Based on the Oscar-winning animated movie, Shrek the Musical brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to life on stage. Shrek just wants to be left alone in his beautiful swamp, but exiled fairy tale characters keep showing up on his doorstep. Finally, he agrees to confront the diminutive yet ruthless Lord Farquaad and hopefully regain his privacy. Joined by a wise-cracking donkey, Shrek embarks on a life-changing adventure as an unlikely hero who fights a fearsome dragon and rescues the cursed Princess Fiona. He not only saves the day, but also discovers the value of friendship and realizes that true love is more than skin deep. Along with the show, enjoy a buffet dinner with a variety of choices, including meats carved to order, spicy shrimp, chicken pot pie, mac 'n' cheese and much more, plus a salad bar, desserts and drinks.

This was my first time seeing a show at this venue and a production by this Baltimore-based theater company. Both delivered!
As for the venue, the Theater Project is a fantastic space (which I would never have known from the outside) located within walking distance to/from some of the City's best restaurants, coffee shops, and bars.
As for the show itself, Iron Crow packed a lot of drama and (dark) comedy into the play's approx. 70 min. running time. (A nice length, BTW). In that period, each of the cast members - who displayed nice chemistry amongst one another - managed to lovingly capture the myriad of emotions that one might feel when losing someone and, for me, drive home one of the important points of the play: one may truly never (ever) really know someone.
Incidentally, the play is not about the military so don't let the title fool you. And, while the emotional center of the play is (presumably) gay, the points of the play are universal ... and timeless.
I will definitely be back to the Theatre Project and I look forward to future productions of the Iron Crow.
Quotes & Highlights
“David’s dancing spirit refuses to die. That spirit rises up in the final imagery of Iron Crow Theatre’s production — imagery beautifully staged by director Steven J. Satta-Fleming and set to an original song by Michael Perrie. The Soldier Dreams may be about coping with loss and grief, but this poignant production leaves no doubt that it is also about celebrating life.” -WYPR
“…beautiful, sad, hilarious, heartwarming offering that Iron Crow Theatre doesn’t just produce but conquers.” -Broadwayworld.com
