Obie and Lucille Lortel Award winner Harris Yulin (Ozark, Scarface) will play President Richard Nixon, to Obie and Outer Critics Circle winner Daniel Gerroll's (Enchanted April, Woman in White) David Frost in Bay Street Theater and Sag Harbor Center for the Arts’ upcoming production of Peter Morgan’s Frost/Nixon.
Directed by Sarna Lapine (Sunday in the Park with George), the limited engagement will play the Sag Harbor, New York, venue June 26–July 22.
The cast will also feature Stephen Lee Anderson as Swifty Lazaar/Mike Wallace, Cecillia Koueth as Evonne Goolagong, Christian Conn as Jim Reston, Michael Corvino as Manolo Sanchez, Brian Keane as Bob Zelnick, Danielle Slavick as Caroline Cushing, Price Waldman as John Birt, and Rich Topol as Jack Brennan.
Frost/Nixon brings audiences inside the landmark series of interviews between David Frost and former President Nixon that occurred three years after he resigned.
The production will also have set design by Wilson Chin, lighting by Ken Billington, costumes by Emilio Sosa, sound design by Josh Schmidt, projections by Tal Yarden, hair design by Jared Janas, props by Andrew Diaz, and dialect coaching by Stephen Gabis. The production stage manager is Lori Lundquist.
“It is a thrill to have two such accomplished actors taking on the lead roles in Peter Morgan's provocative and engrossing play,” said Bay Street Artistic Director Scott Schwartz in a statement. “Both Harris and Daniel are longtime friends and collaborators of Bay Street Theater and we are delighted they will be performing with us again this summer, joined by the rest of this phenomenal cast and creative team. I am sure Frost/Nixon will be a play our audience will be talking about all summer long!”
