The 1976 film, “Network,” written by Paddy Chayefsky and directed by Sidney Lumet won four Academy Awards and granted that and the following generations the indelible expression of utter frustration and mental collapse in Howard Beale's line: “I’m as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore.”

Lee Hall has adapted Chayefsky’s screenplay into a script for the stage which is a hit at Broadway’s Belasco Theatre. Directed by Ivo Van Hove, “Network” stars Bryan Cranston, Tony Goldwyn, Tatiana Maslany, and our guest, Joshua Boone.

Boone’s Broadway debut was in “Holler if Ya Hear Me” in 2014. In our region, he’s been seen at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in three productions over the last two years.
