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, is set for CD release on December 8 via the Arts Music division at Warner Music Group. It was previously announced that the CD would hit stores in November. The album, which was recorded in April, is produced and mixed by Bart Migal.

Gyllenhaal recently posted video trailer featuring behind-the-scenes footage of the recording sessions on his Facebook page:

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.

Directed by Sarna Lapine, Sondheim and Lapine's Pulitzer Prize-winning musical also stared Brooks Ashmanskas (Mr./Charles), Jenni Barber (Celeste #2/Elaine), Tony Award nominee Phillip Boykin (Boatman/Lee), Mattea Marie Conforti (Louise), Erin Davie (Yvonne/Naomi), Claybourne Elder (Soldier/Alex), Tony Award nominee Penny Fuller (Old Lady/Blair), Jordan Gelber (Louis/Billy), Tony Award winner Robert Sean Leonard (Jules/Bob), Liz McCartney (Mrs./Harriet), Tony Award winner Ruthie Ann Miles (Frieda/Betty), Ashley Park (Celeste #1/Waitress), Jennifer Sanchez (Nurse), David Turner (Franz/Dennis), Max Chernin, MaryAnn Hu, Tony Award nominee Michael McElroy, Jaime Rosenstein, Julie Foldesi, and Andrew Kober.
