EMILIA CLARKE TO PLAY HOLLY GOLIGHTLY IN BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S STAGE S=

Thursday, October 11, 2012 - How Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is to follow in movie legend Audrey HePburn's footsteps by playing Holly Golightly in a new theater adaptation of Breakfast At Tiffany's.

The British actress will make her Broadway debut as the character made famous by Hepburn in the classic 1961 film next February .

Tony Award winner Richard Greenberg will adapt the project, based on Truman Capote's famous novella, while Sean Mathias will direct, according to TheWrap.com.

A statement from Greenberg reads, "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."

A Breakfast at Tiffany's stage show was originally set to open in New York in 1966, but the musical bombed and closed after only four performances in previews.
