Pop-star Pixie Lott stars in a sparkling new stage adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, London 2016.

This summer may be all about Audrey with a blockbuster exhibition celebrating the icon, but summer 2016 will see a new starlet play Holly Golightly: Pixie Lott will star in the her first West End show since childhood in a shimmering new stage adaptation of Truman Capote’s classic novella Breakfast at Tiffany‘s.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s play: London 2016

Almost 50 years since it was immortalised by the Hollywood film, the story will be adapted by Olivier and Tony Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg. Breakfast at Tiffany’s on stage promises to capture the glamour of 1940s New York. Following sparkling socialite Holly Golightly as her search for a wealthy husband is foiled by the arrival of a handsome writer and romance blooms. But it’s not all light-hearted charm.

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 Greenberg, playwright explained. A mixture of memorable songs from the era and a specially composed original score by Grant Odling (One Man Two Guvnors) will add to the fizz of the play.

Exuberant heroine Holly Golightly, whose mean red moods, nameless cat and exquisite beauty still enamour crowds today, will be played by pin-up pop star Pixie Lott. Stage schooled from the age of 11, Lott has graced a London theatre since a childhood stint in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in the West end.

With a string of smash hit songs (Mama Do, All About Tonight) and a cluster of awards, Lott’s already proved herself to be a talented performer. And her skills don’t stop at singing: she strutted her stuff to plenty of applause on Strictly Come Dancing. While it is a daunting prospect to take on a part made so iconic by the inimitable Audrey Hepburn, Pixie Lott is a promising prospect. She describes playing Holly Golightly as “a dream come true… I can’t wait to bring my own personality to the role“.
