Old Vic ‘radically different’
The artistic director of The Old Vic has said the London theatre is a “radically different” place since the departure of Kevin Spacey – and that the public now recognises the venue is more than simply “a famous figurehead”.
Spacey, a two-time Oscarwinner, was a star before some 20 people accused him of inappropriate behaviour in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal in October 2017.
Matthew Warchus, who took over from Spacey in 2015, has overseen a radical transformation of the Southbank venue and said: “This is a radically different place. It is much more continuously alive and more adventurous.”
