London: Jeff Goldblum and Laura Michelle Kelly will join Kevin Spacey in the upcoming Old Vic production of David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow.
The play will begin previews on February 1, 2008 with opening night set for the 12th. The creative team includes direction by Matthew Warchus, design by Rob Howell, and lighting design by Paul Pyant.
Hollywood producers Bobby Gould (Jeff Goldblum) and Charlie Fox (Kevin Spacey) engage in a verbal boxing match centered around the eternal debate of art versus money. Should Gould put on another bad blockbuster that will make his fortune, or put himself on the line for an adaptation of a spiritual, apocalyptic novel offered to him by his beautiful secretary (Laura Michelle Kelly)? In this tale of greed, seduction and power, everything he believes in will be put to the test.
