Kevin Spacey plows the speed at the Old Vic


Remember when Kevin Spacey was the embattled artistic director of the Old Vic? Less than two years ago, as they struggled to forget the almost An Audience With the Mafia-calibre Resurrection Blues, critics were calling for the one-time film star's resignation from the post.

Well, with David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow the latest Old Vic production to please the critics, it's getting harder to remember a time when Spacey was under fire rather than on fire. The West End Whingers give credit where credit is due in their blog review of the show: "Conclusion: a veritable hit - that's three in a row for Spacey (All About My Mother, Cinderella) who is seemingly getting into his stride in his tenure as 'artistic' director at the Old Vic."
