Dir. Frank Oz. 1984, 94 mins. 35mm. With Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, Dave Goelz, Steve Whitmire. When the Muppets's college revue is a big hit, they decide to take it all the way to Broadway. Filled with cameos by such New Yorkers as Mayor Ed Koch, Gregory Hines, and Liza Minnelli, the movie ends with a wedding between Kermit and Miss Piggy. Is it part of the show... or could it be real? Recommended for ages 6+.
