WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
New City Stage Company is thrilled to present FROST/NIXON, the follow-up to our sold-out hit RFK. As we move form the 1960s to the 1970s in American Presidential politics, we hope you'll join us this winter for this exciting, edge-of-your-seat drama. Starring Russ Widdall (Bobby Kennedy in RFK, HBO's "The Wire") and Dan Olmstead as Richard Nixon (Walnut Street Theatre's Good People, film Philadelphia), this televison-interview-turned-stage-drama shows that he who controls he cameras reaps the spoils.
About the show: A briskly entertaining true account of the 1977 face-off between British talk show host David Frost and disgraced President Richard Nixon, each striving to unnerve and unravel the other in front of an audience of millions on television.
