Join actors from the several Star Trek franchise shows as they recreate the classic radio thriller “War of the Worlds” for the L.A. Theater Works. The breathless pace and convincing details make it clear why the Orson Wells broadcast of an “eyewitness report” of an invasion from Mars caused a nationwide panic in 1938.
Originally performed by Orson Welles and his Mercury Theatre of the Air, “War of the Worlds” is truly the mother of all space invasions, offering a rare combination of chills, thrills and great literature. Adapted from the Howard Koch script.
Guest appearances include Leonard Nimoy (Spock) from the classic “Star Trek” series Brent Spiner (Data), Wil Wheaton (Wesley), Dwight Schultz (Barclay) and Gates McFadden (Dr. Crusher) of “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” Armin Shimerman (Quark) of “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” John DeLancie (Q) from “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and “Star Trek: Voyager”
The radio production also stars Meagen Fay (“Evan Almighty”), Jerry Hardin (“X-Files”) and Tom Virtue (“Turok: Son of Stone”).
