Broadcast in HD from the Noël Coward Theatre in London’s West End, this National Theatre Live screening of "All About Eve" — starring Gillian Anderson ("X-Files") and Lily James ("Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again") — comes to the stage of San Jose's Hammer Theatre Center. "All About Eve" tells the story of Margo Channing: Legend. True star of the theater. The spotlight is hers and always has been. But now along comes Eve, Channing’s biggest fan. She’s young, she’s beautiful, she’s the golden girl. Of course attentions begin to turn. Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world's most innovative theater directors, Ivo van Hove (NT Live: "A View From the Bridge"), examines our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity. "All About Eve" is 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. Van Hove directs this new stage version, 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.
