"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek . . ." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue.  Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero.  Luckily, there's one on hand . . . and his name is Shrek!

Shrek first burst onto the scene in 2001 with the release of the DreamWorks Animation's feature film Shrek.  Lending their voices to bring the characters to life were Mike Myers (Shrek), Eddie Murphy (Donkey), Cameron Diaz (Fiona), and John Lithgow (Lord Farquaad).  The film was an instant success, earning over $480 million worldwide.  It also went on to win the first ever Academy Award for Best Animated Film.  The film's success spawned three sequels, two holiday specials, and a spin-off movie.

In 2008, Shrek and his friends made their live stage debut in a pre-Broadway try out in Seattle, Washington.  The cast included Broadway veterans Brian d'Arcy James in the title role, Sutton Foster as Princess Fiona, and Christopher Sieber as Lord Farquaad.  Following its Seattle engagement, Shrek - The Musical opened on Broadway December 14, 2008 at the Broadway Theatre.  When the show closed in 2010, it had played 37 perviews and 441 regular performances.  The production was nominated for nine 2009 Tony Awards -- taking home the Tony for Best Costume Design -- and twelve Drama Desk Awards -- winning for Outstanding Actor (d'Arcy James), Outstanding Costume Design, and Outstanding Set Design).

Shrek - The Musical kicks off Way Off Broadway's 2018 Mega-Mini Season with a bang and a lot of laughes.  If you loved the movie, you won't want to miss the live stage production!
