In another installment of life imitating art, The New York Post has announced that Montie, the cat cast to play The Cat in the Broadway version of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, has been fired. My fictional story−My Six Days on Broadway: Crossed by a Golightly Cat−posted last week, tells a story of a cat being fired from the cast of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. That’s just what happened, y’all!
Poor Montie was unable to follow cues. Should Truman Capote have written in a dog instead? Probably. Like my fictional cat, Montie was nipped before opening night. Sorry Montie. Look on the bright side. I heard you’re a hell of a waiter. And Oceana! Doggie bags don’t get better than that!
Montie’s been replaced by Moo, who is not a cow but has played one on TV−in those laughing cheese commercials. We wish Moo better luck.
