Sunday In The Park With George

June 11 - September 5, 2020

Marvelous... Mr. Gyllenhaal translates the intensity that has characterized his most memorable screen appearances into a searing theatrical presence, in which his eyes are his center of gravity.

A West End Run For The Sondheim and Lapine Tony Winner!

Hold onto your hats, Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford are heading to the Savoy Theatre with the acclaimed Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine classic, Sunday In The Park With George! The duo reprise their scintillating turns as Georges Seurat and Dot for a limited 16-week West End run in June 2020 with Sarna Lapine returning to direct.

With a book by James Lapine and music and lyrics by the undisputed king of Broadway Stephen Sondheim, Sunday In The Park With George is a fascinating exploration of artistic inspiration set to some of Sondheim's most playful musical numbers, including "Colour and Light" and "Finishing the Hat".

Originally debuting on Broadway in 1984, Sunday In The Park With George won two Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Returning to New York in a semi-staged concert version at the New York City Center in 2016, Sunday In The Park With George (along with Gyllenhaal and Ashford) transferred to Broadway in 2017 where it ran for a critically acclaimed two-month run! 

WHAT IS SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE ABOUT?

One of Sondheim's lesser-known gems, this show centres on the painter Georges Seurat as he creates his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Art and reality merge as the show delves into Seurat's obsessive imagination, while also offering up glimpses into the lives of the people he immortalised on his canvas.
