SHREK BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: December 14, 2008
Synopsis: A new Broadway musical about a charming yet rundown outer-borough neighborhood, where the residents - both puppets and humans - deal with everyday New York challenge like getting a job, falling in love and discovering their purpose in life.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"Tis love, the fairy tales tell us, that turns dross into gold and clods into gods. So it seems appropriate that about halfway through the leaden fairy-tale-theme costume party called “Shrek the Musical,” which opened Sunday night at the Broadway Theater, it’s a love scene that gives us a startling glimpse of true happiness."
"It’s not easy being green. Take Brian d’Arcy James, the talented actor who plays the underdog ogre Shrek in a green fat suit and hamlet. He must also adopt the same Scottish accent used by Mike Myers."
"As that old Kermit the Frog standard goes, it's not easy "Bein' Green," but the folks at DreamWorks have done their darndest to make sure we are entertained at "Shrek the Musical," the company's lavish stage adaptation of its hit animated movie."
"Countless films of recent decades have set out to spin a gently subversive fairy tale with a contemporary edge, but few have succeeded as wildly as "Shrek." Conjuring genuine enchantment without quaintness or treacly sentimentality, the 2001 movie enlivened its storybook traditions with rude humor, gleefully anachronistic pop-culture references and knockabout characters brimming with heart. That recipe remains largely intact in "Shrek the Musical," along with much of the irreverent charm that's been successively diluted in two overworked screen sequels. If the storytelling is bumpy in patches and the songs don't quite soar, the show never stints on spectacle or laughs, making it a viable contender for a slice of the Disney market on Broadway."
