Hey gang! Let’s put on a show! Ambitious Kermit, Miss Piggy and their Muppet friends bring their college musical (“Manhattan Melodies”) to the Big Apple. Getting a producer interested and mounting the show on the Great White Way is not so easy as anticipated. Lots of guest stars (Liza Minnelli, Joan Rivers, Art Carney, Dabney Coleman, James Coco, Gregory Hines, Brooke Shields, Ed Koch, etc.) show up along the way before the troupe’s Broadway dream comes true. Directed by Frank Oz, voiced by Jim Henson, Oz and crew. (1984) 94 MIN. (G) (SONY)
Pre-show entertainment: SOULGA Meditation, Captain Planet
Part of the HBO Bryant Park Film Festival program.
