‘Sunday In The Park With George’ Adds 2 Performances
14 July, 2016 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines, Sunday In The Park With George

One night of Jake Gyllenhaal just isn’t enough.

That’s the conclusion reached by the artistic team at City Center, which sold out tickets to a one-night concert performance of “Sunday in the Park with George,” starring Mr. Gyllenhaal, so rapidly that it has decided to add two more performances.

And that’s not all. City Center said Thursday that it had chosen Annaleigh Ashford, a Tony-winning comedic actress, to star opposite Mr. Gyllenhaal, known for his film roles. He will play the French painter Georges Seurat; she will play his slighted lover, Dot.

The event, combining two much-admired performers with a much-loved American musical, is a fund-raiser for the nonprofit performing arts organization.

Jake Gyllenhaal To Star In ‘Sunday in the Park with George’
24 May, 2016 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines, Sunday In The Park With George

Jake Gyllenhaal has agreed to star in a one-night-only performance of “Sunday in the Park With George” to raise money for New York City Center.

Mr. Gyllenhaal, although best known as a film star, wowed musical theater fans last summer with his star turn in an Encores! Off-Center production of “Little Shop of Horrors” at City Center. And “Sunday in the Park,” with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by James Lapine, is one of the most beloved shows in musical theater. The show, a look at the artistic and romantic compromises faced by the painter Georges Seurat, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1985.

The concert performance is being produced by Jeanine Tesori, the Tony-winning composer of “Fun Home,”.

The gala, honoring the philanthropist Adrienne Arsht, is scheduled for October 24; performance-only tickets will be sold for $75 beginning at noon on May 25 at nycitycenter.org.
