Speaking of Kevin Spacey, he’s generated headlines himself this week following an interview in The Economist, in which he admitted waiving his annual artistic director’s salary of £100,000 in order to help keep the Old Vic solvent. He’s actively trying to raise £25 million to refurbish the historic theatre, which receives no public subsidy. After the premature closure of Robert Altman’s production of Arthur Miller’s Resurrection Blues and five months of darkness, which attracted heavy media criticism earlier this year (See News, 13 Apr 2006), the Old Vic reopens tonight (26 September 2006) with A Moon for the Misbegotten, in which Spacey stars alongside Olivier Award winner Eve Best and Colm Meaney.
