Spacey Triumphs As Richard III

Kevin Spacey, who long ago cornered the market in oily schemers, has opened to unsurprisingly strong reviews in “Richard III.” The final production of the three-year transatlantic Bridge Project between New York’s Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), London’s Old Vic, and Sam Mendes‘ Neal Street Production opened last night in London, with Kevin Spacey reunited with Mendes for the first time since their Oscar-winning 1999 blockbuster “American Beauty.” Unlike the Bridge Project‘s first two seasons, “Richard III” is a lone offering which plays the Old Vic with its transatlantic cast prior to an international tour and a New York run from January 2012.
