Our favorite green ogre, who can be seen belting out songs on stage, can now be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. On October 15, 2013, Shrek the Musical
came out on DVD and Blu-ray so you can pick it up just in time for the gift giving season. I had heard great things about the musical but had never had a chance to see it in person. When I had the chance to review it, I was over-joyed because I am a HUGE (ogre pun intended) fan of musicals. Shrek The Musical did not disappoint.
I found myself watching it quite a few times and singing along with the songs as I learned them. Even my kids sat and watched it with me….my daughter I expected, my boys I didn’t but they have all loved Shrek The Musical
Shrek The Musical
