War of the Worlds: Live Radio-Style Play Celebrates Broadcast's 75th Anniversary
Mercury Theatre's groundbreaking radio broadcast of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds caused mass hysteria among listeners, many of whom were convinced that a real alien invasion was taking place. This Halloween, Regent Theatre will commemorate the 75th anniversary of Orson Welles' panic-inducing War of the Worlds broadcast with a live theatre event recreating one of the most famous radio plays ever produced. This new War of the Worlds production will use classic foley audio techniques and will feature a cast of local media celebrities including Christopher Lydon from WGBH, arts and entertainment critic Joyce Kulhawik, RadioBDC on-air personality Henry Santoro, Cha-Chi LoPrette from 100.7 WZLX and more. The live event will raise funds for The Orson Welles Complex, a new documentary about the legendary Cambridge art house.
