Look out Big Apple!
Not sure why they changed the name from Puppet Up, but THIS is where Henson and Muppets belong: the big apple!
Seems like they changed the name for marketing reasons. Maybe they found the word "puppet" in the title turned people off, maybe they wanted a fresh start so that audiences knew this wasn't a rerun of previous Puppet Up material, maybe the Puppet Up title is legally tied to different backters, maybe they just liked this name better. Whatever the reason, this looks like good stuff. I hope they travel to San Francisco. We'd love this!
I'm guessing it's just a new "theme" the latest shows are built around; like a different opening number mainly plus new sketch categories, puppets, etc. Same format but new elements to keep it fresh.
Well it's good to see the HA! brand kept alive. I just want some merchandise!
Puppet Up coming to NYC under a new name at the Union Square theatre. That's interesting, and it's arrival date of St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) makes it good material for a birthday present for a very important person, the person is question of course being myself, I'll see if I can get my wife to arrange this as a birthday present.
i found a tv commercial for it here!
Me and the folks are gonna try to see one of the shows in either April or May.
I've always wanted to see one of the Henson Puppet Improve shows on stage!
have you seen the "casting" tape on youtube. HYSTERICAL!
Yes I have, And yes it is hilarious!
Bill Barretta & Brian Henson work great together!
they met when they were 17. i guess after 30 years or so, you can finish each others' sentences!
I also Love Bill's Bobby Vegan character! Ya know he came from the Muppet character Howard Tubman from Muppets Tonight.
totally...IMO, bobby is the funniest character to come around in a long time. samson isn't bad either, but he's the straight man...er, sorta...
It would be nice if Bobby & Samson were in the Stuffed & Unstrung show on stage as well.
They could probably introduce each show.
WOW. 30 seconds, but oh such a glorious 30 seconds.
"Mu---" , haha. Well, anything Henson puppet related to me will always be Muppets.
Just found it! ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hWD--iJ0wg for those wondering)
haha, crazy stuff.
Man I didnt know Joe the Armadillo swung that way
that's so funny you say that. they WILL introduce the show. only "via satellite" on a big screen. the idea is that they're on vacation...i've seen a clip...should be a great intro.
stuffed and unstrung viral video #2
the second installment is now up on youtube!
This looks like its absolutely going to blow away puppet up. For people wondering what its about or will be like,
Check out the description and stills from here:
WOW! That sounds awesome!
I can't wait to see a performance! Me and the folks are still trying to find the best day to go.
BTW, Where did you see the clip?
