This is the Broadway debut of Richard Greenberg's Breakfast at Tiffany's, adapted from the Truman Capote novella of the same name. Holly Golightly (Emilia Clarke) is the "it girl" of New York café society. She is unemployed, spare the full-time job of socializing with wealthy men (her suitors include a millionaire playboy and the future president of Brazil); according to Capote, Golightly is an "American geisha." In the autumn of 1943, Golightly becomes acquainted with "Fred" (Corey Michael Smith) a confirmed bachelor that has just moved into her Upper East Side brownstone. Breakfast at Tiffany's is the story of their year-long relationship amidst the glitterati as war rages across the ocean.
Unlike the beloved 1961 film adaptation starring Audrey Hepburn, Greenberg's play will steer much closer to the original Capote novella. Emilia Clarke of HBO's Game of Thrones makes her Broadway debut as Holly Golightly.
