How come nobody told me there was a Lord of the Rings musical?  Probably because it (predictably) face planted.

Somewhere in there is 10 minutes of excerpts.  I don't recommend trying to watch it.


Oh, and there's an old Russian TV series! Looks more like a stage play. Laughing

Never mind the failed musical, what's this about Martin doing a stage play now, set to premiere in 2023?? Can the man finish his damn book series?!!?!?

I posted some notes on that on the SOIF thread.  It seems he's not too deeply involved in the play, though a distraction is a distraction.

Can't found where I had last posted on the Russian version of LotR (actually just Fellowship, since it was more "idealogically pure"), but here's some more background on it.
