Trivia

During the beginning song, "Big Bright Beautiful World," as young Shrek is traveling to his new home, there is a family of royals, leading a young redhead, Princess Fiona, who waves at young Shrek.
At the end of "What's Up Duloc," the riff Sieber sings is actually from Defying Gravity, a song in Wicked.
The film Shrek was made to poke fun at the Disney empire. The Broadway incarnation contines the tradition with references to a slew of other musicals, including Wicked, Chicago, The Lion King, Gypsy, Les Miserables, Once Upon a Mattress, RENT, and Dreamgirls.
During "Story of My Life", Mama Bear sings "Mama's in the mud, Mama's in distress." A reference to the song from "Gypsy", "Roses Turn."
