Dueling Critics: Frost/Nixon

It's fitting that Frost/Nixon is based on a series of television programs, which eventually became a play, and then a film. Fitting because Frost/Nixon is all about the media, that magical place where politics and celebrity collide. That's the place where the mighty are knocked from their lofty perch one day and redeemed the next. The production caused a sensation in London and New York and the film garnered a slew of Academy Award nominations. So does TimeLine Theatre's version pack the visual and emotional punches needed to pull off this verbal sparring match? Dueling Critics Kelly Kleiman and Jonathan Abarbanel share their reviews.
