Lord of the Rings Theatre show is awesome!

To be honest I wasn't expecting great things but I was quickly proven wrong. Feel free to ask questions!

Glad you enjoyed the show! .I've heard it's really long. Is that true?

I'm trying to find something to do for my husband's 40th birthday on Saturday. He's never been to a play and I'm not sure if he'd enjoy this as his first experience. He's pretty open minded. He loves jazz, steel drums and other music. What do you think???

I understand that the preview peformances were longer than the regular run performances. I'm not sure how much time they have managed to cut but I believe it is significant.

Travler521: If your husband enjoyed the books or the movies he truly would be wowed by this experience. Toronto is the ONLY place in the world that is offering this show. A male friend and his 10 year son saw the show a few days ago and they also loved the experience!

Now that the preview is over, has anyone been and how long is it. I have tickets for a 1 pm performance and think it would be cheaper to take a train home than pay for a hotel in downtown Toronto. The last train leaves Toronto at 5:40 pm.
