What Is Breakfast at Tiffany’s Like?
The play is based primarily on Capote's novella, not the famous 1961 movie with Audrey Hepburn. The narrator frequently breaks the fourth wall by addressing the audience as he shares his story, told in a style very reminiscent of film noir. Glamorous costumes, clever set pieces, unique projections and a luminous star turn by Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Holly make this show a stylish night at the theater.
