Potential cat actors are primping this week to audition for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” on Broadway. Producers are auditioning cats for the eponymous role of “Cat,” lead character Holly Golightly’s feline friend.
If you think your cat has what it takes to land the role, submit your cat’s picture and your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. A casting session will be held during the week of Feb. 11, 2013, to find the perfect cat star.
“Holly Golightly’s beloved companion, ‘Cat’, is one of the most famous felines on all of literature,” said play director Sean Mathias. “We will search high and low until we find the perfect animal to take on this role.” The character was created by Truman Capote in his 1958 novel, which was made into a movie in 1961.
“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” begins performances at New York’s Cort Theatre on March 4, 2013, and will officially open March 20, 2013. This stage adaption will star Emilia Clarke (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) as Holly Golightly, Cory Michael Smith as Fred and George Wendt as Joe Bell.
