Watch Frost/Nixon’s appearance on WSYR’s Bridgestreet

“…in those moments that Nixon and Frost appear together, community theater surpasses its self-imposed “your friends and neighbors onstage” aesthetic and becomes Theater: capital T, no reductive adjective, just pure drama.”

 – Linda Lowen 

“L. Thomas Minion delivers one of the most crafted and nuanced performances of his admirable career…Technical proficiency helps to make Frost/Nixon an examination of the media as much as it is of presidential malfeasance.”
-James Mackillop, Syracuse NewTimes 

“In this day an age when television has been thoroughly overshadowed by the many media platforms available digitally, “Frost/Nixon” may well inspire nostalgia for that time when TV played so important a part of our lives both culturally and politically.”
-Russ Tarby, Eagle Bulletin

 British talk-show host David Frost has become a lowbrow laughing-stock. Richard M. Nixon has just resigned the United States presidency in total disgrace over Vietnam and the Watergate scandal. Determined to resurrect his career, Frost risks everything on a series of in-depth interviews in order to extract an apology from Nixon. The cagey Nixon, however, is equally bent on redeeming himself in his nation’s eyes. In the television age, image is king, and both men are desperate to out talk and upstage each other as the cameras roll. The result is the interview that sealed a president’s legacy.
