Lord of the Rings Musical to Open in London

The Lord of the Rings MusicalThe Lord of the Rings MusicalThe famous (or is it infamous?) Lord of the Rings musical that opened earlier this year in Toronto is set to open next year in London--though it will be a somewhat reworked and cut version.

At a cost of $12.5 million pounds, it is set to be the most expensive theatre production ever to hit the London stage.

After it's lackluster critical reception, producer Kevin Wallace has decided to make some changes. "There will be a series of revisions," he said. "There is stuff we have learnt. We are breaking it down scene by scene. The writers have been doing some reworking. This will be a cut and reworked version with more music and we have edited out some of the sub-plot."

I haven't seen it yet, but hope to one day... if you have seen it, please leave a comment below letting us know what you think!
