Adapted from the 1950s cult classic film, starring Bette Davis and Anne Baxter, All About Eve is headed to West End in 2019. The critically-acclaimed film won 6 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and was nominated for a whopping 14 awards in total. The movie also made cinema history by being the only film to have received four female acting Oscar nominations!
The West End production of All About Eve is being directed by Ivo Van Hove, who won the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Play for A View From The Bridge in 2016. The visionary director has also headlined many other acclaimed productions including Lazarus, Network, Roman Tragedies, and Obsession. Jan Versweyveld is in-charge of set and lighting design while costume design is being overseen by An D’Huys. The show’s score has been composed by double Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey and sound design is being handled by Tom Gibbons.
About the Show
The X Files’ Gillian Anderson will take on the meaty role of fading Broadway starlet Margo Channing with Lily James (Cinderella, Baby Driver, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) tackling the challenging role of Eve Harrington. Rounding out the rest of the main cast are Monica Dolan, Sheila Reid, Rashan Jones, and Julian Ovenden. All About Eve is being produced by Sonia Friedman and is scheduled to premiere at the Noel Coward Theatre in London starting February 2019 for a limited 12-week engagement.
All About Eve follows the life of iconic Broadway star Margo Channing. When the play picks up, Margo is turning 40 and getting increasingly worried about her career prospects after she hits her 40s. In this vulnerable state, she encounters Eve, a young beautiful fan who is obsessed with her. After a seemingly random dressing room encounter, Eve is hired as Margo’s assistant. What Margo doesn't know is that Eve has a nefarious scheme to get to the top and all the attention she is showering Margo is nothing but a facade.
Things get interesting when Eve makes some strides and ends up being cast as Margo’s understudy in an upcoming play. The obsessive fan goes ahead and invites theatre critics to watch her performance without informing Margo, officially kick-starting her journey to Hollywood. All the scheming and plotting ends in a thrilling climax that'll wow you.
