About NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage
One of the most esteemed actors of our generation together with one of the most distinguished directors, and a mix of dedicated theater actors and legends, brings to life one of the more remarkable theatre productions about the nature of power. Kevin Spacey, Sam Mendes and the Bridge Project Company go on the road in NOW across 3 continents and over 200 performances, revealing some of the most intimate moments behind the scenes of their staging of Richard III.
Beginning in 2011 at London’s Old Vic Theatre, 20 American and British actors accepted the challenge of performing in a new venue in an unknown city every few weeks. Traveling through the Arabian Desert, across the Great Wall of China, to the ancient Greek amphitheatre Epidavros in the same spot where Julius Caesar once watched plays, the company’s odyssey ends 10 months later in Brooklyn, New York. In each city we are treated to an intimate look into the incredible journey through process and performance as the actors entertain us with stories of their experience.
Witness Spacey’s revelatory interpretation of Richard III in each brief excerpts from the play. For those who have never seen Spacey on stage this is a rare opportunity.
NOW chronicles the first collaboration between Spacey and Mendes since both won Oscars for their work on American Beauty.
