The greatest fairy tale never told comes to life as never before in SHREK THE MUSICAL, the highly acclaimed Broadway production based on the smash-hit movie. Called a "triumph of comic imagination" (Elysa Gardner, USA Today) that "never stints on spectacle or laughs" (David Rooney, Variety), SHREK THE MUSICAL received eight 2009 Tony Awardr nominations including Best Musical. Featuring a fantastic score of 17 all-new songs, along with unforgettable characters and outrageous humor, it's ogre-sized fun for the whole family!
Shrek The Musical tells the story of a swamp-dwelling ogre who goes on a life-changing adventure to reclaim the deed to his land. Joined by a wise-cracking donkey, this unlikely hero fights a fearsome dragon, rescues a feisty princess and learns that real friendship and true love aren't only found in fairy tales.
The musical is based on the story and characters from William Steig's book Shrek!, as well as the DreamWorks Animation film and features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize® winner, David Lindsay-Abaire, music by Olivier Award-winner Jeanine Tesori, and is directed by Tony Award nominee Jason Moore. Shrek The Musical is produced by DreamWorks Theatricals and Neal Street Productions, Ltd.
