Photo Coverage: First Look at THE WAR OF THE WORLDS at the Dominion Theatre

Jeff Wayne's musical version of THE WAR OF THE WORLDS began February 8 at the Dominion Theatre. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Wayne's global music phenomenon is reimagined and brought to spectacular life for its much anticipated world stage-premiere. This new production features a star cast, full supporting company, Liam Neeson in 3D holography and on screen, the iconic Martian Fighting Machine, special effects, and a live on-stage orchestra conducted by Jeff Wayne.

The ground-breaking score, which has enjoyed over 15 million double albums sales and a staggering 330 weeks in the charts, includes the unforgettable hits The Eve Of The War, Thunder Child and Forever Autumn. Set in Victorian England and inspired by the famous H.G. Wells novel of the same name, The War Of The Worlds tells the devastating story of the invasion of Earth by Martians, as seen through the eyes of a journalist, his loved ones and those he encounters.
