The Day The Earth Stood Still

Alberta Abbey
126 NE Alberta St. Portland

The LA Weekly Fake Radio opens its 2020 season with a recreation of Lux Radio Theatre's 1954 Broadcast of The Day the Earth Stood Still. An alien named Klaatu lands his spacecraft on Earth just after the end of World War II. He brings an important message to the planet that he wishes to share with representatives of all nations. However, because communication is difficult due to Cold War fears, Klaatu is forced to try an alternative approach: he disguises himself as a common human on Earth. Then, after finding help from a few unlikely humans, Klaatu shocks the entire planet into finally listening to his important message about the future of humanity. Joining us, once again, is one of our all-time, favorite guest stars: Kevin McDonald, best known for his hysterical characters in the legendary comedy troupe, The Kids in the Hall.
