There's an actor in town doing a one man Lord of the Rings show. He's already famous for his one man Star Wars show. Check out his site http://www.onemanstarwars.com/one_man_star_wars1.html and watch the 5 minute demo of the one man Star Wars Trilogy. This guy's hilarious.
He performed his show last week on Granville Island and Ian McKellen (Gandalf from the movie) was in the audience. Apparently he really enjoyed it. I'm going to check it out next weekend.
