Jake Gyllenhaal Set to Take the Stage in Sunday in the Park With George
Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford will take the stage today as Georges Seurat and Dot in the New York City Center concert production of Sunday in the Park With George. The Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine musical is set to run through October 26.
In addition to Gyllenhaal and Ashford, the cast includes Brooks Ashmanskas (Shuffle Along), Phillip Boykin (On the Town), Max Chernin (Bright Star), Carmen Cusack (Bright Star), Gabriel Ebert (Thérèse Raquin), Claybourne Elder (Bonnie and Clyde), Lisa Howard (It Shoulda Been You), Zachary Levi (She Loves Me), Liz McCartney (Annie), Michael McElroy (Disaster!), Ruthie Ann Miles (The King and I), Stephanie Jae Park (The King and I), Gabriella Pizzolo (Fun Home), Phylicia Rashad (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Lauren Worsham (A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder), Jaime Rosenstein (Wicked tour), and Solea Pfeiffer.
Sunday in the Park With George follows painter Georges Seurat 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, not realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years.
