There was also a musical
version of Breakfast at Tiffany's
with music and lyrics by Bob Merrill
The original production began its Broadway previews at the Majestic theatre in New York on December 12, 1966 and closed on December 14, 1966. The show never officially opened on Broadway.
The original cast included Mary Tyler Moore, Richard Chamberlain and Sally Kellerman.
Through its out of town tryouts, the show went through many changes, most notably the title (originally it was supposed to be called Holly Golightly) and its book.
The Philadelphia and Boston try-outs had a script by Abe Burrows. For reasons unknown, the script was completely re-written for its Broadway run by Edward Albee.
Legend has it that there is a bootleg recording of one of the infamous Broadway performances, but there was no official recording of the score until Original Cast Records made a studio recording of the entire score in 1995, starring Faith Prince, Hal Linden and Sally Kellerman (reprising her role from the Broadway cast).
