Editorial Reviews

Take a peek behind the curtain with HENSON'S PLACE, the original documentary about Jim Henson, the creative visionary that brought us the enchantment of “The Muppet Show,” THE DARK CRYSTAL and more! From honing his skills as a puppeteer in college to creating some of the world’s most beloved characters in the last 30 years, see the imaginative genius like never before. Enjoy interviews with Henson, his wife Jane, long-time puppeteer partner Frank Oz and others, as they share memories of the legendary “Muppet Show,” “Sesame Street,” and “Fraggle Rock,” with a behind-the-scenes look inside the revolutionary Henson Workshop. Experience Henson’s desires to not only create new worlds, but also to celebrate the child inside all of us!
