Despite Oscar’s problems, which include careless spending, excessive gambling and a poorly kept house filled with spoiled food, he seems to enjoy life. Felix, however, seems utterly incapable of enjoying anything and only finds purpose in pointing out his own and other people’s mistakes and shortcomings. Because this proves to be extremely annoying to those around him, Oscar, his closest friend, feels compelled to throw him out, after only a brief time together. But, Oscar quickly realizes that Felix has had a positive effect on him.

Tennessee Williams won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for “A Streetcar Named Desire” in 1948 and for “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” in 1955. In addition, “The Glass Menagerie” (1945) and “The Night of the Iguana” (1961) received New York Drama Critics' Circle Awards. His 1952 play “The Rose Tattoo” (dedicated to his lover, Frank Merlo), received the Tony Award for best play.

Shrek the Musical, based on the Oscar® winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage.

In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre — not a handsome prince — shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand...and his name is Shrek.

Full of all-new songs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, Shrek the Musical is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!
