Lord of the Rings.... the musical?!
I have just heard about the most... unlikely musical ever:  Lord of the Rings: the Musical.

What?!  It took Peter Jackson (a fellow PJ) near 8 hours (approx.) of DVD to do justice to the film and I don't know many people who would sit and watch that all in one go.

Somehow this musical has been edited down from almost 4 hours down to 3!

This has got to be a pretty adventurous production.

The news report I read had the title Director visits Tolkien's grave to get approval.  I kid you not; the director (I think) knows he's probably upsetting Tolkein as he went to "to seek the author's posthumous blessing for staging the cult classic -- and he apologised in case the writer disapproved."

I would certainly be turning in my grave if my work of complex and dark genius had been given the musical makeover.

"As actors playing deadly orcs skipped, bounded and somersaulted across London's historic Theatre Royal Drury Lane" - fearsome he?  I bet they wear tights as well.

"The trouble in Toronto was that we were getting too much of the story on stage."  I somehow get the idea the finished result really isn't going to resemble much of the Lord of the Rings except for the characters. 

The idea of an all singing all dancing army of orcs is something best left alone... or give to the Goodies to make a great show out of.   

Whatever will be thought of next?  Star Trek the Musical sounds good...?  No takers on that one?  I'll go back to my work then.

Mood - snow snow snowity consider me wishing it would snow
