'SHREK' Celebrates 100 'Swampy' Shows Tonight!

The Wednesday, March 11th evening performance of Shrek The Musical marked the 100th performance of the new show on Broadway. Tonight, the cast will celebrate the milestone on stage at the Broadway Theatre. Shrek The Musical opened on Sunday, December 14, 2008.

The original Broadway cast album for Shrek The Musical will be released by Decca Broadway on March 24th. Next week, Sirius XM radio will premiere the album with a series of cast and creative team interviews, also playing songs off the new recording.

Shrek The Musical stars Tony Award® nominee Brian d'Arcy James as Shrek, Tony Award® winner Sutton Foster as Princess Fiona, Tony Award® nominee Christopher Sieber as Lord Farquaad, Tony Award® nominee Daniel Breaker as Donkey and Tony Award® nominee John Tartaglia as Pinocchio.

Shrek The Musical is an entirely new musical based on the story and characters from William Steig's book Shrek!, as well as the Dreamworks Animation film Shrek, the first chapter of the Shrek movie series.

Shrek The Musical tells the story of a swamp-dwelling ogre who goes on a life-changing adventure to reclaim the deed to his land. Joined by a wise-cracking donkey, this unlikely hero fights a fearsome dragon, rescues a feisty princess and learns that real friendship and true love aren't only found in fairy tales.

Shrek The Musical features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize® winner, David Lindsay-Abaire, music by Olivier Award-winner Jeanine Tesori, and is directed by Tony Award® nominee Jason Moore.
