This re-creation of Orson Welles' production of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds will feature live music and Foley artists as it celebrates the golden age of American radio. It also coincides with the 75th anniversary of the original broadcast, infamous for convincing people that Martians were invading.
Great stories onstage with honesty and simplicity.
