Elmo, Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch and the rest of the Sesame Street gang are getting musical in a new stage show that is due to open off-Broadway.
Sesame Street: The Musical will open at Theater Row on West 42nd Street in New York from 22nd September to 27th November, reports Variety.
Special guest stars from Broadway and beyond are expected to co-star alongside the cast, with the show featuring Sesame Street’s classic songs–plus new numbers created especially for the stage show.
“We are so honoured and proud to partner with Sesame Workshop to bring Sesame Street’s first original Off-Broadway musical, along with its iconic characters, to the stage,” said director/producer Jonathan Rockefeller.
“We believe it will be a production for children and fans of ALL ages to embrace and enjoy.”
