The Kid Stays in the Picture

The Kid Stays in the Picture

Categories: 

In the 1960s and 70s, Robert Evans became one of the most powerful figures in Hollywood. He saved Paramount Pictures from collapse and produced films including The Godfather and Chinatown. By the 1980s he was broke, with his personal and professional life spiraling at epic proportions. Director Simon McBurney explores the rise and fall of the legendary film producer against the backdrop of a changing America through the second half of the 20thcentury.

Royal Court announces cast for The Kid Stays in the Picture
Wednesday, January 18, 2017

The Royal Court Theatre have today announced casting for their upcoming production of The Kid Stays in the Picture based on the life story of legendary Hollywood producer Robert Evans directed by Simon McBurney which runs at the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs from 7 March to 8 April 2017, with an official opening on 15 March 2017.

Our Review

Theatrical biographies, especially of still living people, need to give you more than you could get than by meeting them, reading a newspaper interview, or their own autobiographies. In this new show, Simon McBurney and his co-director and co-adaptor James Yeatman try to turn the undeniably fascinating life story of Robert Evans, now 86, into a multi-media, multi-sensory experience.
