     "I'm an alcoholic. I'm a drug addict. I'm homosexual. I'm a genius." Thus Truman Capote, the man who sketched ruthless killers in "In Cold Blood" and exquisite socialites in "Breakfast at Tiffany's", once famously described himself. These four facets of his most remarkable personality -- not to mention numerous others -- are explored in "Tru", a one-man show adapted from the author's own words and work. It's 1975, a week before Christmas, and Capote is holed up in his Manhattan apartment, weathering the social storm brought on by the publication of an excerpt of his upcoming novel, the scandalous "Answered Prayers". Aided by copious amounts of pills, vodka, cocaine and chocolate truffles, one of America's greatest literary figures muses about his checkered life and career in this two-act monologue starring Todd Blakesley.

     With a tagline of "A true story of false profits," "ENRON" is a dynamic theatrical event about one of the most famous scandals in financial history. Crafted as a sprawling tragedy mixed with savage comedy, the play follows a group of ambitious men and women through the breathtaking rush of greed and fraud that led to the energy company Enron's legendary financial collapse. Along the way we gain disturbing insight into the back-room secrets of big business, and confront a world where appearance has little relation to reality. Written by British playwright Lucy Prebble in 2010, "ENRON" was a sold-out sensation in London, where its plot was often compared to "King Lear".
