The man can sing!
Jake Gyllenhaal is set to take on the iconic role of George in the new Broadway revival of Sunday in the Park with George that will play at the Hudson Theater for a limited engagement from Feb. 11 to April 23.
On Tuesday, Feb. 7, we got a glimpse at Gyllenhaal rehearsing for his new Broadway job. And the Oscar nominee has pipes!
Check out the Facebook video Gyllenhaal posted of himself, singing “Finishing the Hat” from the beloved Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine musical.
The video (taken in one single take) was shot by Gyllenhaal’s close friend Cary Fukunaga, who stopped by rehearsals and wanted to share the magic that was happening at the Hudson Theater with the rest of the world.
Gyllenhaal appeared during a brief engagement of Sunday in the Park with George at New York’s City Center last year. The show was met with so much praise, that it is now being taken to Broadway.
Make sure to get your tickets now to see more of this wonderful singing! And maybe we can use this video as a petition to make Gyllenhaal the next Disney Prince. Can we make that happen?
