Frost/Nixon

For Foe's birthday we went to see Frank Langella and Michael Sheen as Richard Nixon and David Frost respectively in Frost/Nixon by Peter Morgan.

It was absolutely fantastic – funny, sharp, pugilistic, poignant.

In this piece in The Guardian on Morgan the playwright, it reveals this to be his first play, following a series of successful political docudramas on TV. Makes sense after the fact. The play had the jump-cutty, hyperlinky texture of modern TV at it's best.

It also had late 70's international jet-set moderne set dressings and fashions a-plenty, which made me think that Adam Greenfield would have 'lost his shit' over had he been there.

Americans – when it goes to the States, as it must – see it.
