Will Shrek Be Dreck? So Says Needling Riedel


Riedel with Theater Talk cohost Susan Haskins

On the set of the always rousing Theater Talk, I just asked The New York Post‘s Michael Riedel what he’s most looking forward to in the upcoming Broadway season as well as what he’s least looking forward to. Riedel—who’s the most powerful man writing about the theater biz today (and not just because he says so)—approached this assignment with a wonderfuly efficient manner that saved lots of time for everyone involved. His reply: “I’m looking forward to Shrek being a big, old, awful, lousy show.” Voila! No need for the second half of the question!
