Well, the cut-out of a New York skyline does a good job of reminding us where we are! Anna Friel is captivating as Holly Golightly -- her dresses in the show are even nicer than the ones she wears at afterparties, and her American accent isnt nearly as bad as others have claimed. I highly recommend the play, even to those who, like me, couldnt imagine anything topping the wonderful film.
