The world premiere of Tony Award winning playwright Richard Greenberg’s new play, Breakfast at Tiffany’s will hold a casting call to find the perfect cat to take on the iconic role of “Cat.” Felines with dreams are encouraged to submit a photo and owner contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. A casting session will be held during the week of February 11, 2013 to groom the candidates for stardom.
The play begins performances at the Cort Theatre on Monday, March 4, 2013 and will officially open on Wednesday, March 20, 2013.
This stage adaption of Truman Capote’s classic novella is based on his most beloved masterwork, Breakfast at Tiffany’s which is set in New York City in 1943. The 1961 film version included Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. The song Moon River was also written for Audrey.
‘Fred’, a young writer from Louisiana, meets ‘Holly Golightly’ (Clarke), a charming, vivacious and utterly elusive good-time girl. Everyone falls in love with Holly – including Fred (Smith). But Fred is poor, and Holly’s other suitors include a playboy millionaire and the future president of Brazil. As war rages on in Europe, Holly begins to fall in love with Fred – just as her past catches up with her. According to imdb, about nine cats were used throughout the film as the role of Cat. Audrey also said that the scene where she throws Cat into the rainy street was the most distasteful thing she ever had to do on film.
