own dinner too. Will you make plans to see The Muppets at the Bowl?
