There’s good news for everyone who, after an evening spent watching Dan Aykroyd or David Frye in the 1970s, would turn to their friends and say, “OK, wanna see a real Nixon impression?” The Playhouse on the Square in Memphis is taking on Peter Morgan’s Frost/Nixon as its next production, and, to that end, is holding an audition on November 14 for all the roles.
So if you, gentle reader, are up for getting on a plane and heading to the land of Elvis, Big Star and B.B. King – or if you already live in Memphis – this is your chance. Or, if you prefer, you could try out for the roles of David Frost, Caroline Cushing, John Birt, Manolo Sanchez, Irving Lazar, Col Jack Brennan, James Reston, Jr (a part much more substantial in the play than in Ron Howard’s film), or even Evonne Goolagong. So order a copy of the play from Amazon, and make your showbiz dreams come true.
