Emilia Clarke is trading in Daenerys Targaryen’s famous look for Holly Golightly’s: The first photos of Games of Thrones’ Clarke as Holly from the new Broadway play Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s have been released.
The classic New York love story, based on the novella by Capote and best-known from the 1961 movie starring Audrey Hepburn, comes to the stage when it has its world premiere on March 20. In addition to Clarke, the show will star Cory Michael Smith as Fred and is directed by Sean Mathias with a script penned by Richard Greenberg, the Tony Award-winning writer of Take Me Out.
“The goal of this version is to return to the original setting of the novella, which is the New York of the Second World War, as well as to resume its tone — still stylish and romantic, yes, but rougher-edged and more candid than people generally remember,” Greenberg said in an earlier statement.
