Lafayette College Theater: Holiday Shorts
December 6–7, 2019
JOIN US FOR THE BEST OF LONDON THEATER, ON SCREEN IN LANDIS CINEMA.
All About Eve tells the story of 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?
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.
Gillian Anderson (X-Files, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) lead in All About Eve, adapted by Ivo van Hove from the 1950 Twentieth Century Fox film by Joseph L Mankiewicz and the play The Wisdom of Eve by Mary Orr.
This new stage version features lighting design from frequent van Hove collaborator Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D’Huys, and music from double Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey.
General admission seating.
Tickets: $15 adults, $6 youth and students
