“Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.”

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. BAFTA Award-winner Monica Dolan will join the cast in the role of Karen, alongside Julian Ovenden as Bill, Sheila Reid as Birdie and Rhashan Stone as Lloyd. Further casting to be announced.

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.

Ivo van Hove’s direction will be accompanied by 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. Casting is by Julia Horan CDG.

Although there were contemporary touches, this did not veer from the Mankiewicz script and was all the better for it. A balanced ensemble production which delivered and was not just a star vehicle. Loved it.

Liked the use of video to show us behind the scenes. Gillian Anderson fabulous as always with incredible costumes. But overall the storyline has been done so many times.

I thought this was excellent. Pacy dialogue, fine central performances from Gillian Anderson and Lily James and even better perfomances from the supporting cast, all held together by excellent direction and staging. It would have been 5 stars but for the ever-present drone of incidental(?) music, which was unnecessary and intrusive.
