Breakfast at Tiffany’s on stage

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favourite films in the whole world. I’ve seen it a million times. I’ve also read the classic novel by Truman Capote more times than I can even count. So when the opportunity came to see the play adaptation in the New Theatre in Cardiff, I couldn’t have bought my tickets fast enough.

New Theatre Cardiff

Starring Georgia May Foote as the captivating Holly Golightly, the play was engaging and well performed for the whole of the two hour show. With the play narrated by the character of Fred, we were guided through his flashback of the time period where he came into contact with the evasive Miss Golightly. And of course, we watch him love her unconditionally and were completely unsure of her feelings towards him.

I don’t believe the character of Fred was as likeable in the play as it was in the Hollywood movie and although Matt Barber acted out the role perfectly, the character was awkward to watch at times. I thought Georgia May Foote really stood out in her role as Holly Golightly and it was hard to take your eyes off her when she was in a scene. Plus, her version of ‘Moon River’ sounded gorgeous, so that was an added bonus.

However, what really stole the show was a cat named Bob who played the role of ‘Cat’. He was so well-behaved that first of all, I thought it was a stuffed toy cat. But no, Bob was originally a rescue cat but is now arguably the star of Tiffany’s on Stage. His timing was perfect and he was so adorable that I really could have taken him home!

The whole cast performed splendidly and this was a great venue to watch such a classic story unfold. I’ve never visited the New Theatre before and it was such a treat to be able to visit. I’d recommend visiting if a show that you’re interested in comes to town, particularly for a special occasion.
