I'm new to ATL and this was my first play at the Fox - PS Beautiful facility. However, if you attend this event or any other event at the FOX, avoid the side doors that the ushers have open. I thought the door would lead me to steps inside the building,instead, the doors lead you outside to the sides of the building. Once outside, then you have to walk about 1.5 blocks to get to the front of the Fox again. Also, no restrooms when you go out this way. What's the point of paying $25 to park across the street from the FOX when the ushers send you to exits at the back/side of the building. Definitely not fair to seniors who paid to park closer so they wouldn't have to walk this distance or maneuver the steep steps. Luckily it had stopped raining when the play ended. Definitely the walk would be worse in the rain or winter.

I am a regular theater goer and left at intermission, it was that bad. The normally not-so-great acoustics at the Fox were the worse I have ever experienced. The children in the audience were very poorly behaved and the parents did nothing to...continued

I thought the show was amazing! The songs were great and the singing was excellent as well. I loved the sets and costumes. Overall, it was superb and I'd definitely go see it again!
I probably wouldn't recommend it for children under 10 as a lot...continued

Read a review of the Broadway production in The New York Times.


Shrek the Musical, based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to life 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 villain 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.

Featuring a terrific score of 19 all-new songs, big laughs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery,_ Shrek the Musical_ is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!
