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. ￼
