Funny / Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds

Go To

  • "Brave New World." The drunken reprise is the best part, but the whole thing is possibly the most dead-on satire of would-be visionary leaders ever written.
  • At the end of the "New Generation" stage shows, after the encore ends, the martian fighting machine on stage releases a jet of smoke, and Jeff Wayne looks up and waves a finger with a patronising look on his face.
  • Parson Nathaniel's wife, in attempt to calm him, says "They're not devils, they're martians". And that's better how?
    • Demons are supernatural creatures lead by the literal counterpoint to God. Martians bleed and so, theoretically, we can kill them.

How well does it match the trope?
