“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” won’t be serving up performances for much longer.

The Broadway play, Richard Greenberg’s new adaptation of Truman Capote’s classic novella, will have its final show on Sunday after playing just 17 preview and 38 regular performances at the Cort Theatre, producers announced Monday.

The play, directed by Sean Mathias, opened March 20 and stars Emilia Clarke (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) as Holly Golightly — played by Audrey Hepburn in the famed film version — and Cory Michael Smith as Fred.

Producers would not give a reason for the closing Monday, but according to The New York Times, the show will close with a loss.

The play received only 1.5 stars from amNewYork’s theater critic Matt Windman.
