The Muppets are heading for Broadway, according to new industry reports.
Disney bosses are exploring the idea of launching a stage version of The Muppet Show following a top secret showcase, which was held at the New Amsterdam Theatre in New York on 31 May (13).
Reports suggest over 85 Muppets were used in the experimental project, which was held to determine if the show would be possible.
The Muppet Show ran on TV from 1976 to 1981, and the beloved puppets also tasted film success in The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper, The Muppets Take Manhattan, The Muppet Christmas Carol, Muppet Treasure Island and Muppets From Space.
Disney bosses brought the puppet troupe back in vogue in 2011 with the movie The Muppets. A sequel is currently in the works.
