Emilia Clarke to star in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' on Broadway
The table is set for a Broadway production of "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
Emilia Clarke, who stars in HBO's "Game of Thrones," will play Holly Golightly, the country girl who morphs into a Manhattan-man mesmerizer. Audrey Hepburn famously played the role in 1961 movie.
Truman Capote's novella will be adapted by Richard Greenberg, the Tony-award winning playwright of "Take Me Out."
Sean Mathias will direct the show, which is expected to debut in a Shubert theater on the Great White Way sometime next year, according to reports.
Greenberg said in a statement he wants to return to the original setting of the novella, "stylish and romantic, yes, but rougher-edged and more candid than people generally remember."
