Theatre News: Shrek, Les Mis, Sister Act, and the Young Vic

Here (a day late) is Thursday's Theatre News from the Visit London blog.

Hopefully, I'll be able to write more fully about yesterday's Young Vic 40th Anniversary Season launch over the weekend.

As with most things at the Young Vic, I found it really inspiring and interesting. I do love listening to David Lan talk, even when he's in front of a reasonably big audience, as he was yesterday morning.

Anyhoo, here's the rest of this week in theatre terms:
It's a long way off, but everyone's favourite green ogre will make his West End debut next summer.

Shrek The Musical opens at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in June 2011, and is a stage version of the familiar film, with an original score by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire. You could pair this show with a matinee of Wicked, and have a green-themed day in the West End!
