TORONTO (CP) – The quality of Canadian actors who have auditioned for parts in the upcoming Mirvish stage presentation of Lord of the Rings has been “gratifying,” says British producer Kevin Wallace. Budgeted at a record $27 million, the ambitious theatrical extravaganza is scheduled to have its world premiere Feb. 2 at Toronto’s Princess of Wales theatre, with rehearsals set to begin this October. Eventually, the production will be headed to London’s West End. [More]
