If You're Under 68 Inches Tall, You Could Be A Star
I always thought that being 5 feet, 6 3/4 inches made me normal in height or at least average or not shrimpy. But apparently I am Hobbit-size in height as well as girth. The BBC reports on open auditions for the London staging of the musical "The Lord of the Rings." ("The Ring! Such a beautiful thing! It makes me want to sing!") All the short people rejoice over getting to audition for a lead instead of the comic sidekick or the chorus. Hurrah for little people!
