The cast recording of the recent Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Sunday in the Park With George, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford, will be released for streaming and download on September 22, with the CD hitting stores in November. The album, which was recorded in April, is produced and mixed by Bart Migal.
Sunday in the Park With George follows painter Georges Seurat (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 (Ashford), not realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years.
