All About Eve to be broadcast in cinemas

Robin Johnson

By Robin Johnson Published 23 January 2019

If you haven’t heard All About Eve, you will do in the coming months! Plans have been announced to broadcast Ivo van Hove’s eagerly anticipated stage adaptation, starring Gillian Anderson and Lily James, to cinemas across the UK and internationally in April.

Broadcast by National Theatre Live, which will screen the production to over 2,500 venues across 65 countries – including 700 cinemas on UK shores – All About Eve will be available to watch on Thursday 11 April. You can find a list of participating cinemas here.

And with just under two weeks to go until previews begin at the Noël Coward Theatre, excitement is building for the play, which is based on the seminal 1950 Twentieth Century Fox film and Mary Orr’s play The Wisdom Of Eve.

All About Eve follows star of the stage Margo Channing, whose legendary status treading the boards attracts the attention of young, beautiful Eve – her biggest fan. But Eve isn’t necessarily the golden girl she portrays, and razor-sharp revelations unfold about the obsession which lies at the heart of show business.

As well as Gillian and Lily, the cast includes the likes of Monica Dolan, Ian Drysdale, Tsion Habte, Jessie Mei Li, Julian Ovenden, Sheila Reid, Rhashan Stone, Stanley Townsend and Philip Voyzey.

Looking to see it in person? Previews begin on 2 February, with the final performance scheduled for 11 May.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
