PJ Harvey is confirmed to score Ivo Van Hove’s stage adaptation of All About Eve — a film that explores identity, sexism, and ageism in regards to success and fame — at London’s Noël Coward Theatre, starring Gillian Anderson and Lily James.
All About Eve is the stage production of the 1950 film of the same name, which was in turn based on Mary Orr’s original play The Wisdom of Eve. The original film was written and directed by Joseph L Mankiewicz and starred Bette Davis as Margo Channing, a Broadway star. Eve Harrington, played in the film by Anne Baxter, is a young fan who gets involved in Channing’s life. The film received 14 Academy Award nominations and won six, including Best Picture.
Tickets will go on general sale at 10am on September 28. The show runs for 14 weeks from 2 February 2 to May 11, 2019 with an opening night on February 12.
