Cast was superb. The entire play made it all real one more time. When you live through these parts of history it's good to take a look at them again and review attitudes and emotions. This play does that and more! This is one of THE BEST plays...continued

The newsclips shown just as the audience was settling in pulled us back to the era and tension of Watergate. Like reliving the past. Staging was inventive and made great use of space. The characters were so real it was like going back in time. ...continued

Excellent cast - the news clips, inventive use of space, script and cast really came together and put us back in the Watergate era. Really got caught up in the drama. The leads and everyone else were very believable in their roles.

Gripping. Fascinating. Very well acted. Highly recommended. Note, no intermission and it runs about 1 hr and 40 minutes.

This show took me back to a different time. I was a teenager when all this happend and the old ghosts of Watergate were present. The actors all gave a wonderful performence.

I really enjoyed seeing this performance. The actors were all perfect in their roles - great casting - and I learned something that I didn't know (that Nixon apologized to America for what he did and acknowledged he was wrong).

We have loved everything we have ever seen at the Maverick. This was no exception. The leads were particularly outstanding, and the intimate setting made the experience all the more impactful. Highly recommended.

It was a brilliant production in every way - the set design, the actors, etc.
Would love to see it extended so I can get my friends there. This is not an amateur effort !

I thought the play was great. I was wondering what can be done in a play from what have been done in the movie. It was brilliant that the actors performed monologues and explained to the audience what are going on for each event at different...continued

Really enjoyed this show. The acting was phenominal! I thought I had seen this play in Los Angeles and remember being bored to tears; however, either the script was rewritten or I didn't see the same play. I recall only two characters on stage...continued

Outstanding production! Amazing performances all around, especially Joe Parrish as Richard Nixon. Direction was tight and the underscoring and the video screens were very effective. This is a must see!

Decided to go to this performance after reading a favorable review in the OC Register. The actors were excellent-I would highly recommend it. Kudos to the Maverick as a wonderful example of top notch community theatre.

The combined experience between the traditional audio (music), video of historical events via flat screen TVs as well as the subperb acting was simply terrific. The 5 primary actors brought energy and understanding to a difficult portral of Nixon...continued

It was very, very good. We enjoyed the way it was presented, however, don't sit in the first row.

This is an intense 98 minute production of the Frost/Nixon interviews. The way the production is staged on a catwalk in the center of the audience draws you intimately into their conversations. The director has expertly designed it so the...continued

Compelling performance giving insights into Nixon's complex persona. In the process, Frost's growth from a passive interviewer of little importance at first to one who ultimately takes control changed both their lives. The two leads are...continued
