Yes, Frost/Nixon was a hit film about the famous interview between David Frost and shamed president Richard Nixon. And before Frost/Nixon was a hit film, it was a hit stage play about the same. But I think it's time for Frost/Nixon to join the ranks of the Dirty Sanchez and the Cleveland Steamer as, well, a you-know-what. What's a Frost/Nixon? You screw someone and then you take their money and funnel it illegally into a campaign to re-elect the president. So you screw them twice, maybe, depending on their political leanings. Hrm, yeah, maybe we better stick with the original Frost/Nixon, which is coming to Dallas as part of the Dallas Summer Musicals series. History buffs and Anglophiles alike will enjoy the story of the playboy Brit journalist who ruffled Nixon's feathers by asking him the tough questions about Watergate. Reviews 'round the country have praised Stacy Keach's (Nixon) and Alan Cox's (Frost) performances, saying they're just as electrifying as one might imagine the real interview was, so don't wait to watch Frost/Nixon on your Netflix. The play opens Wednesday--that's a last-minute change for any April 28 ticket holders who need to exchange their tix--and runs through Sunday, May 3, at the Majestic Theatre, 1925 Elm St. Tickets are $20 to $80.
