TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: TheatreWorks Silicon Valley Presents a Thrilling Political Showdown: “Frost/Nixon”

Jan 04, 2019
TheatreWorks Silicon Valley will kick off the new year with the Tony and Olivier Award nominated drama “Frost/Nixon.” Written by Golden Globe winner Peter Morgan (creator of Netflix’s “The Crown”) “Frost/Nixon” is a riveting political prizefight where the cameras roll, the truth spins, and it becomes clear that he who controls the medium controls the message. With America caught in the riptides of Watergate and Vietnam, the former leader of the free world and a lightweight British talk-show host clash in a legendary series of TV interviews that will determine the President’s legacy forever. Directed by Leslie Martinson, “Frost/Nixon” will be presented January 16 through February 10, 2019 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts (500 Castro Street), Mountain View, CA.

TheatreWorks has assembled a stellar cast for this production, featuring Jeremy Webb as British talk show host David Frost and Allen McCullough as former president Richard Milhous Nixon, both making their TheatreWorks debuts. Webb has performed regionally in a number of theatre productions and has also been seen in roles on NBC’s “Law & Order,” “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” and “Law & Order: SVU,” as well as in CBS’s “Guiding Light.”

McCullough has been seen in HBO’s “Vinyl,” directed by Martin Scorsese, and in Amazon Prime Video’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” directed by Amy Sherman Palladino. He has also appeared onstage in Roundabout Theatre Company’s national tour of “Twelve Angry Men” and in productions by Long Wharf Theatre, Baltimore Center Stage, and the Folger Theatre.

Returning to TheatreWorks where he was seen as Mr. Bingley in this summer’s workshop of “Pride and Prejudice,” Adam Shonkwiler makes his main stage debut as John Birt, BBC’s director of news and current affairs and the producer on Frost’s team. Also, Kenny Toll plays Jim Reston, a researcher for the Frost team while Stephen Muterspaugh plays Bob Zelnick, the executive editor of the Frost/ Nixon interviews. Elena Wright plays Caroline Cushing, Frost’s girlfriend while Patrick Russell makes his TheatreWorks debut as Swifty Lazar, Nixon’s agent, and Mike Wallace, the famed “60 Minutes” correspondent. Adam J. Saucedo makes his TheatreWorks debut as Manolo Sanchez, Nixon’s valet; Craig Marker plays Jack Brennan, a political aide and Nixon’s post-resignation chief of staff, and Alicia Piemme Nelson makes her TheatreWorks debut as Evonne Goolagong, a top tennis player.

“Frost/Nixon” debuted at London’s Donmar Warehouse in 2006 to critical acclaim, and then transferred to the West End’s Gieldgud Theatre later that year, securing three Olivier Award nominations including “Best New Play.” Its 2007 Broadway premiere garnered a Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Award for actor Frank Langella for his performance as Nixon, a Drama Desk Award for director Michael Grandage, and was nominated for three Tony Awards including “Best Play,” four Drama Desk Awards, five Outer Critics Circle Awards, and a Drama League Award.

For tickets ($40-$100) and more information the public may visit TheatreWorks.org or call (650) 463-1960.
