Stephen Dolginoff, the Drama Desk nominated author/composer of the award-winning Off-Broadway musical Thrill Me: The Leopold & Loeb Story, has created, Panic, an exciting new musical based on the incredible true story behind the broadcast that panicked the nation on the night before Halloween in 1938. In an early example of “fake news,” Orson Welles and his Mercury Theatre Company’s radio-play adaptation of HG Wells’ “War of the Worlds” seemed so realistic, that audiences across the country thought they were listening to a live report announcing that Earth was really being invaded by Mars! Join us for a benefit concert of this new musical comedy!
