Holly Golightly will bid her adieu to Broadway when Richard Greenberg’s new stage adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffany’s closes on Sunday, April 21, after 17 previews and 38 regular performances. The play began previews on March 4 and opened on March 20 at the Cort Theatre.
Directed by Sean Mathias, this new mounting of the famous Truman Capote novella stars Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke in the iconic role of Holly Golightly (made famous by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film), with Cory Michael Smith as Fred and George Wendt as Joe Bell. Rounding out the ensemble are Suzanne Bertish, Danny Binstock, Pedro Carmo, Elisabeth Anthony Gray, Murphy Guyer, Eddie Korbich, Paolo Montalban, Kate Cullen Roberts, John Rothman, Tony Torn, Lee Wilkof and James Yaegashi.
Set in New York City in 1943, Breakfast at Tiffany’s centers on the relationship between Fred (Smith), a young writer from Louisiana and Holly (Clarke), a vivacious good-time girls whose past catches up with her.
The Broadway production features sets by Derek McLane, costumes by Colleen Atwood, lighting by Peter Kaczorowski, projections by Wendall K. Harrington and music and sound by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen.
