Sleeping on stage
Maybe these'll come in handy or find a place eventually, so I'm parking them here:
- I think the muppet you marked Pepe is actully beaker. — Dre Sayas (talk) 20:15, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
The Muppets sets the theatre within a studio in LA. This is the first Muppet production to do so, as far as I know. There are hints all over The Muppet Show that the theatre is located in New York City. Before we go ahead and make a case for it in the article, I just wanted to start listing examples here on the talk page. If you find one, add it to the bulleted list below with your signature and times stamp (~~~~ until message wall is enabled for articles in a couple weeks). —Scott (message me) 05:22, December 24, 2011 (UTC)
- Episode 308: Loretta Lynn - when Gonzo and Kermit are being taken away from the train station on the back of a train, Gonzo says they're headed for Pittsburgh, but they have to change trains in Altoona. Although the episode doesn't take place at the theatre, the geography works for close proximity to NYC. And when Loretta Lynn gets off the train, she assumes Scooter is there to pick her up and take her to the show. —Scott (message me) 05:22, December 24, 2011 (UTC)
The Muppets (2011)
I'm trying to work out the layout of the theatre as seen in The Muppets. I've read the junior novelization and dissected most fo the trailers, and the best guess I can make about it is that the theatre is a spot inside a studio lot. Alan Arkin gives tours of the studio lot, and we see them in the area behind the building(s). But we're also being shown the theatre entrance and box office from the street (in real life, Hollywood Boulevard). Here are some notes on the trailer screenshots.
