MUPPETS IN MOSCOW The Unexpected Crazy True Story of Making Sesame Street in Russia

by | Read by Emily Lahey Shoov

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrator Emily Lahey Shoov candidly delivers the incredible story of producer Natasha Lance Rogoff's attempt to distribute "Sesame Street" to Russia in the 1990s. Though the Soviet Union had collapsed, Russia's strict censorship laws gripped media outlets, but revolutionaries like Rogoff and her associates pushed toward a new era. Shoov honestly narrates Rogoff's experiences as she struggles to bring a compassionate television program to a nation's children. The heartbreak and harsh lessons learned through the crippled relationship between Russia and Western countries are expertly narrated. Support from unexpected places will motivate listeners to hold onto hope when determination is challenged. This is a truly inspiring story immortalized in a splendid raw performance.
