Kevin Spacey Ends His 11 Year Tenure at The Old Vic

By   /   2 years ago

Stars from both worlds (Theatre and Screen) paid tribute to Kevin Spacey as his 11 year tenure at the Old Vic theatre, London came to an end on April 19, reports Reuters.

The actor turned artistic director changed the meaning of theatre and screen for many around the globe. He incorporated actors from around the world without any discrimination.

Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville hosted the special Gala and had some amazing words to say about Spacey.

“Not only has he brought his own stage talent as an actor to The Old Vic and given it that bit of Hollywood glamour, if you like, because he is such an amazing stage, as well as screen, actor, but he’s really dug the roots of The Old Vic deeper than they were before. They’ve brought actors from America, actors from Britain together and have spread that stage talent all over the world, so where do you start? He can do everything. And he can play the harmonica.”

Guests at the Gala included Eddie Izzard, Mark Gatiss, Jeremy Irons and Elizabeth McGovern. Sting performed their famous and loved song ‘Every Breath You Take’ along with another one. On the other hand Annie Lennox, hummed No More I Love You’s and Here Comes the Rain Again.

Spacey featured in nine productions and directed two, including the acclaimed ‘Richard III’ during his tenure. Spacey concluded his speech by saying that the Old Vic lacks in counting theatre as “a national treasure”.

Well with Kevin Spacey ending his time at the Old Vic do we expect the origins, roots of theatre (which is beautiful and mesmerizing by the way) to disappear? Or has he done enough already?
