We recently got to sit down with the company of "All About Eve", currently playing at the Noël Coward Theatre in London’s West End, to talk about bringing this classic Hollywood film to the London Stage, and then back to the screen on an NT Live broadcast.

The company, led by Gillian Anderson and Lily James as Margo Channing and Eve Harrington respectively, were totally aware that this production of the beloved film, arguably the film that launched Marilyn Monroe’s career, and where Bette Davis utters the immortal words “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night”, was going to be highly scrutinised. But they didn’t have to worry at all. Ivo van Hove’s interpretation has seen a sold out run at the Noël Coward and the company revelled in this stage adaptation.
