Frost/Nixon Story

In 1972, a break in was foiled at the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate Hotel in Washington DC. Within days a connection had been made between the thieves and the White House and to President Nixon's closest aids. It unleashed one of the greatest scandals in modern American politics and ended with Nixon's humiliating resignation. [IMG:L]David Frost's interviews with Richard Nixon drew the largest audience of a news interview ever. Could this British talk show host, with no political convictions and a playboy reputation, be the one to elicit an apology from the man who committed one of the biggest felonies in American political history? Prior to coming to Broadway, Frost/Nixon enjoyed a transfer engagement in London's West End following a sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse. Langella and Sheen, who reprise their roles here, each received Best Actor Olivier Award nominations for their performances.
