While movie buffs debate whether Orson Welles was the greatest director of all time, he remains the undisputed No. 1 prankster in modern history. For Welles is responsible for the Citizen Kane of hoaxes: his 1938 radio broadcast adaptation of H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds. His hyper-realistic production infamously sparked widespread panic when listeners mistook the performance for actual news reports of an imminent alien invasion. Now you can travel back in time to get a sneak peak behind the scenes of the radio shenanigans at the CBS Mercury Theatre in Martians! This innovative stage drama recounts how a few talented actors -- and their genius director -- pulled off the greatest prank ever. Jerry Hager directs an "out of this world" adventure at Stagehouse Theatre.
