Tatiana Maslany Joins Broadway Cast of Network
Emmy-winning Orphan Black actress Tatiana Maslany will make her Broadway debut in the West End transfer of Network this fall. Maslany will star as Diana Christensen, a ratings-obsessed news producer, in a role originated by Faye Dunaway in the original 1976 film. Tony winner Bryan Cranston (All the Way, TV’s Breaking Bad) also stars as Howard Beale, reprising the role from London’s National Theatre production.
Network begins performances November 10 at Broadway’s Belasco Theatre, with opening night set for December 6. Ivo Van Hove (A View From the Bridge) will direct, from a script adapted by fellow Tony winner Lee Hall (Billy Elliot), based on the Oscar-winning film by Paddy Chayefsky. More details here.
