Fake Radio

Old-Time-Radio. Just Funnier.

The War of the Worlds, with guest star: Jamie Farr!

  • The Steve Allen Theater 4773 Hollywood Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90027 United States

Saturday night, October 29th: 2016

Fake Radio and Trepany House present our Halloween tradition: a chilling, 100% live re-enactment of the history-making broadcast of: "The War of the Worlds".

Originally performed the night before Halloween in 1938, the broadcast created such a stir that people actually thought there was a Martian invasion underway in Grover's Mill, New Jersey.

The landmark broadcast catapulted Orson Welles and his Mercury Radio Theatre into the national spotlight. Our show will feature a dramatic, faithful rendition of that original broadcast as well as a short, opening piece about the tumultuous life of Orson Welles. 

Our special guest star will be: Jamie Farr from the hit TV show M*A*S*H!

Running time is approximately 90min with no intermission, to best allow for a proper Martian Invasion. There or may not be additional ghouls and goblins in the theatre. Please consult your astrologer and shamanic counsellor for how best to prepare.
