Show #262 – September 13, 2015

This is the second of a 2-part series documenting The MuppetCast road trip to Cleveland, OH for the show Electric Mayhem: A Musical Tribute to Jim Henson. This episode features live performances from Act II of the show. The Cleveland Stage Alliance is posting video of many of the songs on their YouTube channel.

Song-wise, Electric Mayhem had a little bit of everything. Whatever your favorite Muppet movie or TV show, it was included in this spectacular musical evening. An audience of adults turned into little children again as “Mahna-Mahna”, “Rainbow Connection”, and even the Fraggle Rock theme song sprung from the stage. Classics and newer Muppet songs yielded surprises around every turn, punctuated by uproarious laughter and applause. Jim would have been proud.
