Frost/Nixon Ready For Broadway Close-Up Tonight

Frost/Nixon Ready For Broadway Close-Up Tonight

After earning accolades across the pond -- including three Olivier Award nominations -- Peter Morgan's new play Frost/Nixon finally completes its transfer from London to Broadway, opening this evening at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. Michael Grandage (West End's Evita and Guys And Dolls) makes his directorial debut on the Great White Way with this drama.

Frost/Nixon centers on the only U.S. President to resign from scandal, who sought some level of redemption by agreeing to be interviewed by noted talk show host David Frost. Frank Langella portrays Richard Nixon opposite Michael Sheen (Tony Blair in "The Queen") as Frost.

Will American critics offer the same high level of praise as their British counterparts, or is a frostier reception in store? Find out tomorrow as I report on their reviews.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
