I have long been an Audrey Hepburn fan, with a special focus on the 1960s film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The iconic black dress resurfaces every so often in a magazine, advertisement and even wedding events. This film contains specific elements that sum up the romantic desires of many women such as cocktail parties, fashion, love and of course jewelry. Following it’s Broadway production, this everlasting classic has also become a video game called Breakfast at Tiffany’s Broadway, in promotion of the play, starring Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clark as Holly Golightly.
In the game, you can enrich your closet by unlocking outfits to kick and beat down creeps while still looking fabulous. Difficult to pull off in pearls, but I’m sure mademoiselle Audrey would’ve handled herself with grace though this ideal might be a bit farfetched. However, as girl gamers, we react as Holly and keep our composure to the point of a break out via fire escape (party scene in the film).
As for the game, the graphics are nothing out of the ordinary and can be found in online games, but I do appreciate the difference in garments. However, nothing can compare to the original film; the conerstone for the different colors and looks that while fresh stay true to it’s relic. The pink silk belt and deep neckline seen below displays a good visual of this balance.
The app is available on iTunes for iPhone and iPad; and on Google play for android. You can purchase tickets for the show by telecharge.com
The play itself is not a re-enactment of the film, rather a more accurate description of events as they unfold in the novel. Richard Greenberg re-wrote the story as a screenplay to embody the original source for the film; Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
So, darlings, you can choose to dance the night away with Fred (another perk in the game), but next time you feel like putting your boxing gloves on, do not hesitate to opt for silk!
