Roman Holiday Is (Eventually) Heading to Broadway

March 24, 2016


Before she was the iconic Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Audrey Hepburn was Princess Ann, touring the Eternal City with actor Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday. Now, the classic 1953 film is slated for a Broadway production, after it runs at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Theater.

Roman Holiday
will be produced by the team behind the Carole King musical Beautiful, and will feature popular Cole Porter songs. A director hasn’t yet been named for the Broadway staging.

Since details are scarce, we thought it would be fun to choose a Princess Ann character. Maybe Katharine McPhee?

Or maybe Finding Neverland‘s Emma Pfaeffle? No matter who they choose, the character will probably need to be a top-notch singer.

Which wide-eyed ingenue with pipes of gold would you pick for the role of Princess Ann?
