‘Frost/Nixon’

Autumn Offering

There is no fixed deal to transfer Michael Grandage’s Donmar Warehouse production of Peter Morgan’s play about the legendary 1977 television interviews between President Richard Nixon and interviewer David Frost. Yet several factors make a transfer likely.

Frank Langella, currently cresting another career high, is playing Nixon opposite Michael Sheen, whose Broadway turn as Mozart in “Amadeus” helped the production win the revival Tony in 2000.

Secondly, the play, the first by TV dramatist Morgan, has been developed over three years by independent producer Matthew Byam Shaw, who produced Grandage’s SRO transfer of “Don Carlos.” Thirdly, Broadway producer Arielle Tepper has a first-look deal with the Donmar.

The play, designed by Christopher Oram and opening at the Donmar on Aug. 15 with a 10-strong cast, is currently in rehearsals. As Grandage tells Variety, “It has a thriller-like tone, with the men fighting over TV dominance. It’s a gladiatorial battle between two men with their own agendas, with Frost determined to wring an apology from the ex-president.”
