It’s the typical romantic fairy-tale story: a brave hero and
his loyal steed on an adventure to rescue a beautiful princess from a tower
guarded by a fire-breathing dragon. However, when you realise the hero is a
big, green ogre and the loyal steed is a back-chatting donkey the story is
bound to not go as planned! Add in a wannabe King
with a height complex, a bunch of fairy-tale superstars, and a biscuit with
attitude, and you've got this year's must see new musical comedy, so be quick
to get your Shrek The Musical
After a lengthy showing on
Broadway from December 2008 to January 2010 as well as 8 Tony Award
nominations, the Broadway production creative team returns for the London
show, featuring new songs and scenes.
Playing the lead role of the green monster himself, Shrek,
is Nigel Lindsay, who most recently played Muslim convert Barry in the 2010
smash hit film Four Lions as well as
appearing in many productions both televised and onstage. Shrek’s love
interest, Princess Fiona, will be played by Amanda Holden, judge on the Britain’s Got Talent series on ITV as
well as being a West End star in her own right. MC and comedian Richard
Blackwood will play Donkey and former Eastenders
bad boy Nigel Harman will play the evil Lord Farquad.
Accompanied by this stellar cast,
the show boasts two directors, Jason Moore, whose London credits include
puppet musical Avenue Q, and Rob
Ashford, who directed the highly acclaimed Donmar Warehouse production of A Streetcar Named Desire.
