Shrek, The Musical currently on it new American tour is being received positively by both critics and audience, as announced by Bill Damaschke, President of DreamWorks Theatricals. The fairy tale story and charismatic characters of the musical are extracted from the 1990 book of the same name written by William Steig and also from the movie of the same name. The movie Shrek was first presented by DreamWorks in 2001 while the first original Broadway production of musical arrived on Broadway on 2008. The musical is directed by Tony Award nominee Jason Moore and Tony and Emmy Award-winner Rob Ashford and its music is scored by Olivier Award-winner Jeanine Tesori.
Shrek, the musical began its first ever North American tour in July 2010 and now DreamWorks Theatricals is presenting the musical at Hennepin Theatre Trust's Orpheum Theatre, Minneapolis, MN, where it will run through February 1-February 6. DreamWorks is brining this one week performance at Orpheum Theatre as a part of Trust’ s 2010/11 Broadway Across America-Minneapolis season. Hartford, CT will be the next stop for the musical to run from February 15-February 20. The DreamWorks Theatricals will bring the musical at PlayhouseSquare, Cleveland for two weeks performance from March 1-March 13.
The cast of the Shrek, the musical’s North American tour features all members from the original Broadway production cast including Eric Petersen in the role of Shrek, Haven Burton in the role of Princess Fiona, Alan Mingo, Jr. in the role of Donkey and the Shrek’s best friend, and David F.M. Vaughn in the role of Lord Farquaad.
The main storyline of the musical meets closely with the story of the original movie except for a few additions. The lively musical is known for its colors, action, staging and voices where even an animal like Dragon can sing well. The theme of the musical is amazingly performed by all the artists and it clearly tells that Shrek is angry at world as world hates him for his ugly looks while Princess Fiona is desperately waiting for her prince charming in a hope that he will rescue her from the tower where she has been trapped since she was 7.
Shrek, the musical has a lot of fun for the kids and they enjoy every bit of the special effects, adventure and their favorite fair tale characters dressed in the same clothes as they saw them in the Shrek movie. Shrek is just another Halloween part for kids where they see everyone dressed in some strange and catchy costumes and wonder how these stars managed to get fit into them. Buy cheap Shrek tickets to enjoy all the Shrek shows live in theater.
