NIXON’S NIXON runs March 15-17

Presented by Middletown Lyric Theatre
March 15-17

It is the night before President Nixon is to announce his resignation, and he has summoned Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to the Lincoln Sitting Room. Kissinger arrives, expecting to find his President preparing to resign but Nixon leads his Secretary of State on a journey through the high moments of his administration and Nixon’s past. The journey borders on the surreal as Nixon pressures Kissinger into reenacting crucial scenes. Meanwhile, Kissinger is subtly working to convince Nixon to step down so that he can pursue his geopolitical goals—and his own quest for historical glory—unencumbered by a weakened President. Contains Nixon’s “authentic” adult language.

Directed by Janet Powell

Cast: Les Landen as Henry Kissinger & Michael Schlotterbeck as Richard Nixon
