So far we have the original novella by Truman Capote (1958), the film with Audrey Hepburn (1961), a musical (1966), and a West End production (2009). Opening next month on Broadway is yet another incarnation of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, this time starring Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones fame.
As the show hasn’t opened yet, information is still trickling in, but so far there is an official website, an app game you can play (Fend off rats and super rats! Dance with Fred! Buy clothes!), and a Facebook page to like, and a Twitter feed you may follow for updates and sneak peeks at costume design sketches. The show previews begin March 4th at the Cort Theatre but the official opening night is March 20th. As of now, the calendar shows the play running through the end of August, but as with any play, if you want to see it, book sooner rather than later.
I’ll actually be running out to New York the weekend after next to catch the show, so I’ll take pictures of the venue and write up a review for those of you who can’t make it. Keep in mind that this is based off of the novella, which is quite a bit different than the film, so if you’re not familiar with Capote’s Holly Golightly…well, you might want to read up on her.
