War of the Worlds 50th Anniversary Production (CD)

Info: 1 CD Running Time: 1 hour

An acclaimed, award-winning remake of Orson Welles' famous "Panic" broadcast, produced as if taking place in the present on Public Radio. Updated and directed by Firesign's David Ossman, it features Jason Robards, Steve Allen, Phil Proctor, Rene Auberjonois, and public radio personalities Douglas Edwards, Scott Simon, and Terry Gross, and many more. Tremendous on-location production by Oscar-winning engineer Randy Thom at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch.

This telling is true to the story while moving the story to the present. The radio station is a public station and feels like reality. The dialog is modern but faithful to the story. A great in your face production. A must listen.
