We're going to be talking about The Muppets on the show tonight.
Today we celebrate the anniversary of the 1979 release of The Muppet Movie. Se let's make a rainbow connection and chat about these beloved characters that have an new show on ABC this fall.
This episode features a review of Muppets Most Wanted plus an interview with film producer Janet Carrus regarding Musical Chairs, a sweet and inspiring movie about wheelchair ballroom dancing. In the latest Muppet adventure, our heroes become involved in a jewelry heist led by a Kermit lookalike. In Musical Chairs, an aspiring dancer overcomes tragedy by learning to ballroom dance in a wheelchair. With the Muppets and ballroom dancing taking center stage, this should be an intriguing show!
Janet Carrus, producer of Musical Chairs, has transformed many of her own personal inspirations into a variety of projects that empower people living with disabilities. She combined her passions for competitive ballroom dance and disability advocacy to help found a program to teach the astounding art of wheelchair ballroom dance in that community. Carrus’ inspiration to produce films grew directly out of this experience.
Musical Chairs was nominated for a Fred & Adele Astaire Award for Outstanding Feature Film in 2012. In 2013, it received a GLAAD nomination for Best Film in Limited Release and won six awards at the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival.
Janet’s other films include Tio Papi and Remembering Lawrence, a Film for Anna Halprin.
