The production gets its dramatic heft from Stacy Keach's sturdy work as Nixon. As Frost, Alan Cox projects…charm, vigor and intelligence."
"Rich, multi-layered…cleverly constructed. Keach is powerful as Nixon. Cox captures all the insouciance, suavity, and street smarts of the amiable Frost."
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. Performance Time: 2 hours, without intermission
