Do You Know The Muffin Man?
Since 2001, Shrek has become a cultural phenomenon and has received widespread acclaim for how it takes traditional fairy tales and reinvents them with a comedic twist. The beloved tale of a grumpy ogre on his quest to rescue Princess Fiona from a dragon-guarded tower, along with a wisecracking donkey, is known for its witty dialogue, iconic characters, and ingenious pop culture references.
Adapted from the storyline of DreamWorks 2001 animation Shrek, Shrek The Musical incorporates elements from Shrek 2 and Shrek Forever After, as well as William Steig's 1990 book Shrek!. Following a trial run in Seattle, the original Broadway show premiered in December 2008, concluding its run in January 2010 after more than a year. Subsequently, a U.S. tour began in 2010, and a revised West End production ran from June 2011 to February 2013, now it is heading to the West End in 2024.
The show features fabulous songs like 'I'm A Believer', 'Big Bright Beautiful World' and 'I Know It's Today' and is the perfect night out for big kids and little kids alike.

#TheatreReporters: SHREK THE MUSICAL REVIEW
From the heights of the first film to its sequels and spin-offs, each consecutive Shrek film has gone downhill. Shrek The Musical is just a watered down version of the original and continues the sequels' descent. Don't be fooled by the giant 'S' outside the theatre or the silly ears - this is not the Shrek you know and love.
