| where is the DVD ???
This is an extraordinary show, beautifully written and acted, and a wonderful representation of the stage production (which I have seen.)

Robert Morse shows himself an actor of much greater depth than I'd ever realized -- he's come a long way from "How to succeed in business without really trying," where he was flashy: here he is deep as well as wonderfully funny.

The sections on Christmas are comic classics; the readings from short fiction are touching and compellingly read; the one-liners are side-splitting; and Truman Capote turns out to be a worthy character under all the affectations and fluff.

This is long overdue for release on DVD. What's wrong with the studios?!
