The War Of The Worlds… as you’ve never seen it before…
Featuring a stellar cast, Jeff Wayne’s global music phenomenon is reimagined and brought to spectacular West End life for its much-anticipated world stage premiere.
Making their West End debuts are iconic actor, musician, and writer Jimmy Nail and former Sugababes popstar Heidi Range. Joining them are West End stars Michael Praed (The Sound of Music, Palladium) and Madalena Alberto (Evita, Dominion). Completing one of the starriest casts the West End has seen, the legendary David Essex returns to The War Of The Worlds for the first time since he recorded the original double album.
Also featuring Liam Neeson in sight and sound, the iconic Martian Fighting Machine, special effects, and a live orchestra conducted on stage by Jeff Wayne, this phenomenal new production playing for a strictly limited run until 30th April is not to be missed.
