A new play by Peter Morgan (who wrote The Queen and cowrote The Last King of Scotland) and was a big hit in London. Michael Sheen (Tony Blair in The Queen) plays David Frost in this re-creation of the British talk-show host's legendary interview with the disgraced ex-president (played by Frank Langella). Just how did Frost get Nixon to apologize? A supporting cast of eight -- including the veteran Remy Auberjunois -- helps dramatize the TV event of its time. Directed by Michael Grandage.

Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, 242 W. 45th St., (212) 239-6200. Previews start Mar. 31. Opens Apr. 22.
