About

"ENTERTAINING!
Sharp-witted…smartly staged"
--The Washington Post
 
"POWERFUL!
Absorbing and cunningly entertaining"
--The Washington Times
 
"SLEEKLY POLISHED!
The production gets its dramatic heft from Stacy Keach's sturdy work as Nixon. As Frost, Alan Cox projects…charm, vigor and intelligence."
--Houston Chronicle

"Rich, multi-layered…cleverly constructed. Keach is powerful as Nixon. Cox captures all the insouciance, suavity, and street smarts of the amiable Frost."
--The Examiner
