Preview: Shrek the Musical at Music Circus
What are you doing in my swamp? Oh, just hanging out? OK, cool, make yourself at home. There’s snacks in the fridge and the bathroom is just down the hall … no, not really! There might be snacks at Music Circus, though, which is kicking off the summer season with Shrek the Musical. Based on the animated film, the show features music composed by Jeanine Tesori, with book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire. Jacob Keith Watson stars as the titular anti-hero tasked with rescuing Princess Fiona (Kristen Beth Williams) in order to get his swamp back. Tue 6/11, 7:30pm; Through 6/16; $40-$83; Music Circus at Wells Fargo Pavilion, 1419 H Street; (916) 557-1999; broadwaysacramento.com.
