Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds to open in the West End

Jeff Wayne’s musical version of The War of The Worlds will open in the West End next year following many years of extensive touring.

Produced by Bill Kenwright, the show will open at the Dominion Theatre on 17th February 2016 (previews from 8th February) for a limited run to 9th April 2016.

The iconic score is played live and conducted on stage by Jeff Wayne. Liam Neeson will appear as The Journalist as a 3D hologram.

Casting is yet to be announced. The most recent UK arena tour starred Joseph Whelan, Brian McFadden, Jason Donovan and Carrie Hope Fletcher (pictured).

Both shocking and thrilling the world by exposing the flaws and hypocrisy of Victorian society with his futuristic thinking and alternate views, Wells unlocked a door into the future that took his readers on a unique adventure far away from the social constraints of 19th Century England.
