Home Uncategorized Broadway: “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” with “Game of Thrones” Star Will Close Sunday

It’s always sad when a show doesn’t make it on Broadway, even if it was not very good. “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” with “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke, will close on Sunday. It should have closed sooner. It was quite awful. The adaptation of Truman Capote’s famous story was tone deaf in so many ways. It did offer a bathtub scene of Clarke and the actor who plays the Capote stand in “Fred” naked, and still no one wanted to see it. With all negative reviews, the production was running at  46.4% capacity. It was the lowest attended Broadway show so far this season, save for the just-closed “Hands on a Hardbody.” What went wrong? “BT” was a British import, where stark rearrangements of American icons are thought of as edgy. This production ignored the nostalgia for the “Tiffany’s” film with Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. Anyway, it’s over. And not a moment too soon.
