Next Sunday (May 5th) sees another in the popular series of National Theatre rebroadcasts in Aix’s five star Renaissance Hotel.

All About Eve was filmed live from London’s Noel Coward Theatre.  As The Guardian said, it is a “show that reeks of chic”.

“Adapted and directed by the Belgian wizard, Ivo van Hove, from the 1950 classic film by Joseph Mankiewicz and starring Gillian Anderson (X-Files, A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again), All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing, the Legend and True Star of the theatre.  The spotlight is hers, always has been.  But now there’s Eve.  Her biggest fan.  Young, beautiful Eve.  The golden girl, the girl next door.  But you know all about Eve… don’t you?”

Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world’s most innovative theatre directors, mixes live action and film and asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity  never seems to get old.
Tickets for the 14:30 showing can be purchased on line at https://www.weezevent.com/all-about-eve
