Elisa in the Big Apple! I have to tell you, I’m just finishing up Game of Thrones season 2… I know, I know… Anyway, Emilia Clarke is the absolute best on the show! The BEST! The queen of dragons!
Right now, Emilia Clarke is starring on Broadway in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Elisa went out to the show at also in hopes of meeting her afterwards!
Emilia is super sweet! It makes me love her even more! Check out Elisa’s full report after the jump!
I was able to attend the first preview of Breakfast at Tiffany’s this past Monday. Now, I’ll save my judgement of the show for when I see it closer to Opening, but I will say the two leads give incredible performances!
Emilia Clarke plays Holly Golightly. Cory Michael Smith is Fred, Holly’s neighbor who acts as narrator of the play. The play is based on the novella, not the famous film starring Audrey Hepburn.
Note: I did not notice people taking pictures during the short nude scene. I was, however, only three rows from the stage so if there was a commotion in the balcony, I didn’t hear or see it.
After the show, I waited outside the stage door to meet the cast. I am, as noted in my previous posts, a HUGE Game of Thrones fan. I had met Ms. Clarke at San Diego Comic Con two years ago and was more excited to see her on stage than I was to actually see the show! Neither disappointed.
She and co-star, Cory Michael Smith stopped to sign playbills and photos for the large group of theatre-goers waiting in the chilly New York weather.
They also stopped to posed for photos with fans and for the press. Both were incredibly kind to the fans chatting as they signed. George Wendt of Cheers fame didn’t stop to sign.
I was able to get my Playbill signed and my new Game of Thrones season 3 poster. As Ms. Clarke signed it, she mentioned she hadn’t seen it before!
All around fantastic evening at the theatre!
Be sure to buy tickets for Breakfast at Tiffany’s at the Cort Theatre.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s opens March 20th.
