Tatiana Maslany on how starring in Broadway's Network changed the way she consumes media
Originally published on January 23, 2019
"I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore" is the famous line from the 1976 film Network. It won four Oscars for its satirical look at television and the news media. Now that movie has been reworked for the Broadway stage, with Bryan Cranston in the lead role as news anchor Howard Beale.
Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany also stars in the production, making her Broadway debut in the role of Diana Christensen. She joined Tom Power from New York to talk about taking the stage and why the themes of Network still resonate more than 40 years after the film came out.
Network runs at the Belasco Theatre in New York through to the end of April.
