Is there life after “Shrek“?

Sure.  Just ask Adam Riegler.

The Westport youngster — with the twin roles of Young Shrek and Dwarf in the belching-green-ogre musical — is set to play Pugsley in the new Broadway musical “The Addams Family.”

Though he’s already on Broadway, this is the real big time.  Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth will play Gomez and Morticia Addams.  The show revolves around the couple’s daughter, Wednesday — now 18 — and her family’s adjustment to her coming of age.

Previews begin next March.  The show officially opens the following month.

In addition to “Shrek,” Adam’s credits include off-Broadway shows; “A Christmas Carol” at the Westport Country Playhouse, and the film “Cubby Bernstein:  Tony Campaign Manager.”
