We had such a great time at Shrek! We brought our two sons (13 and 10) and they both loved it. Donkey was an especially big hit with my 10-year-old. The production value is extremely high with amazing sets, costumes, and makeup. And the cast...continued

Great theater - not a bad seat in the house. Sometimes difficult to hear performers over orchestra. My 9 year old felt it was a bit long but enjoyed it overall.

Listless, un-energetic performances (except for Fiona & Dragon Lady singer, and to some degree donkey). Mics not loud enough, lyrics mostly drowned out. Band is not too loud; mics were too soft. The RCA has the worst acoustics of any theatre in...continued

Parking was super easy on a nearby street and the lot was only $3. Folks at the box office were very friendly as was the ushering staff. Be aware that restaurants in the area are PACKED until at least show time. It was difficult to find food at 1...continued

Actors and actresses were wonderful and I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the production. Voices were fantastic and band much better than I've seen from previous productions at this theater.

To start on a positive note, I like the central message of the story and overall the show is cute and seems to be geared primarily toward young children. The woman voicing the Dragon had an amazing voice, Fiona was excellent, and Lord Farquaad was...continued

All the great staging, voices, dancing could not hide the blatant underlying message of this musical. I resent the author & director of this musical propagandizing a young vulnerable audience with the unproven theories that 1) a two parent...continued
