Wherefore art thou, Frodo?

The reviews are in for Toronto's mega-musical "Lord of the Rings" stage production, and so far they're pretty good. Seems Peter Jackson no longer has the market cornered on elves, dwarves, and furry-footed Hobbits.

The nearly four-hour production features an original score and more than 70 actors, and is being billed as the "most ambitious theatrical production ever staged." It's also a cornerstone of Toronto's tourism push this year: The city is rolling out special hotel packages geared around the musical.


Would I head north just to see this production? You bet your One Ring I would. I'll get up there later this summer, and you can read my review right here when the time comes.
