Ogre Achiever

Shrek the Musical has its star: Tony nominated actor Brian d'Arcy James (Sweet Smell of Success) will play the title role in the new tuner, based on the Oscar winning animated hit (maybe he can get green makeup tips from Idina Menzel).

Also recently cast is Chester Gregory II (Tarzan, the current Cry-Baby) as Donkey and Avenue Qute Tony nominee John Tartaglia (who knows his puppets) as Pinocchio.

Shrek the Musical will begin previews at the Broadway Theatre on November 8 and open on December 14.

UPDATE: More cast members have been announced.
