Rings Cycles On

The sprawling stage spectacular based on J.R.R. Tolkien's epic The Lord of the Rings trilogy will play its final performance tonight in London.

The big budget theatrical experience -- which combines state-of-the-art stagecraft, music and the classic tale of Frodo, Gandalf, et al -- made its world premiere in Toronto two years ago. Plans are now underway for a German production as well as an international tour through New Zealand (where the Oscar winning movies were filmed), Australia and the Far East. Unfortunately, there are no plans at this time to bring it to the United States.

Here's a video preview of the show from before it came to London; the original cast recordingis also available.
