Game of Thrones Star heads for Broadway

Once filming has wrapped  for the highly anticipated third season of Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke isn’t going to be hanging up her silver mane for just some much needed down time. Instead she will be leaving Westeros and heading to New York for the on stage production of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, as the infamous Holly Golightly. Exciting news, since Audrey Hepburn is and always will be my all-time favorite actress, and Emilia Clarke’s performance as Danerys Targareyn is arguably the best thing on the HBO show, excluding my obvious and therapy seeking crush on Khal Drogo.  No mere Hollywood remake though, the ever influential book written by Truman Capote and made synonymous with the little black dress worn by Misses Hepburn, will now be adapted for the Broadway stage. “The goal of this version is to return to the original setting of the novella, which is the New York of the Second World War, as well as to resume its tone — still stylish and romantic, yes, but rougher-edged and more candid than people generally remember,” Greenberg says in a statement, via Entertainment Weekly. Greenberg, who won a Tony for his work on “Take Me Out,” has written the script, while Sean Mathais will helm as director. Look for this new adaptation at the Shubert Theater in New York in February. I’ve already begun saving up my money for a flight, as this is sure to be a broadway smash hit.
