One the most iconic New York Citys stories, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” is coming to the Cort Theater on Broadway this March. Based on Truman Capote’s 1958 Breakfast at Tiffany’s novella, the story follows protagonist Holly Golightly though tale entwining love, past, and Manhattan’s elite. The show will debut on stage beginning March 20, 2013, featuring 25-year-old star of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” Emilia Clarke as the main protagonist, Miss Holly Golightly. The cast, directed by Tony Award nominee Sean Mathias (The Elephant Man) will also include Broadway regular Cory Michael Smith and George Wendt of “Cheers” with a script adapted by Tony Award winner Richard Greenberg.
Perhaps best known for making the “LBD” or “Little Black Dress” a staple in every woman’s closet, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is a story about Holly, a country-girl-turned-city-girl in the 1940′s Upper East Side. She befriends “Fred”, a writer in the same apartment building, and their adventures uncovering the world of society, wealth, dating, style and fashion.
Retailer Target is joining in on the fun!
Sonia Kashuk and Umberto used Target-exclusive products to recreate the style of Holly Golightly. The two collaborated with Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood to recreate Holly’s style. Their combined work will be on display in the production artwork for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” on Broadway. Clarke will also wear the looks on-stage during performances this spring, donning Holly’s signature strings of pearls, simple elegant up-dos, and her cat eyed eye liner.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for this production. As one of my favorite Audrey Hepburn movies, Clarke has big shoes to fill.
