Shrek the Musical - Blu-ray Review

I received product for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

Synopsis:

Shrek The Musical tells 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.


My Review:

I'm not much of a fan of musicals. In fact, it's rare that I'll watch one. I do, however, really like the Shrek franchise and thought I'd give the Broadway production a go. Shrek the Musical is very similar to the movie, except on stage with live characters and music. I still much prefer the animated movie, but Shrek the Musical was a production I was able to sit through and watch without feeling irked. There is some crass humor, but the overall rendering of this musical was satisfying.
