Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford to star in Sunday in the Park with George in London next June

Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Tony Award® winner Annaleigh Ashford are to reprise their Broadway roles  in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece Sunday in the Park with George at the Savoy Theatre in London for a strictly limited 16 week run  from 11h June  - 5th September 2020.

They originally starred in a concert version of the show as part of the 2016 gala for New York City Center. The following year, they returned to the roles under the direction of Sarna Lapine to reopen the historic Hudson Theatre on Broadway.

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 realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years.

Originating at New York City Centre in 2017 , the subsequent transfer of this musical was one of the fastest selling musicals on Broadway.
