The most beloved swamp-dwelling ogre of all time makes his Broadway debut.
Still outfitted as the title ogre, Shrek star Brian d’Arcy James
talks shop with an admiring Angela Lansbury.
A legendary character meets a theatrical legend: Yes, we’re talking about loveable ogre Shrek and five-time Tony winner Angela Lansbury. Fresh from her award-winning run in Blithe Spirit, the divine Ms. L decided to go out on the town and catch Shrek the Musical. After the July 21 performance, Lansbury trotted backstage at the Broadway Theatre to greet the show’s trio of Tony-nominated stars—and Broadway.com captured the happy scene.
