The new world-premiere production of Breakfast at Tiffany's, adapted by Tony Award winner Richard Greenberg, begins preview performances at the Cort Theatre on March 4 and officially opens on March 20.
Sean Mathias directs.
The stage adaptation of Truman Capote's classic novella about a child-woman who loves the nightlife in 1940s New York stars Emilia Clarke (HBO's "Game of Thrones") as Holly Golightly, Cory Michael Smith as suitor Fred and George Wendt as bartender Joe Bell.
The stage version by Greenberg (Take Me Out, Eastern Standard, The American Plan, Three Days of Rain and the upcoming The Assembled Parties) is set in New York City in 1943. In it, "Fred (played by Smith), a young writer from Louisiana, meets Holly Golightly (Clarke), a charming, vivacious and utterly elusive good-time girl. Everyone falls in love with Holly — including Fred. But Fred is poor, and Holly's other suitors include a playboy millionaire and the future president of Brazil. As war rages on in Europe, Holly begins to fall in love with Fred — just as her past catches up with her."
