Politics meets the press as a smooth, confident, and recently pardoned Richard M. Nixon played by Michael MacCauley’s (ANNAPURNA, ANGELS IN AMERICA, JEEVES) goes head to head with British tele-journalist David Frost, played by Willie Repoley (ALL IS CALM, ANGELS IN AMERICA).
Charged with giving Nixon the trial he never had, Frost is joined by passionate American author and political historian Jim Reston, played by Scott Keel (OTHER DESERT CITIES), British socialite Caroline Cushing, played by Carin Metzger (AS YOU LIKE IT), and British television producer John Birt, portrayed by Ben Mackel (KING MACKEREL),
Nixon’s chief of staff Jack Brennan, played by Catori Swann (IN THE NEXT ROOM, PERICLES PRINCE OF TYRE) sees Frost as a featherweight entertainment personality struggling to maintain celebrity and an easy mark for Nixon’s political savvy. Nixon’s team agrees to what would become one of the most infamous political interviews of our nation’s history.
The cast of FROST/NIXON welcomes NC Stage newcomers Samantha LeBrocq (IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE, Immediate Theatre Project; BOEING-BOEING, Parkway Playhouse) as Evonne Goolagong/Air Stewardess/Waitress/Camera Operator, Marc Cameron (THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK, Asheville Community Theater) as Swifty Lazaar/Mike Wallace/Technician/Studio Manager, John Gripentrog (FOOL FOR LOVE, Powerhouse Theatre) as Bob Zelnick/Studio Manager, and Chandler Vance (National Theatre Institute; TWO GENTLEMAN of VERONA, Asbury University) as Manolo Sanchez/Technician.
Directed by Angie Flynn-McIver
