Breakfast at Tiffany's Tickets
Multi award-winning singer and songwriter, Pixie Lott, starred as the beguiling Holly Golightly in Richard Greenberg’s stage adaptation of Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Featuring original music and songs from the 1940’s, the play transports the audience to the enchanting golden-age of Manhattan.
Set in 1940’s New York, the story follows a young writer, nick-named ‘Fred’, as he joins the ranks of men who have fallen for the vivacious Holiday ‘Holly’ Golightly. As war rages on in Europe, Holly’s past begins to catch-up with her and Fred is caught in the complex web of the New York socialite’s life. Greenberg’s adaptation was a far more candid and bleak take on Capote’s novel than the iconic but soft-edged 1961 film starring Audrey Hepburn as Holly. Capote’s Manhattan was been brought to life by original music from Grant Odling (One Man, Two Guvnors) as well as popular songs from the era.
The cast and creative team, headed by director Nikolai Foster, gave a sparkling and sophisticated production that stays true to Capote’s masterpiece which ‘seems to be woven from starlight’ (NY Times). Lott said that landing the role of Holly is “a dream come true”, and was particularly looking forward to the challenge: “[Holly] has always been an icon to me and I can’t wait to bring my own personality to the role”.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s opened on 30th June 2016 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket and run until 17th September 2016.
