Having filled cinemas for three years, and after topping the BBC’s favourite
book poll this weekend, JRR Tolkien’s ‘The Lord Of The Rings’ is now
destined for the West End stage. Theatre producers last week confirmed they
will stage a musical version of the novel in London in Spring 2005. Finnish
contemporary folk group Värttinä are reportedly composing the music for the
show.

    One can only hope it approaches the artistry of “Stop the Planet of the Apes – I want to get off”.

    I’m a great fan of LOTR but I can’t imagine it being a musical…

    Saw the new Musical, not like a real musical such as Momma Mia and Phantom. Special effects awsome, but like the same in the movies, more attention is given to the special effects than to the actual story line. If you haven’t seen the movie or read the book don’t go until you do, or you’ll be lost.
