Originally due to run at the Savoy Theatre in summer 2020 the production was previously delayed until 2021 due to the pandemic.

Producers have now announced it has been postponed until further notice.

A statement read: “Due to ongoing government restrictions around travel and the reopening of theatres at full capacity, the producers of Sunday in the Park with George have taken the difficult decision that it is not going to be possible for the show to take place in London in 2021. Everyone involved remains 100 per cent committed to making the show work when conditions and schedule align to make it possible.

“Existing ticket holders will be contacted via email within seven days to discuss their options.”

Jeanine Tesori, Riva Marker and Adam Speers said: “We’re of course disappointed that Sunday in the Park with George couldn’t happen last year as planned but remain committed to bring this beautiful show to the West End.

“We speak for the entire creative and production team when we say how much we wanted to bring Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s once-in-a-lifetime musical with Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford’s remarkable performances to London and will let everyone know as soon as we are able to make it happen’.”

New dates are to be confirmed.

With music & lyrics by Sondheim and a book by Lapine, the musical is inspired by Georges Seurat’s iconic painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.

Gyllenhaal stars as Georges Seurat/George while Ashford plays Dot/Marie.
