War of the Worlds: The Panic Broadcast

Friday, October 11, 2019

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' 1938 radio adaptation, which listeners took for news. Now, 10 years later, the WBFR radio ensemble 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 timely reminder of what fear can do to a society.
