Margo Channing. Legend. True star of the theatre. The spotlight is hers, always has been. But now there’s Eve. Her biggest fan. Young, beautiful Eve. The golden girl, the girl next door. But you know all about Eve…don’t you…?
Ivo van Hove directs Gillian Anderson and Lily James in his new adaptation of All About Eve, a razor-sharp, unsettling exposé of the eternal obsession at the heart of show-business. Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world’s most innovative theatre directors, asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.
It has been announced that Stanley Townsend will play the part of erudite Broadway theatre critic Addison DeWitt alongside Ian Drysdale who appears as Max Fabian, Tsion Habte as Phoebe, Charles Hagerty as Waiter, Grace Stone as Ensemble and Philip Voyzey as the Pianist.
As well as being directed by Ivo van Hove, the creative team for the production also includes set and lighting design from Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D’Huys and music from double Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey, alongside Tom Gibbons’ sound design.
