Considering its high profile as both play and film, it wouldnt be unfair to assume that everyone knows that Frost/Nixon is about the series of televised interviews between former President Richard Nixon and talk-show personality David Frost. Even people too young to recall the interviews, which aired in this country in 1977, have certainly become aware (thanks to the plays grand showing at this years Tony Awards and the films several Oscar nods) that the Frost interviews were as close as Nixon got to an admission of guilt regarding his role in the Watergate scandal. But maybe not. According to a recent Internet survey, 23 percent of those polled thought that it was a musical about political warfare set in wintertime, and 12 percent thought it was a play about actress Cynthia Nixon being pissed off.
Regardless of what you think it may be about, the road company of Peter Morgans Frost/Nixon, starring Stacy Keach and Alan Cox, is worth your time.
