Tired of giving or getting the same cheap chocolate, the same middlebrow mall jewelry, the same oversized teddy bear holding a normal sized teddy bear holding a tiny teddy bear holding a heart? Want to celebrate Valentine‘s Day a little differently this year?
Drink champagne before Breakfast on the wildest night New York ever knew!
That’s right, folks, this Valentine’s Day, the Old Franklin Schoolhouse is Apartment 2E and the famed luxury retailer, Tiffany and Company.
When we first meet Holly Golightly (Texan farm girl-cum-NYC socialite) she’s rousing the residents of her Upper East Side brownstone with a spate of late night bell buzzing, having once again forgotten her front door key. And it’s here that she runs into the building’s new tenant, a struggling writer she dubs Fred, who is charmed and startled thereafter by her boisterous parties, her phalanx of wealthy boyfriends, her mysterious visits to Sing Sing to see the incarcerated gangster chief, Sally Tomato.
A heartsick New York novella by Truman Capote and an Oscar nominated film starring Audrey Hepburn, Tiffany's tells the story of a wistful wild thing with a penchant for powder room pay-offs and foot long cigarette holders, a poor nameless slob called "cat," and the man who falls for them both.
FEATURING: Thom Boyer, Laurence Mintz, Michael Jarmus, and starring Danielle Illario as "top banana in the shock department."
WITH: Theatrical lighting, period costumes, vintage commercials, Golden Age radio equipment, and extensive sound effects.
PLUS: Themed deserts, artisanal chocolates, champagne cocktails, wine, beer, as well as Danish pastries (in paper bags, natch) and coffee.
AND: Danielle Illario sings the Manicini/Mercer theme song, "Moon River," LIVE! (along with a handful of other period love songs).
ALSO: Tiffany blue carnations, generously provided by Gardenias Floral, will be used as table centerpieces, and then awarded to the first 35 people who buy tickets!
