Critics are raving over Area Stage Company's professional production of Shrek the Musical!
Aaron Krause, writing for Miami Art Zine, writes, "A production doesn’t need a huge budget and expensive, invisible special effects to enthrall and delight. That is particularly true if the production features versatile, energetic, convincing and charming performers such as those in ASC’s minimalistic mounting [of Shrek the Musical]."
Krause concludes that "in this mounting, our ability to see human beings, as opposed to merely actors fully hidden within animal costumes, reinforces the across-the-board appeal of Shrek’s themes."
