New York, NY (April 15, 2013) – The world premiere of Tony® Award winning playwright Richard Greenberg’s new play, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, will play its final performance on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 3 p.m. after playing 17 preview and 38 regular performances at Broadway’s Cort Theatre (138 W 48th Street). Breakfast at Tiffany’s began previews on Monday, March 4, 2013 and officially opened on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. Directed by Sean Mathias, this stage adaption of Truman Capote’s classic novella stars Emilia Clarke (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) in the iconic role of ‘Holly Golightly,’ Cory Michael Smith as ‘Fred,’ and George Wendt as ‘Joe Bell.’
Based on Truman Capote’s most beloved masterwork, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is set in New York City in 1943. ‘Fred’, a young writer from Louisiana, meets ‘Holly Golightly’ (Clarke), a charming, vivacious and utterly elusive good-time girl. Everyone falls in love with Holly – including Fred (Smith). 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.
The cast of Breakfast at Tiffany’s also includes Suzanne Bertish, Danny Binstock, Pedro Carmo, Elisabeth Anthony Gray, Murphy Guyer, Eddie Korbich, Paolo Montalban, Kate Cullen Roberts, John Rothman, Tony Torn, Lee Wilkof and James Yaegashi.
