Special guest Sir Ian McKellen, stars Emilia Clarke, Cory Michael Smith, and George Wendt, and More, go on about Broadway’s Holly Golightly (and her purrfect pal).
We’ve been enraptured with world-class fantasy girl (and “phony”) Holiday Golighty ever since iconic writer Truman Capote put her between the pages of novella Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Audrey Hepburn brought her to life onscreen in the film of the same name, but never has Holiday, aka Holly, been more up close and personal than she is currently onstage at the Cort Theater, where Richard Greenberg’s stage adaptation is making its Broadway debut. Starring Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Cory Michael Smith (The Whale) in a new production staged by Sean Mathias, the show took its opening bow on March 20, 2013. TheaterMania checked in on the glowing cast, as well as Broadway-bound star Sir Ian McKellen (the upcoming Waiting for Godot), who has some strong opinions about the performances of the infamous “cat,” as well as our fresh-faced stars. Watch this exclusive behind-the-scenes video for a taste of what Holly’s got in store for you.
