The '60s movie classic will be taking the stage again
Breakfast at Tiffany's will make another go of it on Broadway. The George Peppard-Audrey Hepburn movie classic -- first adapted for the stage in 1966 with Richard Chamberlain and Mary Tyler Moore as the leads -- closed during previews, never having officially opened. It's considered one of the greatest Broadway disasters of the '60s. Now Emilia Clarke, from HBO's Game of Thrones will try to fill Hepburn's shoes. The production team promises this production, set to open next February, will more closely resemble Truman Capote's novella, which was somewhat rougher edged than the big-screen version. While there will be a new script and score, there's no word yet on whether the 1961 movie's signature song, "Moon River," will be retained.
