One of the must-see shows of 2019 stars two iconic performers in roles made famous in a 1950 film. All About Eve, starring Gillian Anderson and Lily James runs at the Noël Coward Theatre and it will stand up alongside a wealth of popular shows as an unmissable West End treat.
Ivo van Hove has adapted the story to the stage and he will direct a story that looks at fame and aging, with Anderson and James starring alongside Rhashan Stone, Sheila Reid and Monica Dolan. Together they will provide a gripping and memorable night at the theatre, with their performances elevating an already must-see production.
All About Eve focuses on the character of Margo Channing, a 40-year-old star of Broadway and during the course of the show we will witness not only how her age has affected her, but also her relationships with her fans. This is explored through her meeting with the young fan Eve Harrington, whose entry into her life turns it upside down.
Audiences might remember that Bette Davis played the lead role in the 1950 film version, creating an iconic character in the process. So these are some pretty big shoes to fill and producers have landed a coup with Gillian Anderson, one of the most respected performers of her generation.
Whilst most know her from her portrayal of Special Agent Dana Scully in television’s The X-Files (and its associated films), she has had a long and varied career on the stage as well, including A Streetcar Named Desire at the Young Vic Theatre, A Doll’s House at the Donmar Warehouse and The Sweetest Swing In Baseball at the Royal Court Theatre, amongst others. Theatregoers will also recognise her from roles in The Fall and Hannibal on television and The Last King Of Scotland on the big screen.
So it is safe to say she is the perfect choice to bring life to Margo Channing on the stage of the Noël Coward Theatre. She takes on the role as All About Eve begins performances at the West End venue on Tuesday 12th February 2019 (previews from Saturday 2nd February 2019).
