As previously reported, 2007 Tony Award winner Frank Langella and Michael Sheen will reprise their stage roles as former U.S President RIchard Nixon and British talk show host David Frost, who conducted a series of television interviews with Nixon in 1977, in which Nixon talked frankly about the Watergate scandal.
