Can I just not preorder it and go back to pretending I never had to sit through it in the first place?

I might have to get the blu-ray combo pack, but I think I'll just wait until people are selling it used for a dollar.

Interesting Dreamworks has yet to release any official information / press release on this..

Could it be....just maybe...that they will be bringing in SHREK to the Marquis Theatre Nov-Jan?

The tour just ended 3 months ago, so the set and costumes are in storage.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

Unless NETworks has already sold off the physical production (since they had taken over the tour when it went non-Equity). I'm not sure how long they bother to hang on to stuff once they no longer plan on sending a show back out.

^Sometimes they keep it. They rent out the sets and costumes for several of their past tours.

Yep, instead of throwing the sets out, NETworks is renting them. Shrek is a hot property (as expected) among middle schools..

Would it have have killed them to use Brian's Shrek for the cover rather than the computer generated one?

Yes, because when this hits the shelves in places like Longview, TX and Huntsville, TX's Wal-Mart more people will buy it because they recognize the cartoon character. They will pick it up without really looking into what the product is. They'll purchase on the impulse of familiarity.

I'm not sure if this is their final artwork, but if it is, the second Broadway artwork/touring artwork could have been much better. It looks half animated and is wonderful for recognition.

This is the theatre production? I'm taking my son to see it in the fall in our home city.

Yes, it is the Broadway production as filmed October 2009 in front of live audience.

Sounds really cool. We're not going until October, so if my son likes it, will definitely pick up the DVD.

It says Shrek is big bold letters. It's not even like Shrek on stage wore different clothes.

If they couldn't figure out Shrek from the title & this


Then they've got some bigger issues.

The whole cast had a special photoshoot day for the DVD back in 2009, so I'd be surprised if that's their final artwork.

For the artwork, I think it'd look sleeker and nicer if they used a variation of the artwork on the cast album.

I wouldn't complain if they used the artwork on the cast recording, but only if they fix the godawful photoshop job on Donkey's leg. Look at it when it's not covered by the logo:

^ Ha! I never noticed that.

I honestly would like new artwork for it. IMO, they all look plastic on that one. Especially Farqaaud.

It looks like Donkey has his leg raised and somewhat bent.

TheatreFan4, I agree. However, I invite you to visit sub-suburban America and rural America. You'll be shocked.

Dreamworks&Fox presented the DVD release at the BlogHer 2013 conference, and it looks like this is the final artwork. The Blu Ray package comes with a little program book and stickers (the Blu-Ray pack itself is different with the characters present).
