Los Angeles Theatre Works (LATW) presents a sci-fi double-bill of War of the Worlds and The Lost World at the Skirball at 8 pm tonight. When Orson Welles’ performed a 1938 broadcast of War of the Worlds in 1938, he caused a nationwide panic -- unlike the Tom Cruise movie version. Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World follows a scientific expedition deep into the Amazon jungle - back into the time of dinosaurs and cave men. All performances are recorded to air on LATW's nationally syndicated radio theater series. Here’s the uber-geeky tidbit though: the performances are directed by John de Lancie aka “Q” from Star Trek: TNG.
