Fake News Abounds in War of the Worlds: The Panic Broadcast
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 real news. Now, ten years later, the WBFR radio ensemble re-creates the colorful events surrounding that 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 a timely reminder of what fear and "fake news" can do to a society. See War of the Worlds: The Panic Broadcast this summer when Lost and Found Productions brings it to The John Hand Theater in Denver.
