Who Should The Muppets Play On Broadway?

Polls   Who Should The Muppets Play On Broadway?
"The Muppets TV Show" premiered on ABC Sept. 22. In honor of the return of Kermit, Miss Piggy and friends, we thought it would be fun to dreamcast the Muppets in different roles on Broadway. Playbill.com turned to Facebook and Twitter to ask its readers which roles they'd like to see the Muppets star in on Broadway...then we made those dreams a (photo) reality!

Gonzo the Great as The Emcee in Cabaret:

Gonzo and his lovely girlfriend, Camilla the Chicken, are performers through and through, much like the Emcee and the Kit Kat Club girls in Cabaret. Their rendition of "Two Ladies" or "Two Chickens" would leave audiences in stitches. 



Animal as Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch:

Animal, much like Hedwig, is a true rock star. His performance of "Wig in a Box" might need some subtitles, but he would still blow the roof off nightly. 



Miss Piggy as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard:

Miss Piggy, star of stage and screen and diva extraordinaire, would deliver an incredible "With One Look"...although Piggy could never fade into obscurity.



Kermit the Frog as Sweeney Todd in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street:

Brandon Boring: Sweeney Frog: The Demon Barber of Sesame Street

Kermit, who is usually seen as silly and sweet, would have to dig deep to find enough darkness inside to portray the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Audiences who saw Kermit and Miss Piggy as the murderous duo would surely be in for a bloody good time.



Janice as Carole King in Beautiful

Alec Carroll: I would pay to see Janice the Muppet play Carole King in Beautiful!

Janice, the lead guitar player of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, has an intense musical background just like Carole King. Her rendition of "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" would surely be showstopping. 



Statler and Waldorf as Daisy and Violet Hilton in Side Show:

David Culliton: Statler and Waldorf as Daisy and Violet Hilton in Side Show. You never see one without the other!

Statler and Waldorf, the Muppets' resident curmudgeons, are never seen without each other...much like Daisy and Violet, the conjoined twin sisters in Side Show.
