I went into this performance with high expectations and this show did not disappoint. It was fast-paced, humorous, and poignant. Stacy Keach did a wonderful job as Richard Nixon and Alan Cox more than kept up with him. The supporting cast was very...continued

We had seats in the third row left. We heard all the lines very clearly. The show was very well done. The exchanges between Frost and Nixon were believable and riveting. Good acting. Two hours with no intermission, but moved quickly.

We loved it. Having lived through it, it was great to see how the actors portrayed those times on stage. The story was fast moving and beautifully written. Would love to know what Nixon would have thought!!

Description

Frost/Nixon, written by Peter Morgan—the writer of the award-winning films The Queen and The Last King of Scotland—tackles the question: How did David Frost, a famous British talk-show host with a playboy reputation, elicit the apology that the rest of the world was waiting to hear from former President Richard Nixon? With a cast of 10 led by Golden Globe winner Stacy Keach, this fast-paced production was nominated for three 2007 Tony Awards including Best New Play. Directed by Olivier Award winner Michael Grandage, Frost/Nixon chillingly recounts one of the most monumental television interviews of all time.
