The Associated Press reports that the production, which began life at London's Old Vic Theatre, will feature the two-time Academy Award winner as well as his London co-stars Eve Best and Colm Meaney. Previews will begin at the Brooks Atkinson March 29, 2007, with an official opening April 9.
Howard Davies, who directed the London production at the Old Vic — where Spacey is artistic director — will repeat his duties for the Broadway production. Spacey will again play James Tyrone Jr. in the play, which will mark this third O'Neill on Broadway. The actor was previously seen in Long Day's Journey Into Night and The Iceman Cometh.
The London production of Moon will end its run at the Old Vic Dec. 23.
Kevin Spacey won a Tony Award for his performance in Neil Simon's Lost in Yonkers and was Tony-nominated for his work in The Iceman Cometh. His other Broadway credits include Long Day's Journey Into Night, Hurlyburly and Ghosts. A two-time Oscar winner for his performances in "American Beauty" and "The Usual Suspects," Spacey is currently the artistic director of London's Old Vic Theatre.
