ABOUT Sunday in the Park with George
Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford in Sunday in the Park with George.
Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain, Nightcrawler) and Tony Award® winner Annaleigh Ashford will star in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Sunday in the Park with George.
First seen at New York City Center in 2016, followed by a sold-out run at Hudson Theater on Broadway in 2017, this acclaimed production, directed by Sarna Lapine, will transfer to London’s Savoy Theatre in summer 2020.
Sunday in the Park with George runs from 11 June 2020 until 5 September 2020 at the Savoy Theatre, London.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
Sondheim and Lapine’s masterpiece follows painter Georges Seurat (Jake Gyllenhaal) in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting – A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Consumed by his need to “finish the hat”, Seurat alienates the French bourgeoisie, spurns his fellow artists, and neglects his lover Dot (Annaleigh Ashford), not realising that his actions will reverberate for the next 100 years.
