On October 15th, the greatest fairytale never told comes to life as never before in DreamWorks' Shrek The Musical. This highly acclaimed Broadway production is based on the smash-hit movie that many families have come to know and love.
Shrek The Musical was filmed on stage to capture the magic of a Broadway performance and stars an amazing celebrated cast including Brian d'Arcy James (Shrek), Sutton Foster (Fiona), Daniel Breaker (Donkey), Christopher Sieber (Lord Farquaad) and John Tartaglia (Pinocchio).
Since it was shot live on Broadway with 10 cameras, fans are able to bring home the magic of Broadway and get the best seat in the house thanks to the Deluxe Edition Blu-ray and DVD which came out this month! As a fan of Shrek myself (along with my family), I was excited to learn about this new release. Now we can join in on the performance with sing along Shrek-tastic songs!
The Deluxe Edition Blu-ray goes even deeper into the fairytale's journey, taking viewers behind-the-scenes to see how the show became a smash hit that "will make your heart dance." (Cindy Adams, The New York Post). Interested in learning more?
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.
