HG Wells’ novel, first published in 1898, the prototype for all science fiction, describes the invasion of Earth by ruthless Martians with superior intelligence, incredible machines and devastating weaponry.
Since its inception in 1978, Jeff Wayne’s original double album has become one of the most groundbreaking and best-selling musical works of all time, winning two prestigious Ivor Novello Awards.
Reimagined and brought to spectacular theatrical life, this breathtaking new production is Jeff Wayne’s musical theatre version.
The iconic score is played live and conducted on stage by Jeff Wayne. The show will include new music, a star cast, and a full supporting company of performers – as well as video walls, the iconic Martian Fighting Machine, special effects and, in 3D holography, Liam Neeson as The Journalist.
