As you know if you've seen the erstwhile Opie's 2008 movie version, Frost/Nixon is Peter Morgan's dramatic distillation of David Frost's historic 1977 TV interviews with Tricky Dick, in which our 37th president finally admitted to being a nefarious crapsack. 

As good as Michael Sheen and the Oscar-nominated Skeletor (aka Frank Langella) were in that film, this is one confrontation that deserves to be seen live and in the moment - and so it shall, at Tacoma Little Theatre, opening Jan. 14.  

In the meantime, what food goes best with the demolition of an ex-president?  We're told Nixon liked cottage cheese slathered in ketchup, so let's not take this too damn literally, shall we?  Instead, we'll fall back on that old Vulcan proverb, "Only Nixon can go to China."  Indochine it is!  Oh my sweet agnostic God, have you tried their honey walnut prawns?  Yes, I know Indochine serves mostly Thai food, but their shrimp would be stars in any Hong Kong eatery.  Finally, Chef Gordon Naccarato at Pacific Grill traveled Hawaii learning how to make the perfect mai tai, so put his skillz to work on your nightcap.

[Tacoma Little Theatre, Jan. 14-Feb. 6, Friday-Saturday 7:30 p.m., Sunday 2 p.m., $15-$24, 210 N. I St., Tacoma, 253.272.2281
