An ass stole the show tonight at the Music Hall’s production of Shrek The Musical.
Shrek might be the title character, but his noble steed, Donkey, won this Midwestern audience over with his sultry voice, dancing hooves and adult humor. Proving Kansas City to be just a little too sophisticated for repetitive fart jokes. But even with Shrek left in the wind – so to speak – the show still managed to shine.
The Internet claimed an eight o’clock show time, but the production began at 7:30 p.m.
The Internet claimed an eight o’clock show time Wednesday, but the production began at 7:30 p.m.
Tonight’s show starts at 7:30 again. Friday and Saturday evening performances are at 8 p.m.with matinees at 2 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday. Sunday evening’s performance is at 6:30 p.m.
For those of you who missed the first thirty minutes Wednesday, you didn’t miss that much; a pair of big fat boxers, three guys dressed up as pigs and a song claiming that, ‘things aren’t easy when you’re ugly’ (true that). This show has what every successful fairy tale needs; oversized costumes, confetti, tapping mice, a talking donkey, a flying princess, farts, exploding birds, love and a happily ever after.
Like the show says, ‘Let your freak flag fly!
Shrek The Musical runs through January 16th at the Music Hall. Get tickets for the whole family, because this show truly has something for everybody.
Hey, I’m a believer.
