Shrek, The Musical
Author(s): Music by Jeanine Tesori
Book and Lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire
Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure. “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 situation that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand... and his name is Shrek.
