PREVIEW: Breakfast at Tiffany's at Theatre Royal
Breakfast at Tiffany's, the classic tale of Holly Golightly written by Truman Capote and so memorably portrayed by Audrey Hepburn in the iconic 1961 film, is being given a new lease of life as a stage play with music in a sparkling, sophisticated production.
The show, starring Emily Atack (The Inbetweeners, Dads Army) as Holly, Matt Barber (Downton Abbey) as Fred and Victor McGuire (the sit-coms Trollied and Bread) as Joe Bell, is at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from May 9 until May 14.
Adapted by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony and Olivier Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg and directed by Nikolai Foster, this tale of vivacious, good-time girl Holly Golightly and her fantastical existence in 1940s New York City, is told through the eyes of a young writer.
Based on Truman Capote’s beloved masterwork, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is set in New York in 1943.
Fred, a young writer from Louisiana, meets Holly Golightly, a charming, vivacious and utterly elusive good-time girl. Everyone falls in love with Holly – including Fred. But Fred is poor, and Holly’s other suitors include a playboy millionaire and the future president of Brazil. As war rages on in Europe, Holly begins to fall in love with Fred – just as her past catches up with her.
With memorable songs from the era, this stylish production is set to capture the hearts of audiences and sparkle like a diamond in a Tiffany’s window.
Tickets are priced from £14 - £32.50.
