Not great

Disney managed to adapt 'The Lion King' and 'Beauty and the Beast' for stage, so it was no surprise that DreamWorks tried to do the same with 'Shrek'.

However, why the previously mentioned two Disney films worked was because they had some very good songs built into them in the first place, which for all its plaudits, 'Shrek' didn't have.

It's a decent enough stage show, but lacks the songs it needs to be great, and I didn't enjoy the changes to the story either.

Sorry, this wasn't for me.

Enjoyable fare, I'm a believer

I saw this on a flight and it brought back fond memories of the movie.

I don't often see the musicals so it was great to see it on screen, although the magic may not be the same, but still. I was amazed by how Princess Fiona could transform so quickly into the Shrek-like character at the end. Maybe this is revealed in the DVD extras.

The ending...I would have liked to have seen all the cast members being presented to the audience, as we only saw clips of the main five. Also, Sutton Foster made a funny face the end, and I'm not sure why she did, but it was funny.

The end song "I'm a believer" was very rousing, especially seeing all the cast perform it.

As good as the Movie

Shrek the Musical does its absolute best to best the original movie, the film that won the very first Academy Award for Animated feature, and the movie that all around the world kids and adults love--and it damn near succeeds.

This Broadway show keeps everything you love about the movie--The jokes, the quirks, the heartbreak and the love and adds fun, funny songs that only improve and enhance the story. The production team stitched together their musical enthusiasm and a narrative that absolutely everyone loves. With such a beloved movie as fodder for Broadway inspiration this could've been a disaster. It is clear that they cradled this movie close to their hearts and put their souls into every part of it. Shrek and Fiona fall in love and make you laugh and cry, but the side characters such as Pinocchio get a say in their fates too. Sutton Foster and Brian d'Aarcy James embody the two leads and you cannot wait for them to fall in love and take you on their wacky, fairy- tale adventure.

It's a bonus that Broadway allowed this production to be wide released in DVD format, because it is a treasure that everyone should experience. 8.5/10
