A Little Bit of Broadway

Shrek the Musical

We are listening to a fairytale this afternoon – well, maybe we ought to call it an orgetale! This afternoon we are listening to Shrek the Musical, the 2008 Broadway musical based on the 2001 animated film. All Shrek wants is his swamp back, with no blue birds, puppets, fairy godmothers, blind mice, etc…. He goes to confront the Lord who is banishing all the fairytale creatures into his swamp, and is promised relief, if he only does one little favor…..

We are listening to the original cast recording his afternoon..
