Kevin Spacey to star as Richard III

Date Posted: 25/03/2011

Kevin Spacey will star in the title role of Shakespeare’s Richard III when it opens at The Old Vic in June.

The production, directed by Sam Mendes, marks the final season of The Bridge Project - a three-year series of co-productions devoted to producing large-scale, classical theatre for international audiences.

Previewing at The Old Vic, London from the 18th June and running until the 11th September, the production will go on to play at BAM’s Harvey Theatre in New York from 10th January to 4th March next year.

Commenting on the final season of The Bridge Project, Sam Mendes says: “I am absolutely delighted to be working with Kevin again for the first time since American Beauty, and I am doubly thrilled that he will be leading year three of The Bridge Project. Richard III is a play I love, and a role I think Kevin is born to play.”

Tickets for Richard III at The Old Vic are now available.
