Frost / Nixon Summary

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? With a cast of ten led by Tony Award® winner Frank Langella and celebrated stage and film actor Michael Sheen (Tony Blair in The Queen), this fast-paced new play, directed by Olivier Award winner Michael Grandage, shows the determination, conviction and cunning of two men as they square off in one of the most monumental television interviews of all time. Frost / Nixon is written by Peter Morgan (the writer of the award-winning films The Queen and The Last King of Scotland).

Frost / Nixon Special Information

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.

Two-time Tony Award-winner Frank Langella plays Richard Nixon. Michael Sheen plays David Frost. The award-winning actor can be seen currently in Peter Morgan’s film, The Queen, portraying Prime Minister Tony Blair (BAFTA nomination, Actor is a Supporting Role).

Frost/Nixon is Peter Morgan’s first stage play and was developed with Matthew Byam Shaw. His screenplay for The Queen starring Helen Mirren and Michael Sheen has garnered Morgan Golden Globe, Venice Film Festival, New York Film Critics, Los Angeles Film Critics, and British Independent Film for Best Screenplay.
