Soon, Wicked's Elphaba won't be the only emerald-hued protagonist on the boards of Broadway: Shrek the Musical will have a Seattle try-out late this summer prior to a New York debut in the fall.
Directed by Avenue Q's Jason Moore, the all-new musical will star Christopher Sieber as Lord Farquaad (two words: Perfect. Casting). No other casting has been announced at this time.
UPDATE: Shrek the Musical will open on Broadway November 8 at the Broadway Theatre, current home to The Color Purple, which is slated to close on February 24.
