In the latest installment of L.A. Theatre Works’ The Play’s The Thing Series, Peter Morgan’s Tony-nominated Frost/Nixon will soon come to life as a radio theatre performance for audiences far and wide to enjoy.
L.A. Theatre Works, a non-profit organization that preserves dramatic literature through the production of nationally syndicated audio theatre, will host live performances of Frost/Nixon from April 19-22, 2012, at the James Bridges Theatre at UCLA. Featuring the finest actors from stage and screen, Frost/Nixon will feature James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville) as British talk show host David Frost and Tom Virtue (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) as President Richard Nixon. History buffs and audio drama fanatics alike will have the unique opportunity to attend a live dramatization of the infamous interviews (sans sets and costumes), while they are being recorded to air on public radio stations across the country. In addition, the performance can later be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.
