Jake Gyllenhaal on Stage – “Sunday In The Park With George”
Jake Gyllenhaal on stage. British Ambassador Theatre Group is backing the show that stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford on Broadway. The Sondheim musical opened at the historic Hudson Theatre, February 11 and will play until April 23.
The limited engagement is playing in the restored Hudson Theatre, in New York, which was closed in April 20, 1968
Gyllenhaal is usually seen on the big screen in characters that do everything else other than sing! His latest film is Life said to be the scariest around.
The Academy Award nominee said he was thrilled to be playing his first singing role in a stage performance. And on Broadway. It is a new venture for him and once you’ve seen the video you will agree the man can sing!
This is how it goes
Sondheim and Lapine 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. The artist is 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.
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Book by James Lapine. Directed by Sarna Lapine
