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.
