Anderson plays Broadway star Margo Channing and Reid is Channing’s maid, Birdie, in the new production

James plays Channing’s super-fan, Eve. ‘The story seems made for the stage,’ writes Michael Billington, ‘with its portrait of loyal dressers, waspish critics and aspiring stars from the Copacabana School of Dramatic Art’

Stone plays a playwright called Lloyd in Ivo van Hove’s West End production

All About Eve was previously turned into a Broadway musical, Applause

The set and lighting design are by Van Hove’s longtime collaboratorJan Versweyveld; their previous collaborations include Network

Two-time Mercury prize-winner PJ Harvey, seen here with actor Voyzey, has scored the music

The Joseph L Mankiewicz film was based on a play – The Wisdom of Eve

All About Eve starts previews at theNoël Coward theatre, London, on 2 February
