Eddie Korbich (A Christmas Story), Paolo Montalban (Pacific Overtures) and Tony Award nominees Suzanne Bertish (Wit) and Lee Wilkof (Kiss Me, Kate) are among the Broadway veterans who will join the previously announced Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Cory Michael Smith (The Whale), and George Wendt (Cheers) in the upcoming Broadway production of Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's. Adapted from the novella by Tony Award winner Richard Greenberg (Take Me Out), the drama, directed by Sean Mathias (Waiting for Godot), begins previews at the Cort Theatre on March 4 in advance of a March 20 opening.
The complete company will also include Murphy Guyer (Glengarry Glen Ross), Kate Cullen Roberts (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), John Rothman (Relatively Speaking), Danny Binstock (High School Musical), Tony Torn (The Forest), James Yaegashi (Take Me Out), Elisabeth Anthony Gray, and Pedro Carmo.
Set in 1943 New York City, Breakfast at Tiffany's follows Fred (Smith), a young writer from Louisiana who falls for the vivacious and elusive Holly Golightly (Clarke). The property is best known for its 1961 film adaptation, which starred Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Mickey Rooney, and Patricia Neal.
The creative team will feature Derek McLane (scenic design) and Colleen Atwood (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Wendall K. Harrington (projections design) and Rob Milburn & Michael Bodeen (music and sound design).
