The musical is based on the 1950 film All About Eve and the short story on which the movie is based, Mary Orr‘s “The Wisdom of Eve“. The story centers on aging star Margo Channing, who innocently takes a fledgling actress under her wing, unaware that the ruthless Eve is plotting to steal her career and her man.  The musical opened on Broadway on March 30, 1970, and ran for 896 performances.
