About Shrek the Musical

SHREK THE MUSICAL, with music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire, debuted on Broadway in December 2008 and is based on the 2001 Dreamworks film and the 1990 book Shrek! by William Steig. SHREK tells the story of a swamp-living, bug-eating ogre and his journey to save a princess from an isolated tower. Along the way, Shrek encounters characters straight from our favorite fairytales and nursery rhymes while making new friends, experiencing new adventures, and finding true love in the most unexpected of places. SHREK reminds audiences that it is who you are and what you make of it that matters most in our lives, not what you appear to be.
