Monroeville, AL – Fall's HOTTEST tickets are now on sale for Truman Talks Nelle Harper Lee! The world premiere of this play will be in the famed courtroom of Monroeville's historic old courthouse museum on the weekend of September 27-29.

Starring Broadway's Joel Vig, from the original casts of Ruthless and Hairspray, the play focuses on a fictional surprise 50th birthday celebration for Harper Lee. Her lifelong friend Truman Capote, portrayed by Vig, has come from New York to speak in her honor, and shares stories of their relationship as the “guests” await her arrival.
