Gillan Anderson (A Streetcar Name Desire) and Lily James (Mama Mia!) lead in All About Eve.
Lily James is excellent and Gillian Anderson is incredible in one of those "I was there" moments
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?
This is event theatre done with tremendous panache
Directed by Ivo van Hove (Hedda Gabler, A View From The Bridge) and captured from London’s West End. All About Eve lifts the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition and asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.
Filmed by National Theatre Live
Presented by Sonia Freidman Productions
Available at least until 12 January 2023
