Tickets went on sale earlier this week for Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Sunday In The Park, a one night gala event in New York in October starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Sometimes movie stars end up on Broadway and aren’t so welcome. Jake? They love him on stage. The NY Times Ben Brantley, who hasn’t hesitated to sh-t on James Franco, considers Jake an exception, once noting that:
"… Jake Gyllenhaal… is one of the few American movie stars who was also clearly meant to be a stage star. (Can we keep him?)"
It’s looking like a promising fall if you’re a Jakey fan. In addition to Sunday In The Park, Jake stars in Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals, now confirmed for a November limited release around US Thanksgiving, going wide in December. Which is a textbook award schedule. Which means they must have some confidence in its prospects.
Award season Jakey?!
