Shrek The Musical is a musical with music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire. It is based on the 2001 DreamWorks Animation's film Shrek and William Steig's 1990 book Shrek!. Make room for ogre-sized family fun as the greatest fairy tale never told comes to life in a whole new way in this breathtaking Broadway musical adaptation of the hit movie Shrek!
RadicalMedia filmed the Broadway production for Dreamworks during the original run of the Broadway show. While the production was filmed in 2010, it took more than 3 years for Dreamworks to release the show to market. The main reason behind this was allegedly the NETWorks tour that had to close before Dreamworks could announce the filming.
In his review for High-Def Digest, Luke Hickman noted that 'the filming style of this theatrical performance is a step above most recorded stage shows because they don't hesitate place the camera in the very best position for a scene – even if it impedes the view of the live audience.'
