Full casting announced for Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Full casting has been announced for the 2016 UK and Ireland Tour and limited West End season of Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s, adapted by Richard Greenberg and directed by Nikolai Foster.

As previously announced, Pixie Lott will star as Holly Golightly for the UK and Ireland Tour from 3rd March to 30th April and 13th to 25th June before reprising her performance at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 30th June to 17th September. Verity Rushworth will play the role from 2nd May to 11th June.

Matt Barber (Atticus Aldridge in Downton Abbey) will play Fred and Victor McGuire (sit-coms Trollied and Bread) will play Joe Bell. They will be joined by Robert Calvert as Doc, Naomi Cranston as Mag, Charlie De Melo as José, Tim Frances as Rusty Trawler/Editor at 21, Andrew Joshi as Yunioshi, Melanie La Barrie as Mme Spanella and Sevan Stephan as OJ Berman/Dr Goldman. Katy Allen and Andy Watkins complete the cast.

The show contains memorable songs from the era as well as original music by Grant Olding (One Man, Two Guvnors).

Nikolai Foster (Artistic Director Leicester Curve where the production premieres) said, "It's a testament to the beauty of Capote's imagination, the extraordinary characters he created and Greenberg's faithful adaptation, that alongside Pixie and Matt, we have assembled such an accomplished company of actors to bring this dazzling play to life.

"We are thrilled to welcome the company to Curve and our audiences in Leicester and on tour in the UK. Every week of 2016 will see a Curve production on a UK stage and we are thrilled Breakfast at Tiffany’s will be part of this commitment to sharing work that has been made at Curve."
