"It’s New York in the 1940s, where the martinis flow from cocktail hour till breakfast at Tiffany's. And nice girls don't, except, of course, Holly Golightly. Pursued by Mafia gangsters and playboy millionaires, Holly is a heart-breaker, a perplexer, a traveler, a tease..."
Truman Capote’s classic novella has long been known for the highly stylized and iconic film. However, thanks to Richard Greenberg’s adaptation a whole new audience has the chance to see the novella come to life on the stage, in an interpretation truer to the original.
The play’s action is set during WWII on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and revolves around Holly Golightly, a Café Society girl-for-hire who charms and beguiles every man she meets. The more gritty stage interpretation may surprise film devotees, but Holly's charm persists.
This stage adaptation will be slightly grittier than the film we all know and more faithful to Capote's novel. Don’t miss one of the shining flowers of American fiction come to life onstage this November.
