There is a Lord of the Rings Broadway Musical

For the sake of the cast and crew, who undoubtedly poured heart and soul into this, I want to like it–but, well, it’s a Lord of the Rings Broadway Musical. I… just can’t go there.

On the bright side, it’s not a Lord of the Ringos Beatles movie–with the Fab Four as the four hobbits–one of the great Averted Catastrophes of History.

    Oh, I can just picture it – Gandalf going full-Valjean bellowing out some variation of ‘Bring Him Home’, a chorus line of elves doing a big ‘Welcome to Rivendell’ number, Aragorn and Arwen having a soupy duet a la ‘There’s a place for us – Gondor’s a place for us…’ Heck, I could script the whole thing out. What could possibly go wrong?

    Hollywood is also supposedly developing a biopic on J.R.R. Tolkien, which makes me wonder if there really is someone in Hollywood that is bound and determined to give Christopher Tolkien an aneurysm of pure rage.
