Tolkien descendant praises musical ‘Rings’

March 26, 2006 at 9:31 pm by xoanon  - 

TORONTO — Though theater critics were tepid in their reviews of the stage version of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings,” the granddaughter of the legendary English author praised it for staying true to his classic tale. In town Thursday night for the lavish world premiere at the Princess of Wales Theatre, Rachel Tolkien said she admired the opulent sets and Finnish music, and felt the 3 1/2-hour spectacle was a lovely retelling of her grandfather’s Middle-earth saga. “The set is incredible, the costumes are beautiful,” said Tolkien, 35. “The Hobbit” was first read to her when she was 6. “Everything to me that is the most important, and the most moving in the book, they’ve gotten on the stage. I think it’s an amazing feat to have made ‘The Lord of the Rings’ in 3½ hours.” [More]
