Emilia Clarke, you’re officially a Broadway star! The Game of Thrones princess makes her Broadway debut in Richard Greenberg’s brand new stage adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which opens on March 20 at the Cort Theatre.
Truman Capote’s classic novella comes to life on Broadway with Clarke in the iconic role of Holly Golightly. She is joined by Cory Michael Smith and Cheers star George Wendt in the story of a young southern writer who becomes fascinated by his beguiling and beautiful neighbor in Manhattan.
The show's ensemble 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.
The story began life on the page in 1958 before skyrocketing to cultural icon status with the 1961 film starring Audrey Hepburn. Director Sean Mathias’ new take on Tiffany’s is based entirely on the novella, though, not the movie.
The 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.
