Oh the sto­ries Andy Warhol and Tru­man Capote could tell. It turns out they did—to­gether. The fa­mous friends recorded hun­dreds of hours of con­ver­sa­tions in the late 1970s in the hopes of cre­at­ing a Broad­way play that never hap­pened. But Warhol Capote, pre­mier­ing at the Amer­i­can Reper­tory The­ater Sept. 9, mines those con­ver­sa­tions for a new work of­fer­ing up the pair’s in­ti­mate mus­ings on celebri­ties, Stu­dio 54 scan­dals and more. The never-be­fore-heard meet­ings yield “riv­et­ing con­ver­sa­tion,” says Diane Paulus, the A.R.T.’s Artis­tic Direc­tor. “[It’s] at times hi­lar­i­ous, deeply emo­tional, and of­ten jaw drop­ping.” Tony Award-win­ner Michael Mayer (Spring Awak­en­ing, Hed­wig and the An­gry Inch) di­rects. Look­out, Broad­way. Tick­ets from $25, Loeb Drama Cen­ter, 64 Brat­tle St., Cam­bridge, amer­i­can­reper­to­rythe­ater.org
