Spotlight On: Breakfast at Tiffany's

Miss Holly Golightly cordially invites you to enjoy Breakfast at Tiffany’s in a stage adaptation of Truman Capote’s celebrated novella.

Breakfast at Tiffany's


She’s the woman every man wants to be with and every woman wants to be. Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) plays Holly Golightly, a charming, vivacious and utterly elusive good-time girl in this world-premiere staging of the Truman Capote novella. Everyone falls in love with Holly – including Fred, a young writer from Louisiana. But Fred is poor, and Holly’s other suitors include a playboy millionaire and the future president of Brazil. It’s New York in 1943, and as war rages on in Europe, Holly begins to fall in love with Fred – just as her past catches up with her. This classic tale is about living by your own rules... loving on your own terms... and wearing your heart on your designer sleeve. The Broadway adaptation is by Richard Greenberg.

The score was by Bob Merrill, the book by Edward Albee, and the cast included Mary Tyler Moore (as Holly) and Richard Chamberlain.
  • The film, directed by Blake Edwards, was added to the National Film Registry in 2012.
