CONFIRMED: ‘Muppets on Broadway’ in Disney Theatrical’s Sights

Nearly a year ago, we speculated that Disney Theatrical may have been working on creating a staged production involving the Muppets. Fast forward to last month (via today) and Variety is reporting that Disney Theatrical has in fact taken steps towards making it a reality.

The article quotes Disney Theatrical head Thomas Schumacher as acknowledging the move, qualifying it was effectively a proof of concept to see if something more substantial would be feasible. It goes on to quote Schumacher as being ‘intrigued’ by the potential of bringing the Muppets to the stage.
