Forty characters. Three masterworks. One man. Performer Charles Ross recreates the world of J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth with nothing more than elbow pads and his imagination in his latest spellbinding creation, The One-Man Lord of the Rings. Journey through Tolkien's masterpieces The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King in one hour of unbelievable kinetic entertainment. Booming special effects, riveting stage fights, and harrowing rescues he does it all in this hilarious, epic one-man show.
It's a loving comical take on Tolkien's fantasy created with a true geek's slavish attention to detail. A self-proclaimed "professional geek," Ross began performing his act in 2002 and he has now performed One-Man Lord of The Rings over 1,200 times in more than 180 cities across four continents.
Sanctioned by the Tolkien heirs, who granted Ross license to use Tolkien elements in creating his masterpiece, One-Man Lord of the Rings has been a hit with audiences and critics since he began touring it in 2004.
This summer one of the hottest tickets in town will be Charles Ross’ comedic, One-Man Lord of the Rings, at the San Jose Rep from July 24 through July 29
