The War of The Worlds – Alive On Stage! The New Generation will be screening in high definition and superb 5.1 surround sound at cinemas across the UK on Thursday 11 April and Sunday 14 April 2013.
Filmed live on stage in front of a sell-out audience at London’s O2 Arena on 15th December 2012, Alive! is a unique musical extravaganza based on H.G. Wells’ dark Victorian tale of a Martian invasion of England. Jeff Wayne’s newly re–imagined production with its award–winning score features the holographic and filmed performance of internationally acclaimed actor Liam Neeson as George Herbert, The Journalist. Liam interacts with a stellar cast of live performers including Jason Donovan, Marti Pellow, Wicked’s Kerry Ellis, Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson and Jett Black’s Will Stapleton.
The show features the hit singles The Eve of The War and Forever Autumn performed live and accompanied by 45 musicians on stage, conducted by Jeff Wayne. A multi–media experience, the production includes a host of special effects with CGI on a 100ft–wide ‘animation wall’, pyrotechnics, illusions and leaf drops. Filmed in high definition and 5.1 surround sound, Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds – Alive on Stage! The New Generation is ideal family entertainment brought to life on the big screen.
