Review: The Brilliantly Creative Yuval Sharon Brings a Modern WORLD OF THE WORLDS Rad Photo Review: The Brilliantly Creative Yuval Sharon Brings a Modern WORLD OF THE WORLDS Radio Show to the Disney Concert Hall
by Shari Barrett - Nov 20, 2017

On Saturday, November 18, 2017, I attended the world premiere operatic, four-site adaptation of WAR OF THE WORLDS, adapted and directed by Yuval Sharon, with music by Annie Gosfield, co-produced by The Industry and NOW Art. The production was based on the original radio play by Howard Koch, which when performed by Orson Welles terrified the nation into believing Martians had landed in New Jersey. Performed in unison within the Disney Concert Hall and at three refurbished air raid siren sites in the nearby downtown LA area, from where news bulletin reports were acted out and reported in, the entire experience was both breathtaking and mind-blowing and certainly one I will never forget.
