It's a quick read and it says everything I probably didn't, and I agree 100% with what the reviewer says. In short, it says that the original poor reviews probably reflected the show as it started out, but that now that it's had time to shake down (especially with all the complexity of the staging), the reviewer is seeing a great musical. I especially agree with the last line, that says that any LOTR fan who can get to Toronto should see it! *G*
Here's the link: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06190/703892-325.stm It includes one photo of the incredible stage being used during the battle of Helm's Deep. Imagine those parts of the stage constantly moving... it really adds to the feeling of a real battle.
