‘Lord of Rings’ in Canada premiere
A much-anticipated stage musical based on ‘The Lord of the Rings’ will have its world premiere in Toronto next year. The Cdn$27 million (U.S. $22 million) show will open in March 2006 at the Princess of Wales Theatre with a largely Canadian cast…”We have not attempted to pull the novel towards the standard conventions of Musical Theatre, but rather to expand those conventions so that they will accommodate Tolkien’s material.”
Meh. The Simpsons did it with Stop the Planet of the Apes, I Want To Get Off!
