The revival of Stephen Sondheim's Sunday in the Park With George, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford, officially opens tomorrow, Thursday, February 23. In advance of the big day, the production has released photos to share the show's color and light. Check out photos from the production, playing through April 23 at the newly reopened Hudson Theatre, in the gallery below.


Sondheim and Lapine's musical 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.

The cast also features Tony Award nominee 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.

The production features set design by Beowulf Boritt, projection design by Tal Yarden, costume design by Clint Ramos, lighting design by Ken Billington, sound design by TKai Harada, co-projection design by Christopher Ash, hair and wig design by Cookie Jordan, make-up design by Joe Dulude II, music coordination by Seymour Red Press, orchestrations by Michael Starobin, production supervision by Peter Lawrence, musical staging by Ann Yee, and music direction by Chris Fenwick.
