Nigel Lindsay and Nigel Harman have been confirmed to star in West End production of "Shrek the Musical." Lindsay will play the title character Shrek and Harman will play the villain Lord Farquadd. Although I'm not very familar with these two actors I look foreward to seeing what they bring to these roles.
