Old Vic ‘rad­i­cally dif­fer­ent’

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

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.”
