Photo Coverage: Felines Gather to Play 'Cat' in BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S!
The world premiere of Tony Award winning playwright Richard Greenberg's new play, Breakfast at Tiffany's, just held a casting call to find the perfect cat to take on the iconic role of "Cat." Felines with Broadway dreams were encouraged to submit a photo and were invited to a casting session yesterday. Check out photos of the contenders below!
"Holly Golightly's beloved companion, 'Cat', is one of the most famous felines on all of literature," said director Sean Mathias. "We will search high and low until we find the perfect animal to take on this role."
Directed by Sean Mathias, Breakfast at Tiffany's begins performances at the Cort Theatre on Monday, March 4, 2013 and will officially open on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. This stage adaption of Truman Capote's classic novella will star 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.
Tickets for Breakfast at Tiffany's range from $37 - $132, and are available for purchase in person at the Cort Theatre box office beginning Monday, February 11, 2013 (Monday - Saturday, 12 p.m. - 8 p.m.), online at www.telecharge.com, or by calling Telecharge at 800-432-7250 or 212-239-6200.
