‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ Aims for Broadway in 2013

There’s a fresh push to get Holly Golightly onto a Broadway stage.

Producers said Wednesday that a new adaptation of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is aiming for a Shubert theater in New York City in February 2013. It will be directed by Sean Mathias.

The new stage adaption of Truman Capote’s classic 1958 novella will star Emilia Clarke of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” as the eccentric party girl Golightly, a role Audrey Hepburn played in the 1961 movie.

Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg will pen the book. His other plays include “Take Me Out” and “Three Days of Rain.”

A stage version was first attempted in 1966 but was shuttered after just four previews. That version had a book adapted by Edward Albee and songs by Bob Merrill. (AP)
