All About Eve starring Gillian Anderson & Lily James

All About Eve starring Gillian Anderson

Noel Coward Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Classic Hollywood film All About Eve comes to the West End in a new stage adaptation starring Gillian Anderson and Lily James.

Based on the 1950 Academy Award-winning film starring Bette Davis, Gillian Anderson will deliver the iconic line ‘Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy night!’ when she takes on the role of Margo Channing with rising star Lily James (Baby Driver, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) playing the ultimate schemer Eve Harrington.

Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production from Ivo van Hove, one of the world’s most innovative theatre directors, asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.

All About Eve will run from 2 February 2019 until 11 May 2019 at the Noel Coward Theatre, London.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

When a helpful young fan insinuates herself into the life of ageing Broadway star Margo Channing, little does she realise the threat Eve Harrington poses to her career and personal life.

All About Eve with Gillian Anderson & Lily James confirmed for West End run
Gillian Anderson and Lily James will star in All About Eve at London's Noel Coward Theatre this coming February. The iconic multi-Oscar winning film has been adapted for the stage and will be directed by Olivier and Tony Award-winner Ivo van Hove. Emmy Award-winning Gillian Anderson (X-Files, The Fall, A Streetcar Named Desire) will play Margot Channing, famously portrayed by Bette Davis, with Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Downton Abbey, Baby Driver, Romeo and Juliet) taking on the role of scheming up-start Eve Harington. BAFTA Award-winner Monica Dolan (Vanity Fair, W1A, A Very English Sex Scandal) will join the cast in the role of Karen, alongside Sheila Reid, best known for playing Madge in ITV series Benidorm, as Birdie and Rhashan Stone (BBC series Killing Eve, Sky Series Delicious) as Lloyd. 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. Ivo van Hove's new adaptation promises 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. Further casting to be announced. Tickets will go on general sale at 10:00am GMT on 28 September 2018. Book tickets to All About Eve All About Eve will play a strictly limited 14 week season from 2 February 2019 until 11 May 2019 at the Noel Coward Theatre, London.
