Opening this week

Hardly anybody in Orlando opens anything during Fringe, but here’s a production of Frost/Nixon in Cocoa Beach:

Surfside Players is proud to present Frost/Nixon, by Peter Morgan

Surfside Players, Cocoa Beach, is proud to present the Brevard County debut of the 2007 Tony-award-nominated drama Frost/Nixon, by Peter Morgan.  British talk-show host David Frost has become a lowbrow laughing-stock.  Richard M. Nixon has just resigned the United States presidency in total disgrace over Vietnam and the Watergate scandal.

Determined to resurrect his career, Frost risks everything on a series of in-depth interviews in order to extract an apology from Nixon.  The cagey Nixon, however, is equally bent on redeeming himself in his nation’s eyes.  In the television age, image is king, and both men are desperate to outtalk and upstage each other as the cameras roll.  The result is the interview that sealed a president’s legacy.

Performance dates for Frost/Nixon are May 28 – June 13, 2010 (three weekends), Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.  There will be an Opening Night Reception for ticketholders on Friday, May 28, with hors d’oeuvres served at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and active military, $10 for students, with group discounts available.  Call (321) 783-3127 for reservations.  Warning: This show contains strong language.

Directed by Jennifer Wolf.  Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Services.  To get to Surfside, take A1A into Cocoa Beach, and turn west on Fifth Street South.  Call (321) 783-3127 or go to for more info.
