Why Watch All About Eve
All About Eve is a modern adaptation of the famous Academy Award-winning movie from the with the same name. The story is replete with an aura of mystery and duplicity brought out by its fascinating characters. Tony Award-winning director Ivo Van Hove does a fantastic job of putting together the stage version of this classic film. Gillian Anderson portrays the charming Margo Channing, who sees nothing but good in others and is deceived by her ardent fan Eve, played by Lily James. Both the actors have enjoyed success on stage as well as the big screen, and are sure to impress you with their stunning performances. 2-time Mercury Award-winner PJ Harvey adds a new dimension to the performance with her expert music direction. “All About Eve” is a fitting tribute to Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s evergreen 1950 American film.
Margo Channing is in the twilight of her career as she approaches the ripe age of 40. She is worried that her days on Broadway are numbered. She encounters an eager and enthusiastic Eve Harrington who poses as a fan and is adamant to learn more from her idol. The adulation is all but a farce, for Eve has already set in motion a plan to rise to the top of Broadway by dethroning her icon. Unbeknownst to Margo, Eve is immediately hired as an assistant after the encounter and gets the role of her understudy. Eve then manages to lure theatre critics to watch her performance and jumpstart her career in Hollywood. Watching this story of betrayal and deceit brought to life by an incomparable cast will certainly be an unforgettable experience this season at the West End.
