Breakfast at Tiffany's - Broadway

Emilia Clarke stars in the stage adaptation of Truman Capote's classic novel.


What Is the Story of Breakfast at Tiffany’s?
Based on Truman Capote’s classic novella, Breakfast at Tiffany’s tells the story of a young Southern-born writer who becomes infatuated with his Upper East Side neighbor, the beguiling, effervescent beauty Holly Golightly. As she pulls him up in her world of spontaneous parties and luxury, he finds himself fascinated with this captivating woman, her quirks and her mysterious past.

Should I See It?

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.

Is Breakfast at Tiffany’s Good for Kids?
No. Breakfast at Tiffany’s includes one scene with male and female nudity, as well as occasional adult language and themes throughout the show.
