KEVIN SPACEY’S time as artis­tic di­rec­tor of Lon­don’s Old Vic theatre has had its trou­bles — none more trou­bling than the late Robert Alt­man’s dis­as­trous pro­duc­tion of Arthur Miller’s Res­ur­rec­tion Blues, which led to the theatre go­ing dark and calls for his res­ig­na­tion. But since then, the rise of Spacey and his theatre has been steady. Next year the up­ward curve should con­tinue with the an­tic­i­pated re­vival of David Mamet’s Hol­ly­wood satire Speed the Plow, es­pe­cially if the ru­mour that Spacey has landed fel­low Hol­ly­wood star Jeff Gold­blum to add gen­uine wow fac­tor to the pro­duc­tion proves to be true. If Spacey is go­ing to use his pulling power in Hol­ly­wood, the mind bog­gles at the cast­ing coups in store.
