TORONTO (Reuters) – The “Lord of the Rings” musical, touted as the most expensive stage production yet, met mixed reviews on Friday as critics applauded its leaping orcs and menacing dark riders, but got lost in the tangled plots of Middle Earth.

For all the feverish activity at Toronto’s Princess of Wales Theatre, the show based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic trilogy drew only one standing ovation in more than three hours, but many in the audience called it breathtaking and spectacular. [More]
