Sci-Fest LA

Orson Welles

Sci-Fest LA War of the Worlds

Last month I was given the opportunity to participate in a fund raiser for Sci-Fest LA, a festival of one-act, science fiction plays here in Los Angeles. Started in 2014, the Hollywood Reporter christened the inaugural festival, “An inspired notion,” and concluded that “After seeing the First Annual Sci-Fest, rest assured you’ll be hoping for a Second Annual Sci-Fest.”

Well, the second annual festival is here. And I was asked to participate by contributing some original artwork to a fundraiser Saturday, January 17. This show is a one night only performance of Orson Welles’s War of the Worlds to be performed by great actors from various Star Trek incarnations including Michael Dorn, Wil Wheaton and Walter Koenig! They and several others will be performing the one-act play of Welles’s version of the H.G. Wells masterpiece and then signing artwork from me and six other artists, which will then be auctioned off.

If you’re in Los Angeles this weekend, check it out at the Acme Theater. It’s a small space and seats are limited.
