Jake Gyllenhaal makes West End debutStephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s seminal musical Sunday in the Park with George transfers to the West End, with Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal leading the revival at the Savoy Theatre.
Based on the life of artist George Seurat, the musical follows the creation of his most famous painting, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte”. With obsession taking hold, Seurat is consumed by a need to “finish the hat”. As he shuns his fellow artists, scorns the French bourgeoisie and deserts his lover Dot, the consequences of his obsession echo over the next 100 years – all the way to his great-grandson, another artist called George.
Jake Gyllenhaal is a star of stage and screen, with an Academy Award nomination for Brokeback Mountain (2005). He will make his West End debut in the musical alongside Annaleigh Ashford, who is best known for her Broadway work, including Glinda in Wicked (2007) and Lauren in Kinky Boots (2013).
A masterful and well-loved tale of obsession, art and legacy, Sunday in the Park with George tickets will delight art connoisseurs and musical theatre aficionados alike.
