BWW TV: Chatting with the Cast of BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S - Emilia Clarke, Cory Michael Smith & More!
Tony Award winning playwright Richard Greenberg's new play, Breakfast at Tiffany's will soon open at the Cort Theatre (138 W 48th Street). Directed by Sean Mathias, Breakfast at Tiffany's begins preview performances on Monday, March 4, 2013 and officially opens 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.'
The cast and creative team met the press earlier today and BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge was there to chat with the whole gang. Check out what they had to say below!
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.
