The premise follows the original movie incarnation with HILARIOUS performances from the entire cast featuring all your favourite characters from Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, Pinocchio, Lord Farquaad and even the Ginger bread man all coming to live in this hilarious and stunning production.
As this is the Broadway show it isa little different than the London version. It features different elaborate sets, slight alterations to songs and a few extra songs. The cast are a force to be reckoned with and there is not one weak link in the cast. The wonderful Brian D'Arcy and Sutton Foster lead this production.
This is a must see for Shrek and musical fans!
The camera work, the sound, the production, the editing, and not forgetting the performances themselves are all outstanding. There's none of those often awkward random shots of the audience, until the very end, allowing you to become completely lost in the show for the entire two hour run.
If you've seen the Broadway version of this show then you know what to expect as that is what was filmed over several live performances with an audience, and a special one without to allow cameras to more more freely about the theatre. Not a single moment of the lavish production is missed, with a delightful mixture of wide shots, and close ups.
However if you saw the badly miss-cast, cut down - they removed "Build a Wall": Why? - UK version of the show then you are in for an even bigger treat as Brian D'Arcy James, Sutton Foster, Christopher Sieber and the rest of the cast not only bring their roles to live, as fully form characters without having to resort to cheep laughs, with voices that have the incredible power and yet can still be touching.
The only possible down side I could find to this disc would be the slightly rough (too loud vocals) sound during the encore "I'm a Believer" which whilst not that bad, did come as something of a surprise after the wonderful full pounding stereo of the rest of the show were you can actually tell where the actors are on stage just from where their voice is coming from.
So, in case you haven't guessed already, I just couldn't recommend this any higher.
SPOILER ALERT! Of course he will.
Too extravagant for its own good? (This production never recouped the money it spent.) Versions since have been less ambitious and some would claim better. Perhaps certain aspects here worked better on the stage than disc. Scenes involving the fairystory characters often became cluttered, it not clear who some of them were meant to be. That dragon particularly needed a rethink.
Nevertheless there is much to enjoy - the show inventively presented, with four hilarious central performances. Occasionally gross? You bet! Children are likely to shriek with glee everytime Shrek's chatty donkey companion indicates yet again the giant has broken wind.
Arguably the best sections involve characters rather than spectacle. Working perfectly is that overheard misunderstanding (very moving too). Favourite sequence? For me it was the opening to Act 2, spirited Princess Fiona trillingly greeting the new morn, a nearby nesting bird reacting most unexpectedly.
Perhaps best regarded as a glorious antidote to traditional pantomimes - characters all splendidly over the top, the humour robust.
An important message too: do not judge by appearances.
