With an all-star cast and directing by Tony-Award winner Ivo van Hove, Network is sure to be the hottest ticket in town for the fall theatrical season. Lee Hall’s stage adaptation of the Oscar-Winning 1976 film follows the story of Howard Beale (Bryan Cranston) as his career unravels live on television. With his mental breakdown on full display, Beale becomes an overnight sensation as ratings begin to soar, transforming him from a has-been into the biggest thing on TV. Making its original on-stage debut in London, Network became a major success overseas, earning Cranston an Olivier Award for his portrayal of Beale. The upcoming Broadway run will feature Cranston in the leading role once more, this time alongside Emmy-Winning actress Tatiana Maslany in the role of amoral TV executive Diana Christensen. Network makes its Big Apple debut on November 10, with an official Broadway opening scheduled for December 6.
