Leeds Grand Theatre have released the first images of Pixie Lott as Holly Golightly in the new stage production of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Pixie comes to Leeds Grand Theatre in April next year and is the only Yorkshire venue on the tour, before the production transfers for twelve weeks in the West End.
Truman Capote’s classic tale, brought to life so memorably by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film, has been adapted for the stage by Pulitzer Prize-winning Finalist and Tony and Olivier Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg (Take Me Out, Three Days of Rain), and contains memorable songs from the era as well as original music by Grant Odling (One Man, Two Guvnors).
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is set in New York in 1943. Fred, a young writer from Louisiana, meets Holly Golightly, a charming, vivacious and utterly elusive good-time girl. Everyone falls in love with Holly – including Fred. 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.
Pixie Lott said: “I am so excited to play in Breakfast at Tiffany’s … I absolutely love Holly’s style and free spirit; she has always been an icon to me and I can’t wait to bring my own personality to the role. Alongside music, I’ve always wanted to be in a play, and getting the opportunity to be in one of my all-time favourites and play this fabulous character is a dream come true.”
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday 4th to Saturday 9th April 2016. Tickets are on sale now priced from £18.50 to £37. Book online at leedsgrandtheatre.com or by calling the Box Office on 0844 848 2700.
