Nixonian Nostalgia

Another Broadway double header day for me.


This afternoon's matinee was Nixon/Frost about the mid-1970s series of interviews of the disgraced ex-president by British television host David Frost. The show is in its final week before closing, but Ron Howard is tackling a filmed version with same principals in August. Frank Langella won the Tony for Best Actor earlier this year for his role as Richard Nixon, and it did seem as though he was channeling our 37th president on stage. I was lucky to be seated in the fourth row, center, in the orchestra section. The production featured brilliant performances and was a very thoughtful play.
