Jesters were usually the wisest members of royal courts, due to the extra brains stored in their three-pronged hats. Let a modern jokester share some of his brains with you with today's GrouponLive deal to see One Man Lord of the Rings on Saturday, June 2, at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center's Victoria Theater in Newark. Choose between the following seating options:

  • For $11, you get a seat in the balcony section (a $22 value).
  • For $17, you get a seat in the orchestra section (a $35 value).

Then choose between the 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. shows.

In just one hour, the chameleonic Charles Ross recreates the thrilling battles, daring rescues, and legendary characters of Tolkien’s page-to-screen story in a performance DC Theatre Scene called “a 'greatest hits' take on the film trilogy, and it's brilliant stuff.” With ferocious energy, spellbinding mimicry, and an elven autotuner, Ross flies his parrot-like voice over the breadth of Middle Earth to regale ears with dialogue and sound effects from the films. The multifaceted performer swoops into The Shire to execute playful exchanges between the Hobbits just as easily as he hisses through Gollum's split personality and belts out Gandalf’s booming edict, “You shall not pass!” to the fiery Balrog. Ross takes only brief pauses for respite between the three titles to sip water and take a nap in a hammock in the wings.

Charles Ross rose to acclaim in 2002 when his One Man Star Wars stole the hearts and swayed the force of space-opera fans worldwide, prompting the New York Times to urge Jedi disciples to “get out your light sabers!”

Excellent concert in a beautiful venue! Would definitely see Styx again! The group's musical talent is captivating and brought us back in time. NJPAC is definitely a venue I would return to. So classy and easy to get to.
