Jake Gyllenhaal and Tony® winner Annaleigh Ashford opened Broadway’s new Hudson Theatre in the Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine Pulitzer Price-winning masterpiece Sunday In the Park with George. This strictly limited 10 week run dazzled audiences and was praised by critics.
“DESTINED TO BE FOREVER SPOKEN OF WITH MISTY-EYED BRAGGING RIGHTS BY ANYONE WHO SEES IT.” –Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Jake Gyllenhaal is radiant. His searing theatrical presence and unwavering focus seems to consume and illuminate the dark. He has a voice of richly flexible timbre that confidently elicits the most delicate shades of passion and despair.”
Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“The luminous Annaleigh Ashford delivers a performance with both gorgeous precision and spontaneous warmth matched by her eloquent singing.”
Ben Brantley , The New York Times
