SESAME STREET MUSICAL - Rumours of a West End transfer

Sesame Street Musical - London Sesame Street: The Musical is an off-Broadway stage production featuring songs and characters from the wonderful TV show, Sesame Street, first announced in a press release to Variety in June 2022. Now there might be a London transfer on the way. If the rumours are right, we might also see one or more British actors playing the audience member who joins the show.


In the show, the Sesame Street Muppets are busy putting on their own musical, but they’ve forgotten to get a special guest star. A lost human audience member is wrangled into the proceedings and taught how to sing and dance for the show's big final number.
