An ART world premiere.

From American Repertory Theater

Somewhere in the disco-drunk 1970s, Truman Capote and Andy Warhol decided that they were destined to create a Broadway play together. On dozens of tapes, Warhol recorded their conversations about the show—and about everything else, including Studio 54 scandals and America’s obsessive relationship with celebrity. Warhol and Capote never finished their play, and the tapes were forgotten—until now. With the support of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Truman Capote Literary Trust, Tony Award nominee Rob Roth (Beauty and the Beast) has edited Warhol’s unpublished recordings into an incisive portrait of two of America’s most enigmatic artistic personas. Tony Award winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening, Hedwig and the Angry Inch) directs this world premiere “non-fiction invention.”
