The official poster for the highly anticipated world premiere of All About Eve starring Gillian Anderson and Lily James has been released.
The production opens in London this February and will play a limited 14 week run at the Noel Coward Theatre.
All About Eve features an all-star cast including Gillian Anderson as ageing theatre legend Margo Channing, portrayed in the Academy Award winning film by Bette Davis, with Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and Cinderella actress Lily James as the scheming young upstart Eve Harrington.
Julian Ovenden (Downton Abbey) plays Margo’s love interest Bill, with BAFTA award winner Monica Dolan (Tracey Pritchard in BBC series W1A, A Very English Scandal) playing Margo’s close friend Karen Richards, Sheila Reid (Madge in comedy series Benidorm) is cast as Margo’s maid Birdie and Rashan Stone (BBC series Killing Eve) cast as playwright Lloyd Richards.
Ivo van Hove’s stage adaptation of the classic Academy Award winning film, promises a razor-sharp, unsettling exposé of the eternal obsession at the heart of show-business.
All About Eve will have set and lighting design from Ivo van Hove’s long-time collaborator Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D’Huys and music from double Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey, alongside Tom Gibbons’ sound design.
All About Eve will run from 2 February 2019 until 11 May 2019 at the Noel Coward Theatre, London.
