Academy Award ® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Tony ® winner Annaleigh Ashford star in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, Sunday In the Park with George.
“IT’S HARD TO KEEP YOUR EYES OFF JAKE GYLLENHAAL! He is both extremely warm and extremely intense. The result, as Seurat would approve, is extra luminosity.”New York Magazine
“ANNALEIGH ASHFORD IS A TRANSFIXING DELIGHT from the opening title song to the 11 o’clock number - funny, flirty and ultimately touching.”The Washington Post
One of the most acclaimed musicals of all time – 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 over the next 100 years.
Originating at New York City Centre, the subsequent transfer dazzled audiences and praised by critics, was one of the fastest selling musicals on Broadway. Destined to be the theatrical event of 2020 – be there to witness the musical about the art of making art – this is not your ordinary Sunday.
