Lord of the Rings: The Musical

Frodo is poised for a revival -- a stage revival. Reuters says a "Lord of the Rings" musical will debut in Toronto in March 2006.

Show producers appear to understand the technological limitations of the theater. "We are ultimately dependent on 50 actors and musicians to tell the story rather than technology," says producer Kevin Wallace. Presumably, the Battle of Helm's Deep will be slightly less grandiose than its film progenitor.

And let's not forget the music. "There will be no singing and dancing Hobbits," says Wallace. "The music will be in a very traditional mold and draw on ethnic traditions."

Uh, who's ethnic traditions? Hobbits'? Orcs'? Gollum's? Wallace doesn't say. -- Mac
