However, it appears Trevor Nunn, who was originally attached to direct, is no longer on board, with Theatre Royal Haymarket director Sean Mathias - currently helming Waiting for Godot starring Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen - now in place instead. Another name attached is American actor Joseph Cross, best-known for his work in films Milk and Running With Scissors, who is tipped to star alongside Friel.
According to the Mail, "the plan is for Breakfast at Tiffany's to be the second production in Mathias' season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket", where Waiting for Godot began previews last night (opening on 6 May). It continues to 26 July, so it would be safe to assume the Breakfast at Tiffany's - if it goes ahead - will open there later in the summer.
