The popular and wildly OTT live musical version of HG Wells’s sci-fi novel.

Jeff Wayne's popular and wildly OTT spectacular live musical version of HG Wells's sci-fi novel – a live version of his 15m-selling prog album – settles into the West End for a run that sees the guitarist joined by a demented smorgasbord of musical guests including Jimmy Nail, Daniel Bedingfield and David Essex, plus 'new music' and a 3D hologram of Liam Neeson. Oh, and don't forget the 35-foot Martian fighting machine spitting real flames. Gee wow!

Absolutely dreadful.  The review below says it all although I'd add that as a couple of the singers were so awful the poor sound system was a blessing.

I love the war of the worlds music, but this show is such a huge disappointment. Bright lights are shone in the audiences face so often if you don't go home with a headache your lucky. That combined with a phalus spaceship a blue peter standard tripod and chronic dancers pretending to be weeds would make it bad enough. But when you have distorted music, singers you can hardly hear and certainly can't hear what they are singing and poor voice projection you have a very embarrassing show. If this show was put together by professionals you wonder what they are professional in as is certainly not the arts.
