Kevin Spacey seeks to boost Mideast theater
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey is hoping to foster dramatic talent in the Middle East with a new theater arts academy.
The joint venture by the Kevin Spacey Foundation and another group led by an Emirati business tycoon plans to offer workshops and classes in every aspect of theater from acting to stage design. The mission also seeks to bring Mideast content to international venues such as Broadway.
Spacey, who is artistic director of London's Old Vic Theater, unveiled The Middle East Theater Academy on Sunday in Dubai. The academy will not have a specific base, but will take up projects across the region.
Spacey is in the United Arab Emirates to host the Laureus sports awards on Monday in Abu Dhabi.
