      News of interest from www.scifi.com:

      Musical Rings Takes The Stage

      The curtain rises Feb. 4 on the multimillion-dollar stage musical
      version of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings in Toronto, the
      Reuters news service reported.

      The production will align theater and a range of musical traditions,
      including work by Finnish group Varttina and Indian composer A.R.
      Rahman, to deliver a retelling of Tolkien's fantasy classic, producer
      Kevin Wallace told Reuters.

      Previews begin on Saturday at Toronto's Princess of Wales Theater,
      ahead of a March 23 world premiere. The show boasts a 55-strong cast
      and three acts and will run more than three hours.

      It is hoped the show will go to London next and then, if the musical
      proves to be a hit, to Broadway.
