As was previously announced, the new stage adaption of Capote's classic novella, directed by Sean Mathias, also stars Cory Michael Smith and will begin performances at Broadway's Cort Theatre on Monday, March 4. Opening night is set for Wednesday, March 20.
Based on Truman Capote's most beloved masterwork, Truman Capote's 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 (Cory Michael 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 creative team for Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's includes Tony Award-winner Derek McLane (Scenic Design), three-time Academy Award-winner Colleen Atwood (Costume Design), Tony Award-winner Peter Kaczorowski (Lighting Design), Wendall K. Harrington (Projections Design) and Rob Milburn & Michael Bodeen (Music and Sound Design).
Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's is being produced on Broadway by Colin Ingram Productions Limited, Donovan Mannato and Dominic Ianno.
