"Holly Golightly's beloved companion, 'Cat', is one of the most famous felines on all of literature," said director Sean Mathias. "We will search high and low until we find the perfect animal to take on this role."
Directed by Sean Mathias, Breakfast at Tiffany's begins performances at the Cort Theatre on Monday, March 4, 2013 and will officially open on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. This stage adaption of Truman Capote's classic novella will star Emilia Clarke (HBO's "Game of Thrones") in the iconic role of 'Holly Golightly,' Cory Michael Smith as 'Fred' and George Wendt as 'Joe Bell.'
Based on Truman Capote's most beloved masterwork, Breakfast at Tiffany's is set in New York City in 1943. 'Fred', 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 (Smith). 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.
The cast of Breakfast at Tiffany's also includes 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.
