Directed by Ivo van Hove, Network is adapted by Lee Hall, based on the Oscar-winning film of the same name by Paddy Chayefsky. In the play, anchorman Howard Beale (Cranston) struggles to pull in viewers—but when he unravels live on screen in his final broadcast, the ratings soar, and the network seizes on their newfound populist prophet.
Rounding out the cast are Frank Wood, Joshua Boone, Alyssa Bresnahan, Ron Canada, Julian Elijah Martinez, Nick Wyman, Barzin Akhavan, Jason Babinsky, Camila Cano-Flavia, Eric Chayefsky, Gina Daniels, Nicholas Guest, Joe Paulik, Susannah Perkins, Victoria Sendra, Henry Stram, Bill Timoney, Joseph Varca, Nicole Villamil, and Jeena Yi.
Network features scenic and lighting design by three-time Tony and Olivier nominee Jan Versweyveld (A View From the Bridge, The Damned), video design by Tal Yarden (Lazarus), costume design by An D'Huys (A View From The Bridge), and music and sound by Olivier Award nominee Eric Sleichim (The Damned)—all frequent collaborators with van Hove.
