The War of the Worlds: A Live, 80th Anniversary Recreation!

Tuesday, October 23, 2018, 2:00 AM - 4:30 AM

"Slickly professional in every particular... Formidably funny… Surprisingly pleasing..."
— The Los Angeles Times

"An uncanny sense of a time warp gone horribly right... A palpable sense of infectious goofiness…"
"A must see... Boasts an outstanding cast..."
— LA Weekly

"Riveting in its commitment and vocal variety."
— Stage Raw

To celebrate its 80th anniversary, the cast of "Fake Radio" is proud to recreate, in its entirety, the radio broadcast that shocked an entire nation: "The War of the Worlds"!

In 1938, Orson Welles and his talented Mercury Radio Theater Company pulled off the improbable: convincing the nation that a Martian invasion was underway. 80 years later, come see our chilling recreation of this incredible piece of American radio history!

Our show will include a short piece by famed SciFi writer Ray Bradbury and a sketch about the life of Orson Welles. And our special guest star is: Phil Proctor from the legendary comedy troupe "The Firesign Theater"!
