Friel to have ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’

New stage adaptation also stars Joseph Cross

Anna Friel will star as Holly Golightly in a new stage adaptation of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” previewing from Sept. 9 for a Sept. 29 opening at the Theater Royal Haymarket on London’s West End.

Joseph Cross (“Milk”) also stars as William “Fred” Parsons. Sean Mathias will direct Samuel Adamson’s adaptation, based on the 1958 Truman Capote novella about a backwoods girl intoxicated by Manhattan high life.

Production, with sets and costumes by Anthony Ward, will include “Moon River,” the Oscar-winning tune by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer that featured prominently in Blake Edwards’ 1961 pic version.

Scheduled to run through Jan. 9, the play is the second in Mathias’ season at the Theater Royal Haymarket, following the revival of “Waiting for Godot,” with Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, which opened May 6. “Tiffany’s” is produced by Colin Ingram in association with the Haymarket, and presented by Chambord.

Friel will next be seen in Universal’s “Land of the Lost” and BBC’s “The Street.” Her stage credits include “Lulu” at London’s Almeida and Patrick Marber’s “Closer” on Broadway.
