Official Details For SHREK: THE MUSICAL DVD/Blu-ray, Out 10/15
Musical theatre's favorite green ogre finally arives on Blu-ray and DVD byway of SHREK: THE MUSICAL as filmed in its original Broadway iteration, out on October 15.
Starring Brian D'arcy James, Sutton Foster, Christopher Sieber, Daniel Breaker and John Tartaglia, SHREK: THE MUSICAL features a score by Jeanine Tesori and a book by David Lindsay-Abaire, with direction by Jason Moore, based on the hit 2001 DreamWorks film and 1990 Willam Steig book of the same name.

This recording preserves the original presentation of the musical as seen on Broadway.
