Shrek The Musical

Preview by Jack Foley

THE greatest fairy tale never told comes to life as never before in DreamWorks’ Shrek The Musical, the highly acclaimed Broadway production based on the smash-hit movie.

Now you can bring the magic home this Christmas and get the best seat in the house when the Deluxe Edition Blu-ray™ and DVD arrives in the UK on December 2, 2013, and on Digital HD™ from November 18.

Featuring a fantastic score of 17 all-new songs, Shrek The Musical was filmed live on stage with 10 cameras and directed by Michael Warren who flawlessly captured the magic of a Broadway performance starring an amazing celebrated cast including Brian d’Arcy James (Shrek), Sutton Foster (Fiona), Daniel Breaker (Donkey), Christopher Sieber (Lord Farquaad), and John Tartaglia (Pinocchio).

Fans can join in on the performance with sing along Shrek-tastic songs on the Deluxe Edition Blu-ray™ which goes even deeper into the fairytale’s journey, taking viewers behind-the-scenes to see how the show became a smash hit.

Shrek The Musical tells the story of a swamp-dwelling ogre who goes on a life-changing adventure to reclaim the deed to his land. Joined by a wise-cracking donkey, this unlikely hero fights a fearsome dragon, rescues a feisty princess and learns that real friendship and true love aren’t only found in fairy tales.

The musical is based on the story and characters from William Steig’s book Shrek!, as well as the DreamWorks Animation film and features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize® winner, David Lindsay-Abaire, music by Olivier Award-winner Jeanine Tesori, and is directed by Tony Award® nominee Jason Moore.

Shrek The Musical received eight 2009 Tony Award® nominations including Best Musical, winning Best Costume Design of a Musical (Tim Hatley) and received a Grammy Award® nomination for Best Musical Show Album.

So, sit down and let Shrek and his pals transport you to a magical land far, far away, when Shrek The Musical stomps to Blu-ray, Digital HD™ and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
