About Network

Tony, Olivier, Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad," "All The Way") makes his triumphant return to Broadway in the National Theatre’s sold-out, critically acclaimed production of "Network."

In Lee Hall’s adaptation of Paddy Chayefsky’s Academy Award-winning film, anchorman Howard Beale (Cranston) unravels live on-screen. But when the ratings soar, the network seizes on its newfound prophet, and Howard becomes the biggest thing on TV.

Cranston won the 2018 Olivier Award for his tour-de-force performance. Tony and Olivier-winner Ivo van Hove ("A View From the Bridge") directs this brilliantly innovative and electrifying production, also starring Tony Goldwyn ("Scandal") and Emmy Award winner Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black"). Ben Brantley of The New York Times raves, “Network thrills. It’s convulsive, immersive and still mad as hell. 'Network' feels as pertinent to our time as it did to its own.”

More information about Network

Adapted from the 1976 film of the same name, “Network” centers on a news anchor who brings in ratings because of his uncontrollable on-air anger. In the new play, which debuted at London’s National Theatre in November 2017 under the direction of Tony and Olivier Award winner Ivo van Hove.

Union Broadcasting System’s “UBS Evening News” anchorman Howard Beale (Bryan Cranston) is told that he’ll have to sign off indefinitely because of declining ratings. However, when he has a meltdown live on air in his final broadcast, viewers swarm the station — and producers decide to take advantage of its newfound audience, forcing Beale to rant on repeat. Playwright Lee Hall’s adaptation of Paddy Chayefsky’s screenplay examines what happens when the world tires of Beale’s tirades and the lines of fact and fiction begin to blur in his broadcast.

Recommended for ages 12 and up. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.

Leading man Bryan Cranston took home an Olivier Award for his performance as Howard Beale in the world-premiere production at London's National Theatre.

In 2007, the film “Network” ranked 64 in the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 greatest American films.

The 1976 film took home four Academy Awards, including Best Original Screenplay.
