Chit-Chattery with Edge: “Frost/Nixon”

We've all sat through plenty of interviews in our lives, mainly job interviews, but sometimes television appearances or conversations for an article or even a meal with prospective in-laws. And while they've all had their moments of tension, nothing in any of our lives has likely rivaled the heated tete-a-tete between television host David Frost and President Richard Nixon as imagined by playwright Peter Morgan. In short, Frost was looking to hear about the president's life in the White House, but the English presenter was looking, of course, for much more. The pauses, the insinuations, the moments of candor -- all brilliant, all thought-provoking, all fascinating.

In this version, Broadway vet Stacy Keach fill the president's wingtips, while accomplished British thespian Alan Cox takes on Frost. We're curious to see what the live production brings vs. the movie, which is fresh in so many people's minds, but we're also eager to see this show with no preconceived notions or expectations. Just pure drama, a dash of history, and two thinkers in a dance of words and intent.
