I absolutely love both the film and the book – and the play was based on the novella, so a very different ending from the film, and a very different Holiday Golightly. When Truman Capote sold the rights to his story, he specified that he had wanted Marilyn Monroe to play Holly. Paramount Pictures ignored this and cast Audrey Hepburn in what she classed as her most miscast role. The story was toned down a bit to stay in keeping with Hepburn’s image, and so the play had the more ‘sexy’ Holly. In the book, Holly is much more blunt than her movie counterpart.
Both Anna Friel and Joseph Cross were amazing. We were sat right up in the gods, and it was still awesome. We had a fabulous night! 🙂
Oooh, we also went to Spaghettti House, just opposite the theatre, and it was LOOOOOOOVELY. They’ve got other branches, and if you get the chance to go, DEFINITELY have the garlic bread. It’s really good, and definitely not date food!! Haha 😉
