Porchlight Music Theatre and A Red Orchid Theatre team up with this audio drama, based on the legendary Orson Welles broadcast of H.G. Wells's The War of the Worlds on Halloween eve of 1938. The story of a Martian attack that went out over the CBS airwaves set off mass hysteria and helped make Welles a rising star. Porchlight artistic director Michael Weber wrote the script, and A Red Orchid ensemble member Lawrence Grimm directs a cast that includes such Chicago heavy hitters as Lance Baker, Mierka Girten, Will Clinger, Michael Patrick Thornton, Michael Shannon, Sadieh Rifai, and many others.
