Lord of the Rings: The Musical!
The world of entertainment is just ah-buzzing with all kinds of kiddie lit info. Recently the Toronto Star lamented that the Lord of the Rings musical is critic proof. I hadn't heard a peep about this production until yesterday and I'm still in shock. Apparently it has a stage that turns ala Les Miserables but resembles a tree of sorts. A review from Forbes Magazine states that all three of the books have been combined into a 3 1/2 hour spectacle. The best part is that the producers insist that it's not a musical... and yet everyone bursts into song. No word on whether or not Gollum gets his own "I Want" song, but my fingers remain tightly crossed.
