“Irresistible allure…drop-dead wit.”—Paul Taylor, Independent

“A show that reeks of chic…both a satire on, and a love letter to, the hermetic absurdities of the theater.”
—Michael Billington, Guardian

ALL ABOUT EVE tells the story of Margo Channing (Anderson), legend and true star of the theater. The spotlight is hers, and always has been. But now there’s Eve (James), her biggest fan—young, beautiful Eve, the golden girl, the girl next door. But you all know about Eve…don’t you…? Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, adapted from the 1950 film by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and the play "The Wisdom of Eve" by Mary Orr, asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old. DCP digital. (Description courtesy of NT Live)
