The Black Box Theatre Coming Attractions:

War of the Worlds - a radio play


Broadcast from New York's Mercury Theatre in 1938, this infamous radio play, based on the novel by H. G. Wells, had many terrified listeners convinced that an actual alien invasion of Earth was taking place. Adapted by Howard E. Koch, co-writer of Casablanca, and directed and narrated by Orson Welles, this original script detailing the frightening tale of an extraterrestrial takeover is now available to bring to life onstage to thrill and chill audiences.


The brilliant idea behind staging of the radio play is to present it as a series of news bulletins breaking into musical programming without commercial interruption.  Radio announcers describe the events and conducting mock interviews with experts, eye witnesses, government officials, and military leaders.   You don't want to miss it!!

It Had To Be You

 

This delightful comedy is about Theda Blau, a failed actress, health food nut,  and would-be playwright who wants to find love and success in New York.  She meets Vito Pignoli, a hugely successful TV commercial director. By holding him hostage in her apartment on a snowy Christmas Eve, she somehow manages to convince him to be her partner both on the page and off. 

 

"A cartoon comedy of great dexterity and loving warmth." - The New York Post 


"Something of a comic miracle. . . . A funny, funny, and finally touching play." - WCBS-TV
