The Muppets: The Musical!

Now that Disney owns the Muppets, it’s time for their new owners to take advantage of a strong property by turning it into a Broadway musical, as with The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast.

Only the Muppets were about characters, and we may be too fixated on celebrities now. So we need a Muppets musical starring celebrities: Toby Maguire as Kermit the Frog; RuPaul as Miss Piggy; Ben Stiller as Fozzie Bear; Christopher Lloyd as Gonzo; and Tom Waits as Rolf the Dog. (Just play a Tom Waits piano weepie, then listen to any of Rolf’s songs, and tell me I’m wrong…)
