Shrek The Musical

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 film Shrek and William Steig’s 1990 book Shrek!. After a trial run in Seattle and extensive changes, the show began previews at The Broadway Theatre on November 8, 2008, and the original Broadway production opened on December 14 2008. The show closed after a run of over 12 months on January 3, 2010 after 441 performances and 37 previews. It was followed by a tour of the United States which opened in 2010 and a re-vamped West End production starting in June 2011. Since its debut, the musical’s rights have been available for independent overseas theatres, who have chosen to stage their own versions of the show.

At the time, it was one of the most expensive musicals to open on Broadway, at an estimated $25 million, and generally had good reviews.
