My overall impression

My memories of Truman Capote are some vague ones from some talk shows and a few movie appearances. I know what he looks and sounds like but not much about him.
After seeing this show I feel like I spent an hour with the man. Michael-Anthony Nozzi does an OUTSTANDING job of bringing Truman Capote into the theater. His mannerisms, his voice, even that giggle. The show is an hour(ish) in Truman Capote’s New York apartment on a Christmas Eve. You eavesdrop a bit on some phone conversations and then get some insight about a very complex individual. You laugh, you cry and eventually feel some pity for the man.
I once saw James Whitmore perform his one man show “Will Rogers” and I would put it up in that area of performance quality. After the show ou feel like you met the guy.
If you can, see this show.
