The theater aims to raise funds to stay active, with their site reporting, all their normal income sources are totally washed out, and they struggle to maintain this cherished theater for their fans, the local schools and neighborhoods, the workers, the team, and the multitude of authors, artists and creators who collaborate alongside them.
The Old Vic is the catalyst to several of London's creative arts groups and theatres. It was the name of a repertoire company that was based at the theater and established, along with the Chichester Festival Theater, the nucleus of the British National Theater during its foundation in 1963, under Laurence Olivier. The National Theater stayed in the Old Vic until new facilities were established on the South Side, which opened in 1976.

The Old Vic then became the headquarters of Prospect Theatre Company, a widely popular tour company that performed celebrated plays such as Derek Jacobi's Hamlet. However, with the loss of support for the business by the Arts Council of Great Britain in 1980 for violation of its tour commitments, Prospect was disbanded in 1981. The theater was fully refurbished in 1985.
Kevin Spacey was named creative director in 2003 and gained significant media coverage. Spacey worked as Artistic Director until 2015; two years following his departure, he was convicted of sexual misconduct and abuse on multiple victims.
