New York City Center, which is currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, is posting daily highlights from former Encores! and gala productions.

The series now presents a selection from its 2016 benefit production of Sondheim and James Lapine's Sunday in the Park With George, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford: Gyllenhaal singing "Finishing the Hat."

The production, which was directed by Sarna Lapine, subsequently transferred to Broadway's Hudson Theatre.
