Intriguing, Slow, Intelligent, Absorbing, Clever

See it if You want to see the great Rich Little as Richard Nixon in an intriguing play that considers what if Nixon had not resigned.

Don't see it if You don’t care about politics, are too old to have lived through the Watergate era or if you’re too young to appreciate who Rich Little is. Read more

Quirky, Cliched, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you want to see a possible outcome from the Nixon dilemma played by one of his best impersonators supported by a good cast.

Don't see it if you do not enjoy choppy scenes that seem to slow the pace or you have had enough of or do not enjoy politics.
