“Bryan Cranston is mad, bad, and scintillating to know!” The Telegraph
Bryan Cranston is heading back to Broadway! The Breaking Bad star is bringing his Olivier Award-winning performance as Howard Beale in Network to New York this fall.
Howard Beale is a veteran news anchor who isn’t pulling in the viewers. In his final broadcast, he unravels live on screen, yelling the famous line “I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore.” But when the ratings soar, the network seizes on their newfound populist prophet, and Howard becomes the biggest thing on TV.
Based on the iconic 1976 film which won four Academy Awards, Network depicts a dystopian media landscape where opinion trumps fact. The hilarious yet horrifying play premiered at London’s National Theatre last year to critical raves and audiences on their feet. The play is an immersive experience for its audience that uses stage devices and audio visual technology to make them participants in the production.
Cranston was last on Broadway in 2014’s All the Way, which won Tony Awards for Best Play and his performance as President Lyndon B. Johnson. He later reprised the role for the 2016 HBO film of the same name. He is best known as Walter White in television’s Breaking Bad series, for which he won 4 Emmy Awards. The producers are gushing, “The incomparable Bryan Cranston brings Howard Beale to brilliant life and we are so thrilled for American audiences to have the opportunity to experience his masterful performance and this spectacular new play.”
We’re excited as hell to have tickets for this happening. You know what to do to secure your spots!
