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.

There were moments during 9 to 5 The Musical, which has its origins in a 1980 motion picture of the same name, when I failed to laugh at punchlines. This was not because I was fighting the last vestiges of a bout of influenza and kept laughter to a minimum to stop myself from coughing profusely and thus disturbing the performance for others in the audience (though I was). It was more that some of the ‘jokes’ were simply unfunny. In an era of anti-sexual assault and women’s empowerment movements, … [Read more...]
