Truman Capote's glory days as a celebrated writer were revisited at the opening of Richard Greenberg's Breakfast at Tiffany's on Wednesday night at the Cort Theater.
This production misses the mark because it emphasizes the wrong sets of emotions. In a dark, noir-like setting, Holly gets wrapped up in the nightlife. Fred gets lost in the shuffle. But you never feel that either of them is comfortable in their own skin.
In the new production of Capote's adored Breakfast at Tiffany's at the Cort, Emilia Clarke, of Game of Thrones, is no long and skinny drink of water, but she's undeniably darkly beautiful.
