Frost/Nixon recently transferred to London's West End following a sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse. Prior to coming to Broadway, the production is playing at the Gielgud Theatre through February 3, 2007. Frank Langella and Michael Sheen have also each received Best Actor Olivier Award nominations for their roles in Frost/Nixon.
Frost/Nixon 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? The fast-paced new play shows the determination, conviction and cunning of two men as they square off in one of the most monumental political interviews of all time.
Michael Sheen is appearing with the permission of Actors' Equity Association. The Producers gratefully acknowledge Actors' Equity Association for its assistance of this production.
Designs for Frost/Nixon are by Christopher Oram, with lighting by Neil Austin, and the music & sound score by Adam Cork. Video design is by Jon Driscoll.
