Jim Henson’s World: Q&A with Craig Shemin and Friends


Special guest: Fran Brill

Craig Shemin, President of The Jim Henson Legacy and author of The Muppet Character Encyclopedia, and his co-host, performer Stephanie D’Abruzzo, return for another informal online conversation about the work and creations of Jim Henson. This month’s special guest is Fran Brill, the longtime puppeteer best known as the original performer of Prairie Dawn and Zoe on Sesame Street. Brill was the first woman puppeteer that Henson hired to join his expanding company in the early 1970s. In addition to answering audience questions, Craig and Stephanie will display some very special “show and tell” items.
