The recent Broadway revival of Sunday in the Park With George will play a limited engagement in the West End at London’s Savoy Theatre. Performances will begin June 11, 2020; tickets are currently on sale through September 5.

Reprising their performances as George and Dot, respectively, are Jake Gyllenhaal (soon to return to Broadway in the transfer of Sea Wall/A Life) and Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford. The two first took on the roles in the Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine musical for a New York City Center gala, later sharing the stage again in a 2017 Broadway revival that reopened the Hudson Theatre.

Additional casting for the London production, directed by Sarna Lapine (niece of James Lapine), will be announced at a later date.
The musical first played London in 1990 at the National Theatre. A 2005 revival at the Menier Chocolate Factory went on to play the West End before transferring to Broadway via Roundabout Theatre Company.
