Breakfast at Tiffany's Tickets

Theatre Royal Haymarket

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.

In a new adaptation of Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the multi award-winning singer and songwriter, Pixie Lott, stepped into the shoes of the beguiling extrovert, Holly Golightly. Written for the stage by the Tony and Olivier award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg, this production at the Theatre Royal Haymarket looks to give Capote’s novella a new lease of life.

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”.

Very slow, I went because Pixie Lott was in it, but I’m afraid I left at the interval, the bad seat and slow pace of the show was just too much to bare.

This was my second time seeing the show! Pixie Lott is a great Holly Golightly and the songs were great. The show follows the book closely. Definitely worth seeing!

The play was good but I have to say that I found it a little lacklustre. Pixie's singing was great and there were some funny parts but all in all it lacked the magic of the movie. I came out underwhelmed and a little disappointed.
