Julian Ovenden joins the cast of All About Eve

Last week, it was confirmed that All About Eve starring Gillian Anderson and Lily James will be premiering the Noël Coward Theatre in February next year. And today, it was announced that theatre veteran Julian Ovenden will be joining the cast.

Julian’s extensive career has seen him appear in Merrily We Roll Along, Grand Hotel, Annie Get Your Gun, and King Lear. He has also starred in film and TV shows such as Foyle’s War, Downton Abbey, and The Crown.

He joins not only Gillian Anderson and Lily James, but also Monica Dolan, Sheila Reid, and Rhashan Stone.

All About Eve is based on the multi-award-winning film of the same name, which in turn was inspired by Mary Orr’s original play The Wisdom Of Eve. It tells the story of Margo Channing (Gillian) a legend and true star of the theatre. The spotlight is hers, always has been, but now there’s Eve (Lily), her biggest fan. Young, beautiful Eve. The golden girl, the girl next door. But you know all about Eve… don’t you…?

Ivo van Hove will be directing, with set and lighting design from Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D’Huys and music from double Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey, alongside Tom Gibbons’ sound design.

Tickets to All About Eve will be going on sale soon. Follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date with the latest ticket releases.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

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. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

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.
