BWW Reviews: Zach Theatre Offers a TRU Look at Truman Capote
by Jeff Davis - Jan 20, 2013

I've heard it said that we are our most authentic selves when no one else is around and it's just us with our thoughts. Perhaps that's why Tru is so effective. By giving us a one man play in which Truman Capote can contemplate his life and the people in it, Jay Presson Allen has given us a fascinating portrait of the famous writer. Buoyed by Jaston Williams's fearless performance, this production is not to be missed. (more...)

ZACH Announces TRU, Starring Jaston Williams, 1/10-3/10
by BWW News Desk - Dec 24, 2012

Greater Tuna star Jaston Williams inhabits Truman Capote in what's described as a virtuoso performance of the charming, acerbic, fragile, and enigmatic writer. In this one-man tour de force, Williams' astonishing portrayal of the In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany's author is by turns hilarious, vulnerable, and confessional. The audience becomes confidants to TRU's trademark wit and honesty. Packed houses, standing ovations, and waves of laughter characterized this show in its initial run at ZACH Theatre 12 years ago making it the hottest ticket in town. This production promises to be even more fun this time around. (more...)
