Frost/Nixon, by Peter Morgan
A Must-See!
Wednesday, March 3, 2010
4.5
Bravo to director Jerry Harlow and the cast and crew of Frost/Nixon! As a director, rarely do I sit and watch a play without re-directing it in my head. I was mesmerized almost from the start.

As it slowly builds, Frost/Nixon finds its pace and drive once the two characters begin their on- and off-screen battles. Whit Davies is nothing less than brilliant in making the complex character of Nixon come to life. Thomas Strickland as Frost deftly buries his doubts beneath his playboy image. Both men fully inhabit their roles to the point that the verbal battles between the two at the show�s climax feel as intense as the real thing.

Mark Olsen, Zip Rampy, Jeremy Southwell and Arif Ali offer up remarkable supporting roles that add depth and richness to their characters even when the focus is on Frost and Nixon.

In the end, this smart and well-paced production scores with the intensity and immediacy of the two main performers.
