All dressed up and everywhere to go, "Holly Golightly" takes on Manhattan and the Broadway stage in this adaptation of Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's. Tony winner Richard Greenberg brings Capote's famed novella to the Great White Way for 2013.

Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s begins Preview performances on March 4, 2013, with its official Opening night scheduled for March 20, 2013, at the Cort Theatre located at 138 West 48th Street.

This production is created by Tony Award-winning writer Richard Greenberg, of 2003's Take Me Out, who adapted Capote’s masterpiece novella of the same name. Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s is set in 1943 New York City, as World War II rips apart Europe and the Pacific. "Holly Golightly" seemingly has no cares in the world except for her playboy suitors and wealthy admirers, until she meets poor, struggling writer "Fred" from Louisiana.

Starring as "Holly Golightly," a role made famous by Audrey Hepburn in the film version of Breakfast at Tiffany's, is Emilia Clarke, who is perhaps best known as the "Mother of Dragons" on the popular fantasy television show "Game of Thrones."

The Cockfight Play's Cory Michael Smith appears as "Fred," the young writer who falls in love with "Holly Golightly." Also appearing in this new production is six-time Emmy Award-nominee George Wendt, who became famous playing "Norm" in the hit TV show "Cheers." He plays "Joe Bell."

Rounding out the cast are 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.

Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s is directed by Tony Award nominee Sean Mathias who helmed Broadway production of The Elephant Man and Indiscretions.

The creative team for Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s includes Tony Award winner Derek McLane. He also designed sets for Kathleen Marshall's Nice Work If You Can Get It, the 2011 Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim's Follies, and the 2013 Broadway revival of The Hieress.

Costume Design is by three-time Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood, who designed the costumes for numerous notable films including the film version of the iconic Musical Theatre masterpiece Sweeney Todd, Rob Marshall's Memoirs of a Geisha, and the film version of the Tony Award-winning production Nine the Musical.

Lighting Design is led by Peter Kaczorowski, who won the Tony Award for Best Lighting for his work on The Producers, the new Mel Brooks musical. He also lit Venus in Fur, Golden Age, Wit, and Nice Work If You Can Get It.

Production Design is by Wendall K. Harrington with Music and Sound Design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen.

Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s is produced on Broadway by Colin Ingram Productions Limited, Donovan Mannato, and Dominic Ianno.
