Hobbit Frodo treks across Middle Earth, following his quest to destroy the evil, dangerous and awesomely powerful ring that he has been given. Warchus' three-act production — first seen in Toronto — is the first stage adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's literary epic and follows the hugely successful film trilogy.
