SHREK THE MUSICAL with Martín Acuña

In This Episode

To quote listener Casey in her request for us to cover SHREK THE MUSICAL, “This show has absolutely no right being as good as it is.”

And she’s right. Even with two Pulitzer Prize winning writers behind it, you might be shocked to find how deep the psychology of “the first musical with a fart song” actually goes. This week fellow podcaster Martín Acuña joins us from Bogotá, Colombia to discuss fairy tales, animation, and what happened when they all came to Broadway in the form of a big, green ogre.
