Clark Art Institute to Broadcast London National Theatre’s ‘All About Eve’
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — All About Eve, starring Gillian Anderson (X-Files, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Downton Abbey, Baby Driver), airs in the Clark Art Institute’s auditorium on Saturday, February 8, at 1 p.m. This encore broadcast was captured live-to-film during the play’s 2019 run at the Nöel Coward Theatre in London’s West End.
All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing, legendary star of the theater, and Eve, her biggest fan. As Eve insinuates herself further into Margo’s life, it becomes apparent that there’s more to Eve than meets the eye.
This adaptation of the classic 1950 Joseph Mankiewicz film is 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, Ivo van Hove (Network, NT Live: A View from the Bridge), asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.
Tickets are $18 ($16 for Clark members) and can be purchased at clarkart.edu or by phoning 413 458 0524. Run time is two hours. All ticket sales are nonrefundable.
