A multimedia dance theater piece inspired by a 1957 New Yorker magazine profile of the actor by Truman Capote. More…
From the show:
Disguised as an interview, BrandoCapote evolves into our own version of In Cold Blood, Capote's true crime masterwork. In BrandoCapote, like In Cold Blood, Capote puts a human face on an inhuman act, exposing generations of toxic masculinity, abuse and violence, while exorcising the demons of American celebrity.
See it if you like experimental theater, particularly shows that rely on video, dance and movement.
Don't see it if you expect traditional, easy to understand theater
See it if you admire and know well the repertoire of Marlon and Truman and appreciate nonlinear, artistic examination their personalities, viewpoints
Don't see it if you prefer traditional multi-act drama, comedy, musicals, not interested in lives/viewpoints of protagonists, eschew intellectual challenge
See it if multimedia dance gorgeously designed and beautifully conceived is your thing! A visual feast! A story of male toxicity that transcends color
Don't see it if you want easy narrative - this is a multimedia dance piece! It tells a story but not a simple obvious one and not w/o repetitive gestures
