Sunday in the Park with George - 2017 - Broadway

Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford, who both earned raves for their portrayals, will return to their roles, and will mark the second major Broadway revival of Sondheim and Lapine's Pulitzer Prize-winning musical.



Sondheim and Lapine's masterpiece follows painter Georges Seurat (Jake Gyllenhaal) 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 (Annaleigh Ashford), not realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years.



Sunday in the Park with George is produced on Broadway by Adam Speers for Ambassador Theatre Group, New York City Center, Jeanine Tesori, and Riva Marker.

Featured Reviews For Sunday in the Park with George


‘Sunday In The Park’ Review: Jake Gyllenhaa &, Annaleigh Ashford Bring Revival To Broadway’s Newest Theater - Deadline
Nevertheless, their names will not soon disappear from the thoughts of Tony voters come spring, for what was clear when the show was presented last October is more so today: This is a spectacular revival and the principals are simply breathtakingly good. The performances are assured - indeed, they've only grown in confidence. Moreover, the semi-staging by Lapine's niece, Sarna Lapine, with musical staging by Ann Yee, reveals (as if we needed reminding), one of the most beautiful, moving and endlessly inventive scores ever written, not to mention the equally ambitious and rewarding book that frames it.

If Gyllenhaal and Ashford are the name draws, don't be surprised when you fall absolutely under the spell of the entire ensemble, including Seurat's mother (played by Penny Fuller, who turns out to be a battleaxe with a far-from-hardened heart), her nurse, two soldiers, two chatty shop-girls called Celeste (Ashley Park and Jenni Barber, adept scene-stealers both, particularly Park and her adorably annoying laugh), Louis the baker with whom Dot makes a calculated match, and two hideously philistine-ish American tourists.

Here's how I slept with dozens of guys and gals on Wednesday, April 19 ... to get bargain tickets to 'Sunday in the Park With George.' It's called 'rush,' and many Broadway shows offer discounted seats around $40-$50 (a pittance compared to the regular ducats that run $150 and up). They're sold as soon as the box office opens at 10 a.m., so the early bird gets the rush. At many shows, getting in line by 7 a.m. often does the trick.

Broadway's Max Chernin made his debut last spring in the Steve Martin and Edie Brickell musical, Bright Star, and is currently starring in the revival of Sondheim and Lapine's Sunday in the Park with George - a beautiful living portrait illustrating the complexity of art, love, and human relationships. The talented young actor joins a top-notch cast, headlined by Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford, and plays a soldier who doesn't speak, but is keenly aware of the world around him. BroadwayWorld had the chance to speak with Chernin during the production's final days and learned more about his career experiences; the music and lessons of Sunday in the Park with George; and the importance of keeping art alive in this technological age.

Inspired by Georges Seurat's pointillism masterwork 'A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte,' the authors explore how 'the art of making art' can be less about applying paint to a canvas as it is about applying a signature to a check.
