The scaly pink puppet was meant to be a super-sized crowd-pleaser, says Jason Moore, director of the Broadway production of "Shrek The Musical," the stage version of DreamWorks Animation's hit movie . However it proved to be a super-sized distraction. "She was supposed to be endearing but ended up being kind of scary and off-putting. " Which is why the metallic behemoth, set on a rolling platform, was replaced by a large but nimbler, more engaging creature for the first national tour of "Shrek," which arrives at the Pantages Theatre on Tuesday.

Jason Moore has started only three Arena Football League games, but the rookie from San Bernardino will be the dean of the Avengers' defensive backfield this week. Damen Wheeler suffered a sprained knee ligament in last week's loss at San Jose and is expected to sit out at least two games. So Moore and Ben Kelly, who will make his Arena league debut, will be the starting defensive specialists Saturday night when the 4-3 Avengers play the expansion Austin Wranglers at Staples Center.

"Shrek, the Musical" will launch Aug. 14 to Sept. 21 at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre before its Broadway debut in November -- date, venue and cast to be announced. Based on William Steig's book and DreamWorks' first "Shrek" film, the show features book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire ("Rabbit Hole") and music by Jeanine Tesori. "I'm very pleased with how it's coming along," says "Avenue Q's" Jason Moore, who will direct. And although critics panned Disney's "The Little Mermaid" after its Broadway bow last week, Moore doesn't think animation-based fare is losing appeal.
