“Warhol Capote” Coming To Cambridge

Stage and screen personality Leslie Jordan will play Andy Warhol and Tony winner Stephen Spinella will take on Truman Capote on stage at the American Repertory Theater. (Kidding! The casting is the reverse.) The two will star in the world premiere of Rob Roth’s Warhol Capote at the Cambridge, Massachusetts, venue. The production, directed by Michael Mayer, will run at the Loeb Drama Center September 9 through October 13. Adapted from a series of dozens of newly discovered tapes, the “non-fiction invention” follows the pair as they brainstorm a never-produced Broadway show together through the drug-fueled haze of the disco era. The tapes were made available with the support of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Truman Capote Literary Trust.
