Truman Capote’s classic tale, brought to life so memorably by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film, has been adapted for the stage by Tony and Olivier award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg (Take Me Out, Three Days of Rain), and contains memorable songs from the era as well as original music by Grant Odling (One Man, Two Guvnors).

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is set in New York in 1943.

Fred, a young writer from Louisiana, meets Holly Golightly, a charming, vivacious and utterly elusive good-time girl.

Everyone falls in love with Holly – including Fred.

But Fred is poor, and Holly’s other suitors include a playboy millionaire and the future president of Brazil. As war rages on in Europe, Holly begins to fall in love with Fred – just as her past catches up with her.

Pixie, famed for hits like All About Tonight, said: “I am so excited to play Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s ... I absolutely love Holly’s style and free spirit; she has always been an icon to me and I can’t wait to bring my own personality to the role. Alongside music, I’ve always wanted to be in a play, and getting the opportunity to be in one of my all-time favourites and play this fabulous character is a dream come true.”

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday 4th to Saturday 9th April 2016

Tickets are on sale now priced from £18.50 to £37.
