Muppets in Moscow is the incredible true story of the author's odyssey to create Sesame Street in Russia. It reveals how--in between bombings and political chaos in 1990s Moscow--a team of Russian and American artists, producers, educators, writers, and puppeteers overcame their many differences to create an unprecedented hit in a post-communist era.
