The classic story originally envisioned by Truman Capote heads to the stage of the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Breakfast At Tiffany’s, which famously featured Audrey Hepburn on the big screen, will play in the West End for an anticipated run over the summer, with the enormously talented Pixie Lott taking on the iconic role of Holly Golightly.
This new adaptation of the story will introduce a new generation of crowds to the story first experienced in 1958 with Capote’s original novella. Over the years since its publication it spawned a classic film with Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard and various other adaptations as well, including a play that appeared at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2009.
It takes those with theatre tickets back to the New York of the early 1940s. There they meet the character of Fred, who meets the irresistible Holly Golightly when he arrives in the Big Apple from Louisiana. He falls for her, just like everyone else, but as a poor man feels that he struggles to compete with her richer and more successful suitors. Over time, however, she begins to tell Fred more about her past and lifestyle, which fascinates him, but her past will not always stay where it belongs.
And whilst the return of such a classic story is cause for celebration, so is the casting of Pixie Lott in the role of Golightly. She joins a wealth of other pop stars to appear in the West End, from Nicole Scherzinger (Cats) to Ronan Keating (Once), and will make a big impression at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Whilst she is best known for songs such as All About Tonight and albums like Turn It Up, she has also acted in films like Fred The Movie and television shows like Inspector George Gently.
Breakfast At Tiffany’s is set to be directed by Nikolai Foster with a script by Richard Greenberg, adapted from Capote’s original, which features well known songs of the period. Whether you are a fan of the original or new to the whole story, this is not one to be missed.
Breakfast At Tiffany’s is set to entertain the crowds at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London’s West End, with performances beginning on Thursday 30th June 2016.
