Shrek The Musical Lands With A Thud

Shrek The Musical
Shrek The Musical has become the latest film adaptation to hit the West End stage and has landed with an almighty thud, stamping it’s mark for what should be years to come.

Early previews of the show received mixed reactions as the show producers worked hard on adjusting the Broadway production to be more suited to the London musicals audience. Their perseverance has been well worthwhile as the show has been riotously received and described as ‘Hysterically Funny. Glorious.’ The Independent, ‘Deliciously Funny. Spectacular.’ Daily Telegraph  and ‘Joyous. The most fun you’ll ever have.’ The Mirror

Shrek The Musical
The musical centres on the first instalment of the much loved Oscar-winning DreamWorks animation. Shrek (Nigel Lindsay) and Donkey (Richard Blackwood) set off an adventure to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona (Amanda Holden), who is being guarded by a fire breathing love-sick dragon.

Shrek The Musical does take a few numbers to find its feet but by the time the opening of ‘Welcome To Duloc’ starts things are starting to get in full swing. The appearance of Nigel Harman as Lord Farquaad raises the humour stakes as, in a show-stealing performance, the actor takes centre stage with a wonderfully zealous performance delivered entirely on his knees.

Shrek tickets have been flying out the door on the back of great reviews for Nigel Harman and Amanda Holden (Princess Fiona) and it is easy to see why. There is a certain lack of spark between Nigel Lindsay as Shrek and Richard Blackwood as Donkey when they hold the stage by themselves but Shrek The Musical is still great fun entertainment for the whole family and concludes with a rousing reception of ‘I’m A Believer’.

This is one of the best new comedy musicals to have hit the London musicals scene in recent years and is not to be missed. Shrek The Musical tickets are available from just £25.00 and are selling fast.
