Kevin Spacey Announces Plans To Raise £20m For Old Vic
Kevin Spacey, the artistic director of the Old Vic, has revealed plans to raise £20m for the theatre before his tenure expires in 2015.
He told the Telegraph: "I'm now planning to leave in 2015 and am determined to raise £20million by then as an endowment fund to make the theatre fit for the 21st century.
"We can then use the £20million to give us £1million-a-year income to help refurbish the theatre - like more ladies' loos and more bar room."
The star of The Usual Suspects has not yet expanded on how he intends to raise the money, but he used the British premiere of his new film, House of Cards, as a fundraiser for the theatre.
