War of the Worlds New Generation Theatre Review

Live at the O2 in London we saw War of the Worlds New Generation conducted by Jeff Wayne. The music was loud and powerful and instantly recognisable. Unfortunately we were both expecting a bit more of a show, and there were occasional acting pieces, also a couple of songs that seemed to grate against the music. The effects, compared to other West End shows, were also lacking, with one tiny alien walker and a "hologram" Liam Neason, which was him basically projected on a bit of plexiglass! We were basically watching a CGI movie on the big screen, to live music, with the odd actor thrown in. Its a shame, as if they'd trimmed some of it down, we wouldn't of had to leave early!
