Whether it was the familiarity of close-ups on a lying politician, or the perfectly pleated plaid pants of a journalist, or the mere razzle dazzle of a company of elite Oklahoma City actors, Frost/Nixon proved to be an engaging and important piece of historical theatre that will leave you wondering if we are all, whether hero or villain, actor or politician, just a?oelooking for a way back into the sun, into the limelight?a??

Author [Roger F. Greaves returns with both barrels loaded on his fourth outing in his Swifty King series. The premise for this one is ultraviolent, and Greaves has mastered the art of tough, laconic writing for the crime and detective genre, sweeping his willing readers along on a taut, suspenseful narrative. It is the usual, unusual ride with Swifty King, Kyle Faust and Colonel Percival in 'Swifty King and the Wife Killer.'

Ever since I was dazzled by Creating Arts Studios production 'Thenardiers Inn' which well-deservedly went on to win the 2015 Hollywood Fringe award for best cabaret and variety show, I wait with anticipation for their next totally immersive theater experience, knowing it will be like no other. It was true for their 'The Experiment Cabaret' and I was not disappointed when I walked into the world famous Sayers Club in Hollywood, transformed into the Copa Room at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas during the reign of the Rat Pack in their current celebratory piece entitled 'A NIGHT AT THE SANDS' - A Vegas Musical Cocktail With an L.A. Twist.

I feel like when it comes to 'Iowa', Alicia has finally kicked off her shoes. There is a shot of her slipper-clad feet, right before she takes a stack of plates and throws them at Eli's head, that makes me think about her being closer to the ground now, more real. The rage that comes after, the attacking Eli, and the sobbing in her bedroom, that's all so real, too.

Running now until December 16, NOT ABOUT NIGHTINGALES is one of Williams' early works, written in 1938. The play's rough edges help to bridge our understanding of how an aspiring Thomas would later become known to the world as Tennessee. Such a rarity is this play that it was not produced until the 1990's after Vanessa Redgrave first heard of its existence, and then persisted in bringing it to the stage.

Frost/Nixon is Peter Morgan's award-winning play about the televised 1977 interviews between British talk show host David Frost and deposed president Richard M. Nixon. The interviews were divided into four segments, each focusing on a different topic. The original broadcast of the first segment drew 45 million viewers. What most people were looking for, including Frost, was an admission of guilt, a show of remorse, and some sign of contrition from the former president for the Watergate scandal that brought down his administration in 1974.
