We love the Wheelock Theatre. In this play, the language was difficult for 6yo's, but we had a good time anyway. A three star experience.

Fine for the kids who don't already know the characters well, but for adults who do and love them, it's hard to see Bilbo played as haughty and too sure of himself and Gandalf as decrepit and sort of bumbling.

Good Smaug.

The problem with the Hobbit is that it is only appropriate for children who are 8-12 years old. It is too scary for anyone under eight and too corny for anyone over 12.
