Ambassador Theatre Group Productions, Riva Marker and Jeanine Tesori, in association with New York City Center, have announced that Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford will reprise their acclaimed roles as George and Dot/Marie, respectively, in the anticipated London transfer of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine‘s Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, Sunday in the Park with George.
Sarna Lapine‘s joyous production will play a strictly limited season at the Savoy Theatre in London’s West End from 11 June to 5 September 2020.
This beautiful production began at New York City Center, it then transferred for a sold-out limited season at Hudson Theater on Broadway where it was met with universal critical and public acclaim.
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 for the next 100 years.
James Lapine & Stephen Sondheim said:
“We are thrilled that a London audience will get to see the recent Broadway production of Sunday in the Park with George with Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford reprising their extraordinary performances. We also look forward to seeing them joined by a terrific British company.”
