The Neil Diamond-penned song "I'm a Believer" will be added into the Broadway production of Shrek the Musical, at the Broadway Theatre, beginning with the October 2 performance.

The tune was originally recorded by the The Monkees in 1966, and was performed by the band Smash Mouth and actor Eddie Murphy on the soundtrack for the first Shrek film in 2001. An instrumental version of the song has played as exit music, following performances of the Broadway musical, but will now be sung by the entire company.

The musical currently stars Brian d'Arcy James as Shrek, Sutton Foster as Princess Fiona, Christopher Sieber as Lord Farquaad, Daniel Breaker as Donkey, and Robb Sapp as Pinocchio.

The cast also features Cameron Adams, Tessa Albertson, Rozi Baker, Haven Burton, Bobby Daye, Ryan Duncan, Sarah Jane Everman, Maya Goldman, Justin Greer, Colleen Hawks, Lisa Ho, Chris Hoch, Marty Lawson, Jacob Ming-Trent, Carolyn Ockert-Haythe, Denny Paschall, Keven Quillon, Noah Rivera, Heather Jane Rolff, Jennifer Simard, Rachel Stern, Dennis Stowe, David F.M. Vaughn, Maia Nkenge Wilson, Ryan Worsing, and Kirsten Wyatt.
