October 25th, 2018 - October 28th, 2018

An alien invasion throws humanity into chaos in the classic sci-fi novel The War of the Worlds--but all it took to cause real-life panic in the streets was Orson Welles's 1938 radio adaptation, which listeners took for news. THE WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE PANIC BROADCAST recreates the colorful events surrounding the infamous evening, including the full original broadcast. Complete with vintage commercials and live sound effects, this radio-play-within-a-radio-play is a thrilling homage to the form's golden age and a timely reminder of what fear can do to a society.
