UPDATES: (On to the original Post #1 of this thread Hello guys, Well late last night I got a call my friend in NYC and he told me that he had gotten word that there was some type of audition today for an Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas Musical that may come to Broadway or at least a staged version of the show. I don't know when, or where, or why but it would be done with puppets and that i think the Jim Henson company would be doing it. That's all i know! nothing really other then the idea of it. My friend was in shock as much as I. Please take with a grain of salt because i can't confirm anything but i was told it wasn't a secret. I haven't seen any news about it on-line unless i missed something? Who knows? It would be cool idea, as i love Emmet Otter! So many questions come to mind! would it work? I don't know if it would take off in the way like Ave Q. I'm sure it would have to be written longer and maybe need more songs, maybe more from the Nightmare Band. What about Kermit being it? Probably not. I wonder if Paul Williams would be involved? It would most likely be new puppeteers to be doing it. All these things are more are flying around my head! But if it's true i would hope it would lead to a full version copy of the original to be released on dvd! The songs would be AMAZING sung live, i'd want to sing right along! Well, "We're closer now then EVER before!"
