Breakfast at Tiffany’s with Pixie Lott at Haymarket Theatre London was my very first Theatre or Musical Experience. Sure, I visited and played in various plays during lessons in school, but I have never made it to an actual play. Until I heard about the Breakfast at Tiffany’s Musical at Haymarket Theatre in London. Soon later I booked a Ticket online, the Shows are once daily at 7:30 pm and another second show on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 3 pm. During my recent visit to London I went to a Monday evening show at 7:30 pm.
Super convenient, when booking Tickets online, you just pick them up at the Box Office inside the Theatre. To find them you should take one of the center entrances and then on the right there are windows, these are the Box Offices. My Surname was enough and I was handed over my Ticket, followed by climbing up all the way to the Gallery. As, yes, I had a Ticket of the cheapest category for £21.20 including all fees. A seating plan can be found on their website here. Once I arrived at the very Top I had a great panoramic view on the small blue illuminated stage. The seats are cushioned wooden benches and after the 2 and a half hour play I was regretting not getting a ‘better’ Ticket with real Chairs.
But of course now to the most important part, the Breakfast at Tiffany’s Play at Haymarket Theatre London. 25-year-old Pixie Lott, an English singer, songwriter and actress, played Holly Golightly, once played by Audrey Hepburn. After watching the Breakfast at Tiffany’s Movie several times I was used to a brunette Holly Golightly, and seeing blonde Pixie on stage, with curly Hair was quite a difference. What was a little weird as well was that all the actors had an obvious British accent, and constantly speaking about New York (where the story by author Truman Capote takes place). Nevertheless, Pixie Lott as Holly Golightly sung a total of three songs and if it were up to me she should have sung even more as she is really such a great singer! Check out this Video of her singing Moon River. Due to my far away seats I was only able to see the people, but not recognize any mimics what was a little sad. Also, I was honestly missing the iconic scene in Front of a Tiffany’s Jewellery Store, Tiffany’s was only mentioned like once or twice the whole play.
All in All, the Actors did a great Job and if you’re looking for a ‘young musical’ in London you should definitely visit Breakfast at Tiffany’s at Haymarket Theatre London. But hurry up, the last play will be on the 17th of September 2016!
