Hi Friends,
Welcome to the next installment of Page to Stage!

This month brings a doozy, with eerie echoes in today’s media and political landscapes.

British playwright Peter Morgan’s Frost/Nixon (London 2006, New York 2007, Ron Howard’s film 2008) tells the story of a series of interviews staged by fading entertainment figure David Frost with disgraced former President Richard Nixon in 1977. It’s a familiar confrontation, for those of us who recall it. Frost clearly wanted a way back into stardom (even relevance) and Nixon clearly wanted some sense of vindication, not merely for what he had done but for so many years of advisors and handlers telling him that TV had sunk his image. But the play gets at a lot more than just the interview: and maybe, yet again, the medium is the message.

We’re curious how you think about it and we welcome you to the Page to Stage discussion, Sunday, May 19, immediately following the first matinee performance, in the Artist Lab.

Scripts are available through Amazon Services. The theater does get a small portion of this (similar to how Amazon Smile used to work), and we’d appreciate the contribution, but you’re still free to make your own arrangements.

The Artist Lab is also hosting a FREE Premiere Event for opening night, May 17, 5-7pm. Enjoy our opening night kick-off complete with the Twisted Pig food truck, your favorite drinks, LIVE music, and a chance to meet Frost/Nixon director, Traci Sprague at 5:30PM. If you’re in town Friday night, this promises to be a terrific event – you’ll pay for the food and booze, but the joy is free!

We’ll have another installment shortly and we look forward to seeing you at Page to Stage,

Shannon, Linda, Scott
