Veteran stage actor Stacy Keach as Richard Nixon and the stellar Alan Cox as David Frost were a brilliant duo in this production of “Frost/Nixon.” With their exceptionally profound talents and invigorating energy, they tell the story of the British TV show host Frost and his nail biting, on-the-edge-of-your-seat interview of then impeached President Nixon, where he presses Nixon to confess his involvement and participation in the Watergate scandal.

The stage was designed with minimal furnishing except for an enormous screen hung center stage to give a lifelike experience of the actual televised interview. The two-hour production, with plenty of humor intertwined with the weight of history, leaves with you a mixture of sentiments for a country and for a man setting up his own demise and eventual fate.
