JEFF WAYNE'S THE WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE MUSICAL DRAMA

by | Read by Michael Sheen, Taron Egerton, Theo James, Adrian Edmondson, Anna-Marie Wayne

Audio Theater • 5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2018

The science-fiction classic undergoes a fantastic modernization, thanks to Jeff Wayne's energetic score and a cast of talented narrators. Michael Sheen capably steps into the character of the unnamed journalist and imbues his narration with steady calm as he recounts the Martian invasion of England. A varied cast coupled with subtle sound effects keeps the drama feeling fresh and dynamic. The musical score complements the story by punctuating the arrival of the Martians and other thrilling moments but also highlights the story's isolating atmosphere. Score and narration combine with high production values, resulting in a unique audio drama that enhances the original story. J.M.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
