Ivo van Hove’s take on All About Eve ticks all my boxes at the Noël Coward Theatre, great work from Gillian Anderson, Lily James and a stellar Monica Dolan.
Full casting has been announced for the world premiere of Ivo van Hove’s stage production of the 1950 Twentieth Century Fox film All About Eve as West End rehearsals commence.
In Irwin Shaw’s Bury the Dead, written in 1935, six fallen American soldiers stand up in their graves and courteously ask not to be buried.
The heart of Bury The Dead is the army using the loved ones to emotionally manipulate the soldiers to ‘obey orders’ – or at least try to.
This autumn the National Theatre stages the world-premiere of Network, Lee Hall’s new adaptation of the Oscar-winning film by Paddy Chayefsky.
Directed by Ivo van Hove, the cast includes Bryan Cranston as Howard Beale, Michelle Dockery as Diana Christenson and Douglas Henshall as Max Schumaker.
This show is scripted and designed with a young appreciated audience in mind and I believe it does its job brilliantly. It left me feeling enchanted, heart-warmed and charmed when I left the theatre. It really is delightful and I encourage anyone with children to go and see it.
