One-man show adapts gay author's cherished holiday story

Share Truman Capote’s ‘A Christmas Memory’

Theatrical Outfit’s Executive Director Tom Key will perform a one-man show of Truman Capote’s “A Christmas Memory” at the Balzer Theater tonight.

The performance includes two acts — the first act of holiday music with the second act of Key narrating the semi-autobiographical tale of Buddy, a 7-year old boy from Alabama, and his friendship with his elderly and eccentric cousin. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and is open to all ages.

Tickets range from $15 to $30 and can be purchased by calling the box office at 678-528-1500 or visiting
