Sunday in the Park with George
Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford star in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece Sunday in the Park with George coming to London for a strictly limited run at the Savoy Theatre from June 2020.
One of the most acclaimed musical of all time - Sondheim and Lapine's masterpiece follows painter Georges Seurat (Jake Gyllenhaal) in the months leading up to the completiong of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Consumed by the need to "finish his 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 subequent transfer dazzled audiences and was praised by critics, becoming one of the fastest selling musicals on Broadway. Sunday in the Park with George is 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.
