Sunday In The Park With George Information
Sunday in the Park with George at the Savoy Theatre has been postponed until further notice.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford are set to reprise their roles in Stephen Sondheim's musical Sunday in the Park with George, which transfers to the West End's Savoy Theatre following Broadway success in 2017.
With a book by James Lapine, the musical is inspired by the French painter Georges Seurat and his work titled 'A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte'. The story concerns a character called George, a fictionalised version of the artist, who immerses himself in the painting.
Gyllenhaal and Ashford will reprise their roles in Sunday in the Park with George in the West End at the Savoy Theatre.

Philip Quast and Maria Friedman starred in the musical's London premiere, which opened at the National Theatre in 1990. Directed by Steven Pimlott, the production went on to win the Olivier Award for best new musical beating the only other nominee, Into the Woods, which is also written by Sondheim and Lapine.
Sunday in the Park With George was revived in 2005 at the Menier Chocolate Factory. Directed by Sam Buntrock, the musical starred Daniel Evans and Anna-Jane Casey as George and Dot. Following its success at the Menier, the musical transferred to the Wyndham's Theatre in 2006, with Jenna Russell replacing the then-unavailable Casey in the transfer. The London production then transferred to Broadway for a limited run starring Evans and Russell.
The musical was later revived again on Broadway in 2017, at the Hudson Theatre starring actor Jake Gyllenhaal and received hugely positive reviews from critics stateside.
