Highlights From Richard III Starring Kevin Spacey

Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey takes the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Harvey stage as the jealous and ambitious hunchback-who-would-be-king in William Shakespeare's Richard III. Presented by The Bridge Project, a classical repertory company created by BAM, The Old Vic (where Spacey serves as artistic director) and director Sam Mendes' Neal Street Productions, the classic play gets a layer of modern political media with the addition of black-and-white newsreel footage, video simulcasts and projected titles. Haydn Gwynne (Billy Elliot), Isaiah Johnson (The Merchant of Venice) and Chandler Williams (In the Next Room, or the vibrator play)) round out the British-American cast.
