Kevin Spacey’s Old Vic theatre company will produce it’s first West End show this summer, as a new production of Neil Simon’s 1971 comedy The Prisoner of Second Avenue comes to town.

The play will star Hollywood actor Jeff Goldblum for a limited season at the Vaudeville Theatre from 13 July.

Terry Johnson will direct the show, whose credits include current Broadway hit La Cage Aux Folles with Kelsey Grammer, The Graduate with Kathleen Turner and Rain Man with Josh Hartnett.

Goldblum and Spacey are old friends, and appeared together at the Old Vic in 2008 in a revival of Speed-the-Plow.

“This is such an exciting development for the Old Vic and brings so many strong relationships together”, said Old Vic artistic director Kevin Spacey.
