Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Shrek the Musical (Blu-ray / DVD + DigitalHD) (Blu-ray)
We saw this show 3 times on Broadway with the original cast.... Then saw "highlights" with some of the cast at 106.7 WLTW's Broadway in Bryant Park. This video brought back memories for my family and was a hit with my son (who remembered most of the lyrics). While little beats the real/live Broadway experience, this really captured the fantastic performances by the troupe. I still love how Christopher Sieber managed his performance entirely on his knees. While I could go on and on about Brian and Sutton's performance---- I think John Tartaglia was so good as Pinnochio (as well as the Mirror and his assorted other puppetry). Lots of energy by the entire cast
Technically, they captured the sound and image as accurately as they could with an actual live production. While a few shots showed an audience...I couldn't imagine what the experience might have been watching the show while they were filming as there were plenty of on stage shots with steadicams, cranes, and other rigging.
Was well worth the purchase to keep this short run on Broadway musical alive in my family--- It was a very special time for my family back in 2008-09 when it had it's run. Glad I bought it!
