Do you know the Muffin Man? || Shrek the Musical Review

Shrek the Musical, based on the 2001 Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film tells the tale of a Scottish Green Ogre who, along with his noble steed, is challenged by Lord Farquaad to rescue a princess from a dragon-guarded tower. Seems pretty simple right?

With my beloved Mulberry ‘Del Ray’ back in it’s dust bag I needed to fill the void… I needed a luxurious leather changing bag that was practical, feminine and would look good draped over my arm…
