Gillian Anderson and Lily James to star in strictly limited run of All About Eve at the Noël Coward Theatre, I will be queuing for tickets for this one. Exciting news today hearing about the world premiere of Ivo van Hove’s highly anticipated stage production of the 1950 Twentieth Century Fox film All About Eve, with music by PJ Harvey. Ivo van Hove has had recent big theatre hits with Bryan Cranston in Network and Ruth Wilson in Hedda Gabler. I saw Ruth in the modern and dramatic production, it was brilliant and I cannot wait to see what he does with this brilliant story.
One of my favourite films with the Hollywood icon Bette Davis, a must-see film if you do not know it, curl up on the sofa for a Sunday afternoon treat.
• All About Eve will run for 14 weeks with reduced priced previews beginning on 2nd February 2019.
• Tickets go on general sale at 10am on 28th September 2018 with presale from 10am on Wednesday 26th September. Over 20,000 tickets will be available at £25 or under during the run.
The much acclaimed film, based on Mary Orr’s original play “The Wisdom of Eve”, remains the only film to receive four female acting nominations. The Emmy Award-winning Gillian Anderson (X-Files, The Fall, A Streetcar Named Desire) will return to the stage alongside Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Downton Abbey, Romeo and Juliet). BAFTA Award-winner Monica Dolan will join the cast in the role of Karen, alongside Sheila Reid as Birdie and Rhashan Stone as Lloyd with performances running from 2nd February at the West End’s Noël Coward Theatre.
See you there!
