Summary
Set in the world of theater, with its temperamental and insecure personalities and actors who don't know when to stop acting, this is a story of pretense and fantasy. Breathless fan Eve Harrington worms her way into the confidence of Broadway star Margo Channing. Eve becomes first her secretary, then her understudy, then her rival. Only one person sees through Eve's act: Birdie, Margo's wardrobe woman. Survivors of Eve's savage climb to the top include theater critic Addison DeWitt, director Bill Sampson, playwright Lloyd Richards and his wife Karen
