"Shrek the Musical" is coming to the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood July 12-31, and CC is already "ogre"-ly excited. (Sorry, couldn't resist!)
Based on the characters from William Steig's book "Shrek!" and the original DreamWorks film, the musical also tells the story of a grumpy ogre, his chatty sidekick Donkey, and his heroic journey to rescue a sassy princess with a secret. This time, though, there are 19 new songs and a Broadway pedigree to boot.
While tickets range from $25-$90 at BroadwayLA.org, there's an amazing deal going on right now for social-media fans who blog, tweet or Facebook (yes, I used that last one as a verb) -- or all three.
"Shrek" producers are setting up a "Social Swamp" for one night only, at the Tuesday, July 12 performance (7:30 p.m.), where audiences in that section can tweet or post mid-performance. The best part? Tickets for the "Social Swamp" section are only $15!
Here's what you need to do: Visit www.BroadwayLA.org/MyFriends, and then use the promo code SWAMP.
Enjoy, and let me know what you think!
