Keri Russell Knows ‘All About Eve’

November 11th, 2008 // 1 Comment

Sweet-faced Keri Russell took on the iconic role of Eve Harrington for the reading of All About Eve with Annette Bening starring opposite as Margo Channing. The one-night-only event was held at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on Broadway.

Loving the low-maintenance but elegant look she’s wearing to play the role of the scheming up-and-coming theater actress. Cause nothing says “I’m angling for your career” like some soft waves , black strapless top and a charcoal gray pencil skirt. At least, that’s how I’ve always played that game.

Other actors reading for the evening were Peter Gallagher (who delivered a monologue with his eyebrows alone), Brian Bedford, Angela Lansbury…as the teapot. Kidding! But yes, she did read. Cynthia Nixon, Joel Grey, Zoe Caldwell, Jennifer Tilly and John Slattery also participated.

And how about that Jennifer Tilly. That woman is sass in a dress.

    Annette needs to cut her hair. It adds about 10 years to her age.
