“My musical version of The War of The Worlds has now occupied a good part of my life, and I’ve been fortunate to see it grow in so many unexpected ways. The Wat Of The Worlds Immersive Experience is one of those, a different world of entertainment, led by a group of diversely talented people to bring this unusual production to life, since its opening in May 2019.” Jeff Wayne said.
“When the pandemic closed The War Of The Worlds Immersive Experience virtually over-night in March 2020, it was like so many others that instantly became threatened, with no real surety of when ‘normal’, or even close to ‘normal’, would return.
But during this long period, those at Layered Reality worked tirelessly to meet every criteria the government required to make our show “COVID-secure. I am very grateful for their fortitude and determination, to now know that The Martians Are Coming…back! And with our collective teams, we’ll be returning with a new production that has pushed the levers of creatively even further.
No one would have believed!”
