Broadways Best
Ever since I saw Shrek -even though it was last year- and when I did the show a few weeks ago, I 've wondered how Fiona turns into an ogre so quickly without even changing actresses. Here's a video of one of her transformation scenes.
This video is of the London version. They do it totally different on Broadway.  She tries to run out of the wedding and after running behind a fence on the side of the stage she runs back out pushed by fairy tale creatures. When I see a show I usually concentrate on what is really happening onstage. I noticed that Fiona must have become green during the second she was behind the fence. She then turns to the wall to hide her secret. Then turning to reveal that she is now green she also reveals the secret she has tried to hide for so long to the many at that wedding.

Think you know how she does it? Tell me in a comment to this post.
