On the U.S. Bank Main Stage
By Peter Morgan
Directed by Rose Riordan
“I gave ‘em a sword. and they stuck it in, and they twisted it with relish. And I guess if I had been in their position, I’d have done the same thing.” – Richard Nixon
Can a lightweight, has-been talk show host lead the most infamous political figure of his time to publicly acknowledge his guilt? That is the central question raised in Peter Morgan’s delicious drama about a series of televised interviews that former president Richard Nixon granted British journalist David Frost in 1977. The New York Times described the play as “proceed[ing] with the momentum of a ticking-bomb thriller and the zing of a boulevard comedy…structured as a prize fight between two starkly ambitious men in professional crisis, Frost/Nixon makes it clear that the competitor who controls the camera reaps the spoils.”
