Lord of the Rings Loses London Audience

Producers of The Lord of the Rings: The Musical (2007, London) have announced that this July 19 will be the last show in what will be a thirteen-month run for the over-the-top production.

When it originally opened in Toronto in 2006, The Lord of the Rings didn't last six months.

Actors James Loye (Frodo), Peter Howe (Sam) and Michael Therriault (Gollum) reprised their roles in the revival.

According to the CBC, "Talks are currently underway to tour the complex fantasy epic in New Zealand, Australia, and Asia next year, as well as possibly re-open a production in Germany".

Will Therriault return to Canada, or follow the big show that couldn't?
