Mirror Theatre Company Presents WAR OF THE WORLDS, 10/13
Just in time for Halloween, The Mirror Theatre Company at the Avery Schreiber Playhouse presents a stunning re-creation of the classic Orson Welles radio broadcast of WAR OF THE WORLDS. Orson Welles adapted H.G. Wells classic sci-fi story, telling the tale of Martian invasion via a string of urgent news bulletins. The broadcast scared people alright, but not in exactly the way Welles planned. Americans hearing the live broadcast believed that the country was actually under attack from space aliens. Set in a radio studio, circa 1938, WAR OF THE WORLDS uses the original script written and produced by Welles and a sterling cast of veteran voice actors.
Directed by Mirror Theatre Company veteran Len Smith, the cast includes J.R. Cox, James Cox, Philip Pirio, Brian Spengel, Jerome St. Jerome, Philip Wiles and Mr. Smith as Orson Welles!
The Mirror Theater Company On The Air will present WAR OF THE WORLDS at The Avery Schreiber Playhouse in four Sundayperformances October 13th and 20th at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. at 4934 Lankershim Boulevard, Noho, CA 91601.
