Los Angeles, CA (August 16, 2017) – The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association and The Muppets today revealed the first details about The Muppets’ first-ever full-length live show. The Muppets Take the Bowl is more than just a concert…more than just a performance…more than just a play on an iconic movie title…it’s The Muppets as never seen before – live and in-person (ok, more like in-frog, in-bear, in-pig…etc.), with full orchestra, on stage at the iconic Hollywood Bowl.
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!
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.
The curtain will rise for their first show on Friday, September 8, at 8:00 p.m., followed by encore performances on Saturday, September 9, at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, September 10, at 7:30 p.m. Miss Piggy’s announcement of her Hollywood Bowl debut can be viewed here.
