What do you all think of the new LOTR musical opening soon in the UK

Anyone going to see it, not sure myself. It will be in London too far for me to go.

I really don't know what it's like. But I think few hours is too little to show all the essential stuff.

From bbc.co.uk:


Quote:
Rings musical halted by accident 

The show has a cast of 50 actors and acrobats
Performances of the London stage version of the Lord of the Rings have been suspended after a cast member was injured during the show.
One of the actors is believed to have caught his leg in the moving stage during an early scene.

The individual was not one of the lead actors, but the show was halted and the audience offered refunds. Performances are due to resume on Saturday.

The 8m musical is currently previewing and officially opens on 19 June.

The set involves a large hydraulic stage which can revolve, and be raised or lowered in sections.

Screaming

Audience member Tori Lowe said: "The hobbits were on stage and had a group of dancers dressed as rangers with them.

"There was suddenly a lot of screaming, but at first we thought it might be part of the show.

"But a stagehand came runnning on, and when the music stopped we could hear someone shouting 'My leg! My leg!'."

In a statement, the producers said they were "looking at modifying the staging" so previews could resume.

The three-hour production, at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, has a cast of 50 actors and acrobats.

It has undergone a major rewrite since closing just six months after its premiere in Toronto last year.

I hope the leg will heal soon.

I would love to see it, but London is a little too far for me!
I wonder if Peter Jackson or any of the cast are going to see it?

I want to see this so badly.  Unfortunately I am in the US so they do not have it here .  I try to make an LOTR musical but sitting on the couch watching black riders go by to Metallica just isn't doing it.
Please let us know how it is.

Also slightly unrelated but here we have a "Wedding Singer" musical.  Not related at all but just another movie I am obsessed with and have missed the musical.

There are many clips from the stage musical available on Youtube.  It's not the same Em, but you get the general idea!
