The War of the Worlds

  • The Steve Allen Theatre 4773 Hollywood Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90027 United States (map)

The second of our five re-enactments of the history-making broadcast: "The War of the Worlds". Originally performed by Orson Welles and his Mercury Radio Theatre 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.

Our show will feature a dramatic, faithful rendition of the original broadcast as well as a short, opening piece about the tumultuous life of Orson Welles. 

Running time is approximately 90min with no intermission to best allow for a proper Martian Invasion.
