Disclaimer: Some of you may have no idea what I am talking about, but I just had to express my opinion! Lol please feel free to comment anyway. --------------------------------------------------- Last night, Sesame Street Live introduced it's "latest, newest edition" to it's 2009-10 touring season, 1-2-3 Imagine! with Elmo & Friends. Don't be fooled, this show has toured many other times before; begining in 1996 and a revived version in 2002. This was also the VERY FIRST Sesame Street show I saw when I was a child, so ultimately it has a special place in my heart. This is also the A-list show to the 30th anniversary tour. I really want to see the show (it will come this way in around 2 years) because I would like to see what modifications they made to it. Like, I've noticed they have added Abby Cadabby (obviously), but I'm curious to see whether they: dropped Barkley dropped Prairie Dawn gave Roxy Marie a non-speaking understudy role/or kept her speaking gave Grover a speaking role or if he remained an understudy added Telly, who wasn't in the original tours dropped the EW segment they added in the 02' shows Yeah, this tour would be a prime example of how much SS has changed over these last years. After all, you can't expect these kiddies to actually know who Roxy Marie is. However, I would be sad if they did drop Barkley & Prairie, even though Prairie had no lines! On the contrary, I'd love it if the gave Grover a speaking part and added Telly into the show (having no Telly really seemed strange since he plays a big part in the storylines). Pictures: Pic #1 Pic #2 I'm rather unimpressed with the set, since VEE Corporation has done A LOT better with set designs in the past. This looks like a combination of the Elmo Makes Music set & the 2002 1-2-3 Imagine stage. The 1996 one was pure gold(not literally). I was hoping they would have went for that one, since it would have been a throwback to the past. It's exciting to see where this show goes, and I'll be on the lookout for more details.
