Dueling ‘Invasion’ forces in L.A.

Aliens land onscreen, on the stage

Visitors have often deemed L.A. a hub of otherworldly activity, and there’s a full-on alien invasion under way this week.

Besides the extraterrestrials visitors landing in cineplexes in Warner Bros.’ “The Invasion,” local auds can find aliens onstage as well, in “Invasion! The Musical.”

Coincidentally (or not — this being Hollywood), the Hudson Theater bowed its “musical satire” the same weekend as the Nicole Kidman pic infiltrated the city.

Both tuner and film rep yet another incarnation of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” While the tuner’s website promises “kitschy spectacle” and “moral depravity.” Warner’s pic hews more closely to Jack Finney’s 1955 novel.

But there’s no doubt the tuner would be happy snatching bodies from the plexes.

Perhaps that was the plan all along.
