Athough he is an Academy Award-nominated movie star, Jake Gyllenhaal has always been a fan of musical theater. In the summer of 2015, he starred in a four-night run of Little Shop of Horrors and then, in October 2016, another four-performance stint of Stephen Sondheim’s masterpiece about the clash between love and art, Sunday in the Park with George.
“Performing Sunday in the Park was something like pure joy,” Gyllenhaal told me, calling from his apartment in Manhattan before heading to the Hudson Theatre, where he was about to start a tech rehearsal for the newest production of Sunday in the Park, which will open on February 11 until April 23, 2017. “The short run was too short of a time for joy to be on stage,” he continued. “I wanted to prolong joy, so we’re back. They didn’t have a hard time convincing me.”

In Nocturnal Animals, the devil is in the refined details. Tom Ford’s sophomore directing effort (in theaters Friday in New York and Los Angeles; additional cities Nov. 23 and opens nationwide Dec. 9), his follow-up to 2009’s A Single Man, infuses a Hitchcockian thriller with modern-day opulence, telling a story of death and heartbreak.
Susan (Amy Adams) is a wealthy (if miserable) married art gallery owner living a carefully curated life in L.A. who receives a manuscript written by her ex-husband Edward (Jake Gyllenhaal). She — and the story — soon disappear inside the book’s plot, in which a fictional family experiences a brutal carjacking on the backroads of Texas at the hands of a psychotic killer (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).
Adams shot her designer-clad scenes in Los Angeles, separately from the Texas carnage, with her character decked out in Cartier, Louis Vuitton and Chanel.
