Shrek the Musical
Shrek The Musical, originally directed by Jason Moore and Rob Ashford, is based on the story and characters from William Steig’s book Shrek and the Academy Award®-winning DreamWorks Animation’s feature film. It follows the story of an outcast ogre named Shrek who lives alone in a swamp. When a gaggle of fairy tale misfits are cast out of their homes by Lord Farquaad, they invade Shrek's swampy solitude. Shrek then finds himself on a life-changing journey along with a wisecracking Donkey and the feisty Princess Fiona. Featuring songs from five-time Tony Award nominee Jeanine Tesori and a sidesplitting script by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire, Shrek The Musical combines the bawdy humor of the original film with spectacular musical numbers added for the stage production.
