A.R.T. Season
Coming September 2017

From the Words of Truman Capote and Andy Warhol
Adapted by Rob Roth
Directed by Michael Mayer


In the late 1970s, Truman Capote and Andy Warhol decided that they were destined to create a Broadway play together. Over the course of the next several months, they would sit down to record a series of intimate, wide ranging conversations. The play never came to be, and the hours and hours of tape were lost to the ages. Until now.

With the support of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Truman Capote Literary Trust, Award-winning director Rob Roth – who discovered the recordings in the late 2000’s – will unveil the content of the tapes in the world premiere of Warhol Capote, a new play directed by Tony Award-winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening). 

Andy Warhol and Truman Capote were famously friends: The artist depicted the writer in his work several times, and the pair spent hundreds of hours in conversation (some of it published). Now pieces of those conversations will be adapted into “Warhol Capote,” a new play opening this September at the American Repertory Theater. More
