    For the show’s cast and crew, bringing Middle Earth to the stage has been its own creative adventure.

    Change is good. Or so they say.

    Then again “they” say a lot of things and we still don’t know who “they” are.

    Why don’t “they” change that?

    Change can keep things from getting stale and can spark inspiration. In fact, I purposely break routine when I realize it has become just that: routine.
