Photo Coverage: Michael Sheen Sardi's Caricature Unveiled
Oscar-nominee Michael Sheen, currently starring as David Frost in Broadway's Frost/Nixon, had his caricature unveiled at world famous Sardi's Restaurant on Friday, August 10. Sheen's likeness joined the ranks of Broadway royalty who have been honored with a caricature on the famous walls of Sardi's.
Frost/Nixon, the new play by Oscar nominated and Golden Globe-winning writer Peter Morgan and directed by Tony® Award nominee Michael Grandage, is now in its final two weeks at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre (242 West 45th Street). Starring three-time Tony® Award winner Frank Langella as President Richard Nixon and Sheen (The Queen) as Sir David Frost, the production will play its final performance on Sunday, August 19 to begin filming on the Frost/Nixon movie. In addition to Langella and Sheen, the cast features Remy Auberjonois (John Birt); Shira Gregory (Evonne Goolagong); Roxanna Hope (Caroline Cushing); Corey Johnson (Jack Brennan); Stephen Kunken (Jim Reston); Stephen Rowe (Swifty Lazar/Mike Wallace); Triney Sandoval (Manolo Sanchez); Armand Schultz (Bob Zelnick).
"How was it that a famous British talk-show host, with a playboy reputation, was the one to elicit the apology that the rest of the world was waiting to hear from a former U.S. President?," state press notes. "This fast paced new play, Frost/Nixon, takes audiences into the minds of Richard Nixon and David Frost and shows the determination, conviction and lengths that these two men and their closest confidantes went to as they took the stage in one of the most hard fought political interviews in history."
