Through Feb. 6: "Frost/Nixon"

Tacoma Little Theatre

If I had to pick one play for a small, local theater to produce out of the current public consciousness, it would be Peter Morgan's Frost/Nixon. Aside from the bevy of awards and the recent film, the subject matter seems as relevant today, in our atmosphere of ethics violations and rampaging sentiment against any sitting politician, as at any time since the actual interviews of Richard Nixon by David Frost in 1977.

Tacoma Little Theatre's production of Frost/Nixon is suitably sparse. As with the interviews themselves, the centerpiece throughout the bulk of the show is simply a pair of chairs set up for a television interview. In lieu of a backdrop there is a series of screens which project, in turns, actual news clips and a live feed of the interview conducted on stage.

Did TLT's production work? Read my full review here.
