Lord Of The Rings nerds now have a reason to leave their mom's basement apartment, as a stage edition of author JRR Tolkien's wildly popular fantasy tale will hit West End in London. Producer Kevin Wallace told Reuters that the production, which may or may not result in dwarf tossing for press, will cost around $13 million. "It will stimulate audiences' imaginations in a way they've never felt before," he shouted through a cloud of smoke from the dark seats in the back of the legendary theater to the reporter who was being blinded by the bright lights on stage. The dorkalicious production will open in London in Spring 2005 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the publication of the complete trilogy.
