ive said it before and ill say it again: shows like shrek the musical and spongebob the musical opened the doors for more kids to be interested in a form of media that isnt usually directed towards them. the sets are stunning and versatile, the costumes are unique and inventive, and there isnt a single song that feels out of place or unnecessary. the choreography is fun yet you can tell that there is so much effort there. the actors get so much crap for being in the shows even though a lot of time and dedication was put into preparing the show and the actors love(d) their roles and working on the show. plus, children get to see their favorite characters brought to life in a completely different way. many people thought both shows were going to be awful and get no support but they really shined and showed so much brilliance and creativity with storytelling. shrek and spongebob are good shows and you guys just wont admit it.
