Ever since Sesame Street went on the air in 1969, Jim Henson’s Muppets have shared their home with a cast of talented humans. These performers are the real people in the neighborhood. The cast members will meet fans after the presentation and Sonia Manzano will sign copies of her autobiography, Becoming Maria, which will be available for purchase in the Museum Store.
