The world premiere of Richard Greenberg’s Breakfast at Tiffany's, based on Truman Capote's novella, plays its final performance April 21 at 3 PM. Upon closing, the production will have played a total of 17 preview and 38 regular performances at Broadway’s Cort Theatre.

Breakfast began previews March 4 and officially opened March 20.

Directed by Sean Mathias, the cast is headed by 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.

Read the Playbill.com feature in which Mathias, Wendt, Clarke and Smith talk about the sweet-sad world of Holly Golightly.



Breakfast at Tiffany’s, according to press notes, "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 company also features 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.

The creative team included Tony Award winner Derek McLane (scenic design), three-time Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood (costume design), Tony Award winner Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Wendall K. Harrington (projection design) and Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (original music and sound design).
