Just when I thought April couldn’t get any better (spring, my birthday, flower crowns, the birth of our brand new niece!), it does — with four new Audrey Hepburn treats this month: the new Audrey Hepburn book, Audrey in Rome; Audrey on the cover of Vanity Fair; Audrey Hepburn’s son Luca Dotti talking about his mother on the Today Show; and, even Audrey on Broadway (well, Holly Golightly on Broadway, that is).
Here’s the scoop…
New Book: Audrey in Rome
Edited by Audrey Hepburn’s son Luca Dotti, the new Audrey Hepburn book Audrey in Rome features nearly 200 candid photographs (many of which have never been published) from her 20+ years living in Rome. I’ve read many Audrey Hepburn books and articles but never realized that Audrey lived in Rome (other than for Roman Holiday, of course). Did you know that? How did I not know that? Audrey in Rome is described “as personal as having Audrey Hepburn’s family scrapbook in your hands.” I can’t wait to devour all the photographs and information that I can. Audrey in Rome comes out on April 16th but you can pre-order Audrey in Rome here.
As if the new Audrey Hepburn book, Audrey in Rome, wasn’t enough, Audrey Hepburn is also on the cover of Vanity Fair this month (May 2013 issue), with an article about the new book Audrey in Rome. I’ll be devouring that too…Thanks to my friend Chrystina for the heads up!
Audrey Hepburn’s Son on the Today Show
And thank you to one of my Instagram followers for letting me know that Audrey Hepburn’s son, Luca Dotti, was on the Today Show talking about his mother and the book Audrey in Rome. Click play to watch the clip above.
Finally, did you know that Breakfast at Tiffany’s is on Broadway? Truth be told, I’ve held off on discussing it, because I could never imagine wanting to see it. With no fault to the actress who plays Holly Golightly, Emilia Clarke, how could anyone live up to Audrey Hepburn’s film version of Holly Golightly? And this didn’t help. But, now that I’ve had time to set with it, I must admit I’m intrigued. While I’m still on the fence, if there were a trip to New York in my future, I don’t think I could resist seeing Breakfast at Tiffany’s on Broadway. How about you? Have any of you seen it or would you want to see it?
p.s. Speaking of things I want to see on Broadway, I’m dying to see Tom Hanks’ Broadway debut in Nora Ephron’s final play, Lucky Guy. Nora and Audrey in one month. It’s like a Christmas miracle in April.
