MitsuMirage writes "Mirvish Productions is hosting the world opening of The Lord of the Rings musical in Toronto in March 2006. Originally planned for London, UK and to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the publication the trilogy, the musical was moved to Toronto when no theatre was available." From the article: "With a cast of 50 and elaborate staging, the audience will be "plunged into the events as they happen...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." A look is also available at the BBC. We originally mentioned the musical when it was slated to run in Britain.
