With the creation of Shrek, Dreamworks boldly turned the peculiar tradition of Fairy Tales on its illogical head. It begins when a young ogre’s lonely swamp is infested with banished Fairy Tale misfits. Soon enough the ogre, Shrek, originally seeking only his own interests, finds himself on a hero’s journey (with a wisecracking donkey) and saves a princess from the corrupt Lord Farquaad. With a sophisticated score written by some of the best Broadway veterans, this quest takes us on a wild journey in which isolated characters suffering from self-loathing grow into leaders who let their freak flags fly and are accepted for who they are!
