Entertainment Weekly exclusively premiered some of the first production photos from the stage version of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Of course, this Broadway production is an adaptation of the classic 1961 Breakfast at Tiffany’s film starring Audrey Hepburn. Emilia Clarke stars as Holly Golightly, Cory Michael Smith stars as Fred, and George Wendt stars as Joe Bell. Look at the full cast list and prodcution details here.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Clarke addresses her experiences working on the production, how she has to do 20 costume changes in one show, and taking on such an iconic role on stage. In the interview Clarke states: “It’s not the movie, it’s not Audrey Hepburn, but it is Capote’s words and Capote’s beautiful characters. I’ve just been trying to live out his words…the film sort of had to take a back seat. It’s very much an entirely different piece.” (Read the full interview here.)
Breakfast at Tiffany’s opens on March 20 and is on a limited-engagement Broadway run. Would you be interested in seeing this production? Do you think Emilia Clarke suits the role? Take a look at the exclusive photos taken by Nathan Johnson below:
