FROST/NIXON in Portland, OR

I am pleased to announce that I have been cast as David Frost in Portland Center Stage‘s upcoming production of FROST/NIXON.

The play, by Peter Morgan, is the basis for the Oscar-nominated film of the same name starring Michael Sheen (Frost) and Frank Langella (Nixon).

The show will play
April 14 – May 10.

From the PCS website:

Can a lightweight, has-been talk show host lead the most infamous political figure of his time to publicly acknowledge his guilt? That is the central question raised in Peter Morgan’s delicious drama about a series of televised interviews that former president Richard Nixon granted British journalist David Frost in 1977. The New York Times described the play as “proceed[ing] with the momentum of a ticking-bomb thriller and the zing of a boulevard comedy…structured as a prize fight between two starkly ambitious men in professional crisis, FROST/NIXON makes it clear that the competitor who controls the camera reaps the spoils.”
