Getting Spacey At The Old Vic

His tenure got off to a wobbly start when a production he directed, Cloaca, by Dutch playwright Maria Goos, received a critical mauling, although advance ticket sales were impressive. Months earlier a major presentation in which Spacey announced his plans for the Old Vic, one of the nation’s most historic theatres, was overshadowed by tabloid probing about a strange incident in a nearby park” where Spacey said he was mugged.
