Shrek was originally released in 2001 and it was the year I got together with my other half. It must have been love because he let me drag him to the cinema to see Shrek and I’ve loved the film ever since.
Shrek has been so popular that they have also released three sequels, Shrek 2, Shrek the Third and Shrek Forever After and also two holiday specials, Shrek the Halls and Scared Shrekless, and even a spin off, Puss in Boots.
The greatest fairy tale never told come to life as never before in 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!
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 (Shrek), Sutton Foster (Fiona), Daniel Breaker (Donkey), Christopher Sieber (Lord Farquaad), and John Tartaglia (Pinocchio).
Shrek The Musical tell 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 DVD features a songbook with Sing-Along – Kids and adults alike can pick their favourite song and sing along, as seven songs from the musical will have their lyrics appear on the bottom of the screen as you watch the actual musical performance on-screen. You can play all of the tunes uninterrupted or choose to randomize the musical experience with the “shuffle mode”.
I really enjoyed everything about this DVD, the packaging was eye-catching, the green S was a holographic green so it really stood out. Everyone will enjoy Shrek The Musical, it’s a great family show that stays true to the film. With songs that are catchy, you will be singing along in no time.
I enjoy going to the theatre but it can be a very expensive hobby, a DVD at a fraction of the price is much more cost-effective and you can watch it over and over!
Shrek The Musical would make a great Christmas gift for a Shrek fan or a theatre fan, they will love it!
