Liz Lark Brown: "A Christmas Together 1979" (John Denver and The Muppets). I spent a while trying to think of my favorite Christmas song and, instead, realized that Christmas is not Christmas without hearing the album based on the John Denver and The Muppets – "A Christmas Together" TV special — the whole thing. The Muppets are where I got my first ideas of "show business" and the backstage goings-on as well as witty wordplay and goofiness all rolled together. It is childhood; it is nostalgia; it is also very close to what Joe puts together with The Family… although Fozzie never ran blue.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
