‘Lord of the Rings’ Closing in Toronto

June 28, 2006 at 7:53 pm by xoanon  - 

TORONTO (AP) — The mammoth stage production of “The Lord of the Rings,” which was mostly panned by critics, is closing in Toronto. Producer Kevin Wallace said Wednesday that the $24 million, 3 1/2 hour show will close Sept. 3. “We’re doing respectable but were not sold out. The scale of this show needs that,” Wallace said at a news conference. “The costs are 50 percent more than ‘The Lion King’ to run so it (the theater) must be full,” producer David Mirvish added. It was announced last week that “The Lord of the Rings,” believed to be the most expensive show ever mounted, will open in London next year – trimmed, tightened and reworked since its Toronto premiere at the Princess of Wales Theatre in March. The show’s debut met with a harsh critical reception. [More]
