Shreklesque

Dreamworks’ 2001 animated film Shrek has seen many iterations, in both arts...

🤣

What. A. Show. I was thrilled to have gotten tickets for the show just before they sold out. Stand out moments to me where VERY easy to find. I thoroughly enjoyed the attention to detail of Tugboat Tiffy’s outfit as the Gingerbread Man. It was next level. The addition of so many interstate performers made this show feel so fresh and special. Rainbow from the ACT was a welcome addition and her entrance set the tone for the whole show. Trigger Happy and DeeDee Luscious played up their romance and also had the audience in awe. Another stand out was the scene between BeBe Gunn and Henny Spaghetti as Donkey and Dragon - I have simply not laughed that hard for years.

A stand out cast and I sincerely hope we are able to see again for Shreklesque 2.

I have seen a lot of burlesque shows. I enjoy both classic and parody but usually parody is just really making you laugh at something that looks bizarre. I went to the last sold out performance of Shreklesque and there were two things that made it stand out for me. Firstly, as there was no MC between acts - the dubbed dialogue made the show flow a lot better and kept the momentum up as the audience could relate to the scenes from the movies. Secondly, the inclusion of an obviously multi talented opera singer was phenomenal. This person played the role of Fairy God Mother - and I couldn't believe the impact she had on the characters around her and the audience . Her performance made the whole production jump to "the Next Level" This is not to say that Shrek, Dragon etc were not outstanding - as they were but Shreklesque has managed to stand out and get burlesque parody to 'grow up' just by the introduction of this one performer.

The best fringe show I've seen! If you've got tickets to closing night you're lucky because this is one show you'll be sad to miss!
