PEOPLES IS PEOPLES
The Muppets took the Big Apple in 1984, and tonight, they finally take Brooklyn. Puppetry Arts hosts a screening of The Muppets Take Manhattan, bringing Jim Hensons starry-eyed anthropomorphs back to the city, where they hope to land a Broadway gig. Things dont go smoothly for the cute and cuddly folk at first, but they make a lot of neat friends along the way, like Art Carney, Gregory Hines, Mayor Ed Koch, Liza Minnelli, and Joan Rivers in an unforgettable turn as a fetishistic makeup artist. Sesame Streets Gordon, Roscoe Orman, is the special guest speaker.
