When, much to the dismay of the doting but overprotective soldiers, Marie falls in love with the Tyrolean villager Tonio—a touchstone tenor role that overflows with both youthful ardor and ringing high notes—hilarity and virtuosic bel canto crossfire ensue.
7:30: Life On The Stage: Frost/Nixon with Ron Howard By Broadway Podcast Network. Join The Actors Fund and the Jacob Burns Film Center for an evening with filmmaker RON HOWARD in a live virtual conversation about his film Frost/Nixon (2008). Frost/Nixon is a cinematic adaptation of the play that premiered in London in August 2006 and opened on Broadway in April 2007, featuring subject matter that is just as timely now as when it first opened.
In 1977, three years after the Watergate scandal that ended his presidency, Richard Nixon (Frank Langella) selects British TV personality David Frost (Michael Sheen) to conduct an exclusive, one-on-one interview. Though Nixon believes it will be easy to mislead Frost, and the latter’s own team doubts that he can stand up to the former president, what actually unfolds is an unexpectedly candid and revealing interview that plays out before the court of public opinion.
Frost/Nixon is currently available to watch on Netflix. Watch the film at your convenience, then join us for a conversation.
