Nigel Harman directing Tour of Shrek the Musical

West End star and ex EastEnders bad boy Nigel Harman is directing the tour of Shrek the Musical which kicks off at Leeds Grand next July.  Booking opens at 10:00 am this morning.

Nigel has plenty of experience with this musical having appeared as the vertically challenged and dim-witted Lord Farquaad when Shrek opened in London's West End.

He is also due to appear in the new X Factor Musical I  Can't Sing as the Simon Cowell character at the London Palladium  next February.

Nigel Harman who won a an Olivier Award for his portrayal of Lord Farquaad said: I am delighted to be returning to Shrek as its director. This show is very special to me with its dizzying blend of great characters, a hilarious script and sublime music. This production is visually stunning, and the story has the magic ingredient of moving at great pace while still being surprisingly intimate. In short, there was no way I was going to say no to the challenge of realising the production for the UK and Ireland.  I really can't wait to take this show on the road!
