One of the most successful stage shows of recent times returns to Capital FM Arena Nottingham on Tuesday 4 December 2012 with a star studded cast star and another technological leap forward.
Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds – The New Generation is proud to announce Jason Donovan as Parson Nathaniel, Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson as the Artilleryman, Wicked’s Kerry Ellis as Beth! and Marti Pellow in the role of the Voice of Humanity
‘The New Generation’ of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds has been launched in conjunction with Sony Music, Live Nation and SJM Concerts, featuring a new interpretation of the classic recording.
Internationally acclaimed actor Liam Neeson will be seen in 3D holography as the story’s narrator and leading the new cast. Neeson will be seen in three ways: appearing as the first full body hologram seen on stage interacting with live actors, as an 11-foot high holographic head and shoulders hovering above the stage, and appearing within the two-hour CGI film projected onto the incredible 100 foot wide ‘animation wall’ which adds a true epic scale to the production.
Liam takes over from Richard Burton, whose holographic head had appeared in the show since 2006, using the original narration from Jeff Wayne’s classic 1978 album, a sound that has lived long in the memory and deep in the psyche of generations who have heard it.
