Emily Atack replaces Verity Rushworth in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Emily Atack will now play the role of Holly Golightly in the UK Tour of Breakfast at Tiffany’s from 2nd May to 11th June 2016.

Atack will perform at His Majesty’s Aberdeen, Nottingham Theatre Royal, Theatre Royal Bath, Glasgow Theatre Royal, King’s Theatre Edinburgh and Wycombe Swan. 

The actress replaces the previously announced Verity Rushworth who has withdrawn from the show because she is expecting her first child. Atack shares the role with Pixie Lott.

Atack can currently be seen in the remake of Dad’s Army, which topped the UK box office earlier this year. She is best known for her role as Charlotte Hinchcliffe in The Inbetweeners. Atack recently shot Iron Sky 2 alongside comedian Tom Green, and Lies We Tell opposite Harvey Keitel, Gabriel Byrne and Gina McKee.

Atack says: "I am so flattered and honoured to be playing Holly Golightly; to take such an iconic role as my stage debut is both incredibly exciting and challenging. I can't wait to get started and plan to have as much fun with it as possible. I'm very much looking forward to getting in front of an audience and going on this journey with them every night.”

Also in the cast of Breakfast at Tiffany’s are Matt Barber as Fred, Victor McGuire as Joe Bell, 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, with Katy Allen and Andy Watkins.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s began its run of performances at the Leicester Curve on 3rd March, before embarking on a UK & Ireland Tour on 15th March. There will be a 12-week season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London’s West End from 30th June to 17th September 2016.
