Calendar of Events

Thursday, Nov. 1

“FROST-NIXON” STAGE PRODUCTION, 7:30 p.m., N.C. Stage Co., 15 Stage Lane, downtown Asheville. The N.C. Stage Co. will present its production of “Frost-Nixon” through Nov. 4. The Nov. 1-3 shows will begin at 7:30 p.m., while the Nov. 4 show will begin at 2 p.m. Regarding the production, N.C. Stage noted, “British talk-show host David Frost has become a lowbrow laughingstock. Richard M. Nixon has just resigned the United States presidency in total disgrace over Vietnam and the Watergate scandal. Determined to resurrect his career, Frost risks everything on a series of in-depth interviews in order to extract an apology from Nixon. The cagey Nixon, however, is equally bent on redeeming himself in his nation’s eyes. In the television age, image is king, and both men are desperate to out-talk and upstage each other as the cameras roll. The result is the interview that sealed a president’s legacy.” The New York Times said of the original movie of the same name, “Structured as a prize fight between two starkly ambitious men in professional crisis, ‘Frost/Nixon’ makes it clear that the competitor who controls the camera reaps the spoils.” N.C. Stage noted that the show contains “discretionary content — adult language.” For tickets, visit www.ncstage.org or call 239-0263.
