The West End transfer of Sunday in the Park with George starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford has been postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19.
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 was due to open at the Savoy Theatre on 5 June 2020.
New 2021 performances dates are yet to be confirmed but all customers will be contacted regarding their bookings and will be exchanged once new dates are confirmed.
Jake Gyllenhaal said “We are, of course, disappointed to postpone our upcoming season, but know that safety is a top priority and science must lead the way. London’s West End is incredibly special to me, and it will be an absolute honor to return to the stage so we can eventually share Sunday In The Park With George with audiences in 2021.”
Annaleigh Ashford said “As we all do our part to make the world a safe place for ourselves and our neighbours, it is with a heavy heart that this production of Sunday in the Park With George is postponed. I believe at the end of this storm; we will be together again in “our perfect park” on a beautiful Sunday. “
James Lapine & Stephen Sondheim’s masterpiece follows painter Georges Seurat (Gyllenhaal) in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting. Consumed by his need to finish the painting he alienates the French bourgeoisie, spurns his fellow artists, and neglects his lover Dot (Ashford), not realising the ripple effect of his actions.
Lapine & Sondheim said “We are happy that despite having to postpone the imminent production of Sunday in the Park with George, London audiences will eventually get to see Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford reprising their wonderful performances alongside a terrific British company.”
