A May 31 presentation was held to test the concept of putting The Muppets on stage, Tony Award-winning Disney Theatrical Productions president and producer Thomas Schumacher told Variety. Over 85 Muppets were used in the "elaborate" presentation that included Kermit the Frog's signature song, "Rainbow Connection."
No official plans are in place for a full production, but Schumacher said he was "intrigued" by the 15-minute presentation which tested the technical demands of presenting The Muppets with a live audience of invited guests at the New Amsterdam Theatre. Pre-existing Muppets material was used.
