WAR OF THE WORLDS
In 1988, he produced a major event, sanctioned by the State of New Jersey, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Orson Welles’ Radio Broadcast of the “War of The Worlds.” Welles set his famous Martian invasion in Grover’s Mill, New Jersey. O’Brien transformed the Mercer County Park skating rink structure into a giant spaceship complete with high-powered lasers and special effect lighting.
Inside he created a theater and presented his “Extraterrestrial Deceptions,” complete with world-class illusions enhanced by lasers. Most impressive was the fact that he produced the entire event within four weeks as well as obtaining sponsorship from the Warner Lambert Company, and it entertained tens of thousands during Halloween. Clips from this show are seen in The Magic Factory Halloween.
