Network, Starring Bryan Cranston, Releases New Photos
Director Ivo van Hove's adaptation of the 1976 Academy Award-winning film opens December 6 at the Belasco Theatre.
New photos of Bryan Cranston in director Ivo van Hove's production of Network, currently in previews at Broadway's Belasco Theatre, have been released.
Written by Lee Hall and based on the 1976 Paddy Chayefsky film, the production ran at London's National Theatre November 2017-March 2018. Cranston earned an Olivier Award for his performance as news anchor Howard Beale.
Cranston stars alongside Tatiana Maslany and Tony Goldwyn. The company also includes Joshua Boone, Alyssa Bresnahan, Ron Canada, Julian Elijah Martinez, Frank Wood, Nick Wyman, Barzin Akhavan, Jason Babinsky, Camila Canó Flaviá, Eric Chayefsky, Gina Daniels, Nicholas Guest, Joe Paulik, Susannah Perkins, Victoria Sendra, Henry Stram, Bill Timoney, Joseph Varca, Nicole Villamil, and Jeena Yi.
Network is described as follows: "Howard Beale, news anchorman, isn't pulling in the viewers. In his final broadcast he unravels live on screen. But when the ratings soar, the network seize on their newfound populist prophet, and Howard becomes the biggest thing on TV. Network depicts a dystopian media landscape where opinion trumps fact."
The production features scenic and lighting design by Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D'Huys, video design by Tal Yarden, and music and sound by Eric Sleichim.
Opening night is set for December 6.
