The Muppets

More than 60 years since their creation, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gozzie Bear and the rest of The Muppets crew are giving their first full-length live performance. The Muppets Take the Bowl heads to the legendary Hollywood Bowl stage with full orchestra for three nights in September, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association details today (Aug 16).

Conductor Thomas Wilkins will join the Muppets' most celebrated characters for the production, plus some Muppets who have not been seen since the final episodes of The Muppet Show more than 35 years ago. The show is also teasing a musical performance from the iconic Miss Piggy, the debut of all-new original chapters of the "Pigs in Space," "Veterinarian's Hospital" and "Muppet Labs" sketches, "special celebrity guests" and a fireworks finale featuring none other than Crazy Harry.

The Muppets Take The Bowl makes its debut at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Sept 8. at 8:00 p.m. PST, followed by encore performances on Sept. 9 (8:00 p.m. PST) and Sept. 10 (7:30 p.m. PST). Tickets are available here.
