Jake Gyllenhaal to Star in 'Sunday in the Park with George' in NYC
Jake Gyllenhaal will take on the leading role of George in Stephen Sondheim‘s famous musical Sunday in the Park with George in a one-night only performance to benefit the New York City Center.
The show tells the story of painter Georges Seurat in the 1800s, and his romantic relationship with a woman named Dot.
Additional casting has not been announced. Last summer, Jake starred in the Encores! Off-Center production of Little Shop of Horrors in a limited engagement.
Tickets for this production go on sale tomorrow, the New York Times reports. The production is scheduled for October 24.
