An alien invasion throws humanity into chaos, but is it real-life or simply the Orson Welles’ 1938 radio broacast? Ten years later, the WBFR radio ensemble recreates that infamous evening. Complete with vintage commercials and sound effects performed live onstage, this radio-play-within-a-play is a thrilling homage to radio’s golden age.
