    My mom looking through the newspaper and found a ticket order for some SS 40 Year event. She ordered tickets and she sent me an email saying it'll have some of the puppeteers, cast members and Micheal Davis, the author of "Street Gang". Has anyone else heard of this event?

    This is what she sent me:

    January 30, 2009 • 7:00 p.m.
    “Sesame Street at 40” will be a night of celebration and discovery about a children’s TV show that reshaped the world. This once-in-a-lifetime event, crafted for an adult audience, features Frank Oz (Bert, Grover, and Cookie Monster), Kevin Clash (Elmo), Caroll Spinney (Big Bird and Oscar), Sonia Manzano (Maria), Bob McGrath (Bob), Marty Robinson (Telly Monster, Snuffy), Fran Brill (Zoe and Prairie Dawn), David Rudman (Baby Bear), and composer/writer Tony Geiss. The group will assemble as a memorial tribute to New Jersey’s own Richard Hunt, the irrepressible and life-affirming wit behind a score of characters from “Sesame Street” and “The Muppet Show.” Michael Davis, author of the soon-to-be-published Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street, will be the evening’s moderator. This matchless event will illustrate how an incredible ca st of artists has been welcoming kids of all ages to the Sesame Street neighborhood for forty years.

    A Google search brings up that this event will be held at William Paterson University in Wayne, NJ. Tickets are $45 a person for non-university students. This is certainly a once-in-a-lifetime oppurtunity to see all these great people in person and I'll certainly try my best to be there!

    Got my tix! I missed an opportunity seeing Frank Oz in person when I was a Henson intern...I'm NOT going to miss him again

    Yeah, and the release says that it's also going to be a memorial for Richard Hunt, seeing as he grew up in nearby Bergen.

    Sounds like a lot of forum members are going to be there - maybe we should show up with nametags with both our real names and screen names?

    I hope to meet Frank Oz too!

    I have already met Jerry Nelson, Dave Goelz, Steve Whitmire, Kevin Clash and Fran Brill. :)

    I never got to meet Carol Spinney yet either, This is so exiting! Me and the folks are definitely going to this event!

    I got my ticket, I hope nothing happens in between now and then, hehe. It would be cool to see some forum members!

    Btw, the website does say are not necessarily guaranteed. After ordering, I would email the box office (boxoffice@wpunj.edu) to confirm your ticket orders.

    We've gotten tickets for my family, and it looks like we got a confirmation e-mail, but I'm thinking about dropping them a line to double-check.
