BTE opened its Holiday season with the production of Holiday Memories on Friday with their Annual Food Preview. Each year, BTE kicks off the season by offering free admission to a performance for a single non-perishable food item. Not to worry, if you missed the kickoff on Friday, Holiday Memories by Truman Capote runs from November 25, 2011 until December 30, 2011. This wonderful series of stories has been adapted by Russell Vandenbroucke and is directed by Gerard Stropnicky. Try and make time for a performance this Holiday season!
“Oh my, it’s fruitcake weather!” Miss Sook, Truman’s older eccentric maiden aunt looks out her window to greet each holiday season. Her home-made fruitcakes will go to family and friends, and many to people she met just once, or perhaps not at all. Like President Roosevelt. Truman Capote’s stories of his childhood holidays in the Depression Deep South are filled with joy, love, family, poignancy, music, vivid characters, and entirely American grace in this funny, beautiful, and fast-moving stage adaptation.
