American Associates

The Old Vic has been influencing the landscape of British and world theatre for over 200 years. From John Gielgud, Laurence Olivier and Judi Dench to Kristin Scott Thomas, Sheila Atim and John Boyega, The Old Vic has always attracted the best creative talent. Bernard Shaw reviewed plays here. Olivier said it had ‘the most powerful actor/audience relationship in the world’ and it was the first theatre to perform the complete works of Shakespeare as a series.

Under the leadership of Matthew Warchus, The Old Vic continues to entertain, educate and inspire. Through an exciting and varied programme of work that reflects the theatre’s rich history of great acting, dance, music, vaudeville and spectacle, The Old Vic is nurturing a new love of theatre while continuing to appeal to the more experienced theatregoer.

Over the past ten years, the American Associates of The Old Vic (AAOV) have been instrumental in supporting the work of this extraordinary institution. And because the AAOV is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, American taxpayers, wherever they live, are able to enjoy the benefits of membership in London, New York, and on tour. AAOV plays an important part in forging transatlantic partnerships and associations that enable American work to be seen in London and British work in New York, a transatlantic exchange of creative talent would not be possible without the help of the American Associates.
