Savoy Theatre London Tickets, News & Reviews - Sunday In The Park With George
Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Tony Award® winner Annaleigh Ashford star in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece Sunday In the Park with George coming to London for a strictly limited run at the Savoy Theatre from June 2020.
One of the most acclaimed musicals of all time – 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 realising that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years.
Originating at New York City Centre, the subsequent transfer dazzled audiences and praised by critics, was one of the fastest selling musicals on Broadway. Destined to be the theatrical event of 2020 – be there to witness the musical about the art of making art – this is not your ordinary Sunday.

If Whitney Houston (1963-2012) is, even in death, ‘Queen of the Night’, then who is ‘Queen of the Day’? These are the sorts of questions that fleetingly crossed my mind during Whitney - Queen of the Night, which has even less exposition than Thriller Live. There are a few moments in which the audience is given a few facts about Houston’s life, but nothing that her fans didn’t know already - she won Grammy awards and sold millions of records. Like many Americans, Houston believed in God, so the … [Read more...]
