David Frost Nixon Theater New York Schedule
Tue & Sat 2pm
Tue Through Sat 8pm
Frost/Nixon, the play written by Peter Morgan – a British screenwriter and dramatist - is based on one of the most immense television interviews ever, that occurred 30 years ago. The subject of the play is a series of interviews ex-president Richard M. Nixon granted David Frost – the famous British talk show host - on television in 1977. Nixon’s tacit admission of guilt for his role in the infamous Watergate scandal was the center point of the interviews.
This play, directed by Michael Grandage deals with the question of how David Frost managed to extract an apology from the former disgraced United States President. This was something the rest of the world always expected to hear from Richard Nixon, and the tacit apology came three years after his resignation.
The two main characters in the cast of 10 are Frank Langella – who portrays Richard Nixon, and Michael Sheen (the celebrated stage and film actor) – who portrays David Frost.
The fast paced play is scheduled for a limited run up to 20 weeks only and previewed on March 31, 2007 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater, formerly known as the Royale Theater. It is slated to open on April 22, 2007 and close on August 19, 2007.
