Kevin Spacey Set To Perform One-Man Play 'Clarence Darrow' In June!

Kevin Spacey is hitting Queens in New York this summer to perform a one-man play about Clarence Darrow, the famous attorney who represented Tennessee high school teacher John Scopes in the Scopes Monkey Trial.

The play, titled Clarence Darrow, made its Broadway premiere in 1974. The 57-year-old actor starred in the play when it premiered at The Old Vic in London and will make its New York debut at Arthur Ashe Stadium on June 15 and 16.

“I jumped at the opportunity of tackling this character again, as I continue to find his rich, sympathetic personality and fertile mind intriguing, even though by now he is a character that I have come to know very well,” Kevin said in a statement. “I also feel the play is uplifting – an examination of the best in all of us. This is especially significant when so many of the things we observe and are confronted with in this world highlight the worst of humanity.”

Tickets are available now here!
