Oct 29 – Staged Reading of the War of the Worlds
2:45 – 4 pm.
Description: On Oct 30, 1938, Orson Welles broadcast a radio adaptation of HG Wells’ War of the Worlds from West Windsor, NJ. The broadcast, which stated aliens were landing, inadvertently created panic as listeners had not been told in advance that it was a work of fiction.
Always Love Lucy Theatre will recreate that piece of New Jersey history nearly 84 years later, on October 29, 2022.
