Jake Gyllenhaal’s big theater dreams keep coming true.
The Gyllen-yum has been tapped to play the lead role in a one-off concert performance of Sunday in the Park with George on Oct. 24. You know, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Stephen Sondheim play, all for the benefit of the New York City Center.
Jakey-bear – who last summer starred in the New York City Center’s Encores! Off-Center production of Little Shop of Horrors – will play painter Georges Seurat in his artistic struggle leading up to the completion of his “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.”
