Quotes

Lord Farquaad: [seizes a crown and puts it on] All this hocus pocus alters nothing! This marriage is binding and that makes me king. See? See? As for YOU, my wife, I'll have you locked back in that tower for the rest of your days!
Shrek: No! Actually, you won't!
[whistles. Farquaad does not notice the low growling of the dragon outside]
Lord Farquaad: What are you doing, you insolent beast? I'll see you drawn and quartered! I am king! I'll have order!
[the dragon breaks through the window and breathes fire at Farquaad, roasting him]

Not great
3 September 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

Disney managed to adapt 'The Lion King' and 'Beauty and the Beast' for stage, so it was no surprise that DreamWorks tried to do the same with 'Shrek'.

However, why the previously mentioned two Disney films worked was because they had some very good songs built into them in the first place, which for all its plaudits, 'Shrek' didn't have.

It's a decent enough stage show, but lacks the songs it needs to be great, and I didn't enjoy the changes to the story either.

Sorry, this wasn't for me.
