    Yes, I should've said cast member on Saturday Night Live instead.

    from what I have seen on YouTube, I thought it was a great show.

    This woman caught quite a lot of the show, including a bit with Wayne and Wanda. Since I like seeing the puppeteers, it was cool seeing Tyler Bunch and Ryan Dillon doing 2 of the Muppet clowns.

    I have watched clips from the Hollywood Bowl and the O2. Here are a few thoughts:

    This show should come to as many cities and towns as possible. For me, in addition to The Muppet Movie, it is the best example of why we love the Muppets.

    I can only judge by the videos but I feel the recasts are all going well.

    Speaking of recasts I know David Rudman's Scooter has been praised, but he is also doing great work with Janice.

    I am delighted Yolanda is sticking around.

    Is Uncle Deadly too difficult to fit in a live show if Matt is doing Kermit? He is always welcome.

    Seeing Charles Dance do a slightly off conga line with extras who seemed to have escaped from Mama Mia and Pepe is one of the best things currently on the internet.

    Kylie Minogue looks younger with every performance. (This may be a Benjamin Button situation).

    I wish Louise Gold was able to participate. Perhaps she was already booked elsewhere.

    The parade of obscure characters should be expanded at every show.

    Is there any chance the artwork (I will call it stained glass - I know it was not) would ever be available as a print? Or a shirt? I would pay cash money for it. It was gorgeous.

    He's still there; he's in the opening theme, has a couple of pre-taped bits with Piggy and delivers the intro for her big musical number.

    I missed his intro. I know he is still part of the company, but the clips I saw he was mostly chorus.

    Anyone know what happened to Steps? Apparently they were one missing in the Saturday matinee and weren't in the evening show at all so no musical guest.

    i guess it was no"Tragedy" :o:halo::D

    I never got a chance to see the O2 show myself. But I wonder...how does a multi-city tour in the style of the Hollywood Bowl and O2 shows sound? In my home city of Seattle, they'd look right at home at the Paramount Theatre...just like in TMS!

    I would think it would doable, but I don't know if that is what they are planning. It would be great and I know people around the US and beyond myself included would go.

    Saw some parts of the show on Youtube. I have to say I'm surprised to see them get a Doctor Who crossover in these shows.

    In one of the Doctor Who podcasts that I listen to, one of the hosts said that Tom Baker (who played the 4th Doctor) told him that he was originally planned to be in the show... I don't know if he was just unavailable for the night or what have you but anyhow I thought it was just an interesting tidbit.
