‘All About Eve’ at Hanesbrands Theatre

“All About Eve” is based on the 1950 Academy Award-winning movie starring Bette Davis. This production was filmed at the Noel Coward Theatre in London’s West End.
Tattered and forlorn, Eve shows up in the dressing room of Broadway mega-star Margo Channing. Claiming to be Margo’s biggest fan, Eve tells a melancholy life story to Margo and her friends. Margo takes Eve under her wing, but, unfortunately, Eve is a conniver who uses Margo. Gillian Anderson of “The X Files” fame stars as Eve in the stage production.
