Relive the infamous radio broadcast that terrified America. On Halloween 1938, Orson Welles depicted green Martians invading Earth during a live radio broadcast. "News bulletins" depicted mass destruction, military battles, and vast chaos. Millions panicked and looted storefronts, believing mankind was truly doomed. WOW returns to DC with an all-new cast for a short run before heading to the Prague Fringe Festival in the Czech Republic. Don’t miss Scena's exciting, rapid-fire stage version of this historic American classic. WOW is a rich and riveting theatre experience for all ages—so don't miss it.
