In this day in age, Kevin Spacey sells. And rightly so. Surprisingly, ten years ago he moved from the US to London to become the Artistic Director of The Old Vic theatre in Waterloo. This is the same man that was riding off the back of the multi-award winning role of Lester Burnham in American Beauty. Many called him crazy, but visiting The Old Vic, it’s easy to see why he fell in love with it. Celebrating ten years, and marking the end of his time as Artistic Director, Spacey returns to the stage for a one-man spectacular performing as notorious American lawyer and civil libertarian, Clarence Darrow. Double Oscar winner Spacey, 54, played the same character on stage in Inherit The Wind and 22 years ago in the PBS film Darrow, whose director John David Coles has recently directed Spacey in three episodes of House of Cards. The 3,000 plus people who queued online to get a ticket on the day of release are being treated to something they will not witness again - Kevin Spacey doing what he does best, for ninety minutes, not on the screen, but in the flesh.
