The Muppets might be heading to Broadway

Personally, I feel that you never really grow out of the Muppets, except for that weird twilight when you're a teenager and you hate everything. But then you quickly go back to realizing how awesome the Muppets are, and it's hard not to love Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal, Gonzo, and Fozzie all over again.

Their popularity is evident in their films that are released every so often — often a spoof on already-beloved tales, but sometimes, as with the 2011 movie "The Muppets," a completely original story. So is it really that strange there's a rumor the Muppets may head to Broadway?

Recently, Variety reported that Disney Theatrical Productions held a stage show of the Muppets at Disney’s New Amsterdam Theater to explore the possibility a full Broadway production. The show included a few sets and 85 Muppets, performing pre-existing Muppet material.

Should the show head to Broadway? Well... how about a pros and cons list?
