In The Muppets Take Manhattan, Jim Henson's Muppets are Manhattanites yearning to get a production on Broadway. Luckily, Kermit the Frog has created a successful variety show, which he staged at fictional Danhurst College. His desperation for backers to get it on Broadway (and to win the heart of Miss Piggy), leads him to take a waitering job to support himself. At the restaurant, he meets the friendly Jennie (Juliana Donald), whose parent owns the business and who becomes a source of jealousy for Miss Piggy. Will the Muppets get the production on Broadway? Find out, while enjoying fun musical numbers in locations around NYC! Rated G.

More than forty years after her death, Helen Keller is still known internationally as the little deaf-blind girl, the "miracle child" who triumphed over adversity. It is an image that endures through the Hollywood film "The Miracle Worker", but Keller never chose that image, and she battled against it all her life. Hidden from the public gaze was the real Helen Keller, a flesh-and-blood woman, writer and radical activist, suffragette, and socialist.
