When you stop and think about all the reasons young women pack-up and move the concrete jungle, aka, New York City, you start to wonder if these ideas are rooted from movies like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and TV shows like Sex in the City. Whether you live in New York or you’re visiting for the first time, the city light will amaze you. If you’ve never seen the Empire State Building, you’ll be blown away by its size and beauty. There are so many fun things to do in NYC. If you’re not sure where to start, then start Broadway.
Recently, Breakfast at Tiffany’s announced it would begin performances on Broadway in February 2013. Starring in the play is British actress Emilia Clarke, HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Clarke will play Holly Golightly, the young New York society girl. The director is Sean Mathias, a Tony nominee in 1995 for staring “Indiscretions.” Published in 1958, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” is novella by Mr. Capote that made into a film in 1961 starring Audry Hepburn. Hepburn was nominated for an Academy Award in 1961 for her performance.
“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,” Richard Greenberd said in a statement.
