Network began performances at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway on November 10, 2018, and is set for an official opening on December 6 and a limited engagement through to March 17, 2019.
Synopsis: "Howard Beale, news anchor-man, isn’t pulling in the viewers. In his final broadcast he unravels live on screen. But when ratings soar, the network seizes on their newfound populist prophet, and Howard becomes the biggest thing on TV. Network depicts a media landscape where opinion trumps fact. Hilarious and hair-raising by turns, the iconic film by Paddy Chayefsky won four Academy Awards in 1976."
Once again directed by Tony and Olivier Award winner Ivo van Hove, the creative team behind Network features scenic and lighting design by Ivo van Hove's longtime collaborator Jan Versweyveld, as well as costume design by An D'Huys, video design by Tal Yarden, and original music & sound design by Olivier Award nominee Eric Sleichim.
Network is produced on Broadway by David Binder, the National Theatre, Patrick Myles, David Luff, Ros Povey and Lee Menzies.
Network Tickets are available now for performances through to March 17, 2019.
