Why See ?

Bryan Cranston is ELECTRIC on Broadway!

Nominated for five 2019 Tony Awards!

Undoubtedly one of 2017's biggest draws when it premiered in London, the riveting stage adaptation of the landmark 1976 film looks set to repeat that success as the play takes up residence on Broadway this winter, with original star Bryan Cranston once more at the reigns as the iconic Howard Beale, a dangerously disenfranchised anchorman, in the role that earned him an Olivier Award.

A chilling black comedy, Network is the story of newsreader Howard Beale who becomes increasingly outraged with the way that proper 'news' is devolving into a circus. After being fired following ailing ratings, Beale's desperation leads him to deliver the rant of his career, threatening a bloody outcome to his final broadcast. Whilst planning his on-air suicide, ratings go sky high in this cautionary tale of anger and exploitation.

Recognised as one of the greatest screenplays of all time, Network's seemingly prophetic message of frustration at modern society and media puppetry for profit only gains significance as the years pass, This innovative new production is adapted by Lee Hall, with direction from the highly critically acclaimed Ivo Van Hove whose works have from London to Broadway and back again with increasing speed over the last few years.

From Bad to Mad

Emmy, Tony and Olivier-winning Bryan Cranston is well known across the world as beleaguered drug lord Walter White in the hit series Breaking Bad, but has been working steadily across the world of stage and screen for over 30 years as an actor, director, and screenwriter. He was last seen on the Great White Way in 2014 when he took home the Tony Award for Best Actor for his performance as Lyndon Johnson in All The Way.

What we thought

phenomenal Mesmerizing TIMELY

Network has landed on Broadway in a timely manner and Hove's excellent direction keeps the audience engaged long after the cast has left the stage

We are surrounded by screens bombarding us with constant advertisements, entertainment and news. But to what degree are the lines between these categories blurred?
