Show Review: The Lord of the Rings 
Saturday, May 6, 2006, 11:35 AM - Review

A spectacle it is, indeed.

The Lord of the Rings "musical" puts the 3 movies on stage with music and dance. Think of it as the real-life Cliffs Notes version of The Lord of the Rings.

The moving stage (I can see a lot of theatres using similar stages in the future), lights and surroundings set the emotional mode, but the rest of show wasn't the spectacle the hype makes it to be.

Barring a few technical glitches (lights and flames not working, audio too loud, music obscuring audio), Lord of the Rings fans and lovers of musical theatre shows will like this show; everyone else should save their money and see the movies instead.

Ps: Don't get the seats by the edge of the balcony seating as there is a railing there that will block your view.

Overall: 3 of 5.

Reviews: The Globe And Mail, The New York Times, CBC, SpaceCast.
