Earlier this year, the RiverPark Center in Owensboro built the touring production of the play, “Frost/Nixon.” The show opened on Broadway in 2007 after debuting in London.
The movie version of “Frost/Nixon” opens today in limited release, then opens nationwide next week. The stage play and screenplay were written by Peter Morgan, who also wrote “The Queen” and “The Last King of Scotland. The movie was directed by Ron Howard.
“Frost/Nixon” is about a series of interviews between British TV personality David Frost and former U.S. President Richard Nixon. The film stars Michael Sheen as Frost and Frank Langella as Nixon. Both men originated the roles on Broadway, and Langella won a Tony for his performance.
