From IMDB:

***A recording of a live performance of the Broadway play about two days in the life of Truman Capote during the time of the publication of his controversial story "Answered Prayers" in Esquire magazine in 1975. The one-man show takes place entirely in Capote's condominium in the United Nations Plaza in New York City.

Set during Christmas, Capote talks on the phone to various friends, associates and businesses throughout the play. For the duration of the piece, however, he is speaking directly to the audience, breaking "the third wall," regarding his life, loves, friends, career [...]

Actor Robert Morse, best known for originating the role of J. Pierrepont Finch in the Broadway musical How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying for which he won the 1962 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical, portrays Truman Capote, and won his second Tony (Best Actor in a Play) in 1990 for his performance in TRU.***

I should add that Morse also won an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Special for this filmed production.

The play was written by Jay Presson Allen (utilizing much of Capote's own words). Directed by Kirk Browning.

**My apologies for the video/audio quality. This was originally recorded in 1992 using a two-head VCR from a rabbit-eared TV (in Toledo, Ohio, no less!). The VHS I ripped this from is 17 years old! It is what it is. Hope you enjoy it, just the same.**
