The War Of The Worlds

Waterfront Playhouse On the Air will Broadcast Orson Welles’ The War of the Worlds at 8pm Oct. 31 in association with US1 Radio.

The War of the Worlds” is an episode of the American radio drama anthology series The Mercury Theatre on the Air directed and narrated by actor and future filmmaker Orson Welles as an adaptation of H. G. Wells’s novel The War of the Worlds (1898). It was performed and broadcast live as a Halloween episode at 8 p.m. on Sunday, October 30, 1938, over the Columbia Broadcasting System radio network. The episode became famous for allegedly causing panic among its listening audience, though the scale of that panic is disputed, as the program had relatively few listeners.

Tickets are $20 per person, masks are required, temperatures will be taken and social distancing observed. This show, as with all of the Waterfront Playhouse On the Air broadcasts are available following the show at US1 Radio.com. For more information call 305-294-5015.
