Lewis-Evans is really enjoying working with her castmates. "It's a really chilled out group," she says. "Chester Gregory, who plays Donkey, is so great; he's just ridiculously talented and fun, and we're trying to find our own way with the story. And Brian d'Arcy James [who plays Shrek] and Sutton Foster [who plays Fiona] are neck and neck for the nicest people in show business. And our director Jason Moore is just fantastic."
The actress is also happy with her look as Dragon. "I get to be pretty glamorous -- and I have had some glamorous roles lately, like Trix in The Drowsy Chaperone," she says. "Dragon is really pretty and glittery and shiny -- and of course you'll see a lot of pink, which is fine, since my favorite color is fuschia. And I'm really happy with the make-up design, because you will be able to see Kecia through everything; Jason told us from the beginning that it was important that we all remain recognizable." It's also fitting to the show's moral, says Lewis-Evans. "One of the big themes to the story is that everyone is more than just what you see on the outside, and I think this show is a fantastic way for kids to learn that lesson."
