Theater Post: 'All About Eve', 'True West' Casting News, Ben Platt + LMM Hamildrop

  • Ivo van Hove (A View From the Bridge) is bringing a play adaptation of the classic film All About Eve to the West End in 2019.

  • Originally, Cate Blanchett was set to star, but it's been reported she has to drop due to scheduling issues.

  • Gillian Anderson is in talks to take over the role of Margot Channing.

  • Roundabout Theater Company is producing True West, the classic Sam Shepard play, at the American Airlines Theater beginning in December 2018.

  • Ethan Hawke and Paul Dano are set to play the estranged brothers who reunite at their mother's California home.

  • A previous Broadway production in 2000 starred Philip Seymour Hoffman and John C. Reilly, who alternated the roles of the brothers.

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt combined forces for the March Hamildrop "Found/Tonight", which is a mash-up of "Story of Tonight" from Hamilton and "You Will Be Found" from Dear Evan Hansen. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the single will benefit the March for Our Lives initiative.

Love her, but I really hope Gillian is better in All About Eve than she was in A Streetcar Named Desire.
