Muppet retrospective at NW Film Center  
It's time to play the music! It's time to light the lights! It's time to meet the Muppets at the Portland Art Museum's Whitsell Auditorium!

The NW Film Center is having a special retrospective in May entitled "Muppets, Music, & Magic: Jim Henson's Legacy".

"The retrospective presents a treasure trove of Henson's extraordinarily imaginative work, including TV pilots, shorts, commercials, promotional films, feature films, and rarities galore. To further explore the magic of Henson's world of fantasy, Emmy Award-winning collaborator Dave Goelz will host 'Muppet History 101' and 'Commercials and Experiments,' and answer your every question. One of the principal Muppeteers for over 30 years, Goelz has designed and performed dozens of beloved characters, including the Great Gonzo and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew."

We've already bought tickets to the two Dave Goelz presentations on May 2 and 3, and Labyrinth on May 10.

You articulated rat on a stick!

Re: You articulated rat on a stick!
It doesn't appear that "Muppets, Music, & Magic" is coming to Seattle. (http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Muppets,_Music_&_Magic)

However, the exhibit "Jim Henson's Fantastic World" is coming to the Science Fiction Museum in Seattle in May: http://www.empsfm.org/exhibitions/index.asp?categoryID=177&ccID=254

If I had two articulate rats, I'd give you one.
