Shrek musical tickets
Shrek musical will be held on 3/22/2011 - 4/3/2011 at Hippodrome Performing Arts Center in Baltimore, MD. Shrek is a musical with music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire. It is based on the 1990 book Shrek by William Steig as well as the 2001 DreamWorks film of the same name. After a tryout in Seattle, the original Broadway production opened in December 2008 and lasted over 12 months, closing January 2010. The First North American Tour began in July 2010, with a West End production set to open May 2011. The First North American Tour of the show began previews at the Cadillac Palace Theatre, Chicago, on July 13, 2010, and officially opened on July 25. The new production marks the debut of an all-new Dragon. On the subject, set designer Tim Hatley stated "The biggest change [will be] the dragon. It will be a different creature from the puppet/soul trio on Broadway but I think we've finally gotten it right". The tour, co-directed by Rob Ashford, also features a new opening, new songs and improved illusions, from those on Broadway. For the tour, the song sung by the Dragon on Broadway - Donkey Pot Pie - was replaced by a new song intitled Forever. The tour saw the deletion of three fairy tale creatures: Fairy Godmother, White Rabbit and Gnome. Humpty Dumpty was also scrapped and replaced by Tweetledum. The Magic Mirror was also cut. The original cast includes Eric Petersen as Shrek, Haven Burton as Princess Fiona, Alan Mingo, Jr. as Donkey, and Blakely Slaybaugh as Pinocchio. The role of Lord Farquaad was initially played by Todd Buonopane, however, on the fifth day of previews he was replaced by understudy David F.M. Vaughn, for unknown reasons. Eric Petersen, Haven Burton, and David F.M. Vaughn all understudied their respective roles in the Broadway production. View available dates and tickets for Shrek broadway musical below.
