Bryan Cranston returns to Broadway as Howard Beale, a TV news anchor whose on-air rants draw big ratings and off-air controversies. In a media world dominated by opinion not fact, Beale becomes a populist prophet, whom some believe must be stopped. Mad as hell, he’s not going to take it anymore. Ivo van Hove directs the National Theatre production of Lee Hall’s play, adapted from Paddy Chayefsky’s 1976 Academy Award-winning screenplay. Tatiana Maslany co-stars as Diana Christensen.
