For anyone that either hasn’t read the book, or seen the classic Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard movie, the story is that of country girl turned New York socialite, Holly Golightly, who’s wild life becomes the fascination of her new tenement neighbour, Fred. Over the course of year he gets to see the highs and the lows of her lifestyle choices, while falling into her world and becoming a little lost in it himself for a while.
The cast for the play includes Matt Barber as Fred, Victor McGuire as Joe Bell, Robert Calvert as Doc, Naomi Cranston as Mag, Charlie De Melo as Jose, Tim Frances as Editor and Rusty, Andrew Joshi as Yunioshi, Melanie La Barrie as Madame Spanella and the Stern Lady Boss, Sevan Stephan as O. J. Berman and Dr. Goldman, along with Georgia May Foote as Holly. Katy Allen and Andy Watkins also make up the ensemble cast, with the addition of Bob The Cat as Cat to round things off nicely.
As well as being directed by Nikolai Foster, the production of Breakfast At Tiffany’s has been adapted by Richard Greenberg from the Truman Capote novella, with Melanie Knott directing the movement of the cast. The set and costumes have been designed by Matthew Wright, the lighting is by Ben Cracknell, sound design by Mic Pool and Grant Olding has composed the music for the show.
If you can’t make the tour dates, the only other opportunity to see it is with the run of the Pixie Lott-fronted Breakfast At Tiffany’s at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London. It opened on the 29th June, so it’s also your earliest opportunity to see the show, and it will be running through until the 17th September 2016, just before the UK tour kicks off.
