Broadway Theater in New York
Address: 1681 Broadway @ 53rd Street
Opened: December 14, 2008
Based on William Steig's novel and Dreamworks' popular
animated film, Shrek the Musical follows the adventures
of Shrek, a lovable swamp-dwelling ogre; his wisecracking
sidekick, Donkey; the lovely Princess Fiona; Lord Farquaad
and a chorus of everybody's favorite fractured fairytale
creatures. With more layers than ever and a completely
original new score, Shrek the Musical proves that there's
more to the story than meets the ears.
(Rabbit Hole) provides the book and lyrics for Shrek the
Musical, with a score by Jeanine Tesori (Caroline, or
Change) and direction by Jason Moore (Avenue Q). The musical
will come to Broadway after an out-of-town tryout at Seattle's
5th Avenue Theatre from August 14 to September 21, 2008.
Don't be in
a land "far, far away" when Shrek the Musical
hits Broadway this fall!
