Shrek the Musical Critics' Reviews

"Shrek the Musical is sweet, big and extremely lovable."

Review by Linda Winer from Newsday

"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."

Review by David Rooney from Variety

"The most ingeniously wacky, transcendently tasteless Broadway musical since The Producers. Altogether irresistible!"

Review by Elysa Gardner from USA Today

"Every fairy tale needs a fab far, far away, and the lavish sets and costumes by Tim Hatley take you there in suitably cartoonish, Technicolor style."

Review by Joe Dziemianowicz from The New York Daily News
